Gov. Aminu Masari of Katsina State has said that no Katsina indegen will look for medical treatment outside the state by 2021 because of the facilities being given and the nature of quality medical services that will be rendered.
Masari said this on Friday in Katsina soon after the national executive of the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) issued him with the `Distinguished Service Award’.
He said that his administration chose to concentrate on quality medicinal services conveyance to individuals of the state in accordance with his campain promises.
“What we are doing in the health area is to make a move that will bring great health services conveyance in the state.
“Sometime last week, I was outside the country where we finalised arrangements to further improve healthcare delivery in our rural healthcare centres.
“We want comprehensive medical services in our rural areas; we knew what we met on ground when we came in 2015; our hospitals and health clinics were in bad shape.
“We met a situation where medical doctors and nurses were leaving for greener pastures while we have a growing population in the state
“Our approach to healthcare delivery is sustainable. We are putting in place the type of healthcare that in 20 years to come, our people will continue to benefit from the structures we have put in place in our hospitals and clinics,” the governor said.
