“Kaduna Govt will recruit workers to assist ABUTH” – Dr Paul Manya

Published

on

The Kaduna State Government has
said it will recruit workers to assist Ahmadu Bello University Teaching
Hospital (ABUTH) begin clinical service at its old site in Tudun Wada,
Zaria. The state Commissioner for Health, Dr Paul Manya, disclosed this when he briefed newsmen on the out come of Monday’s state executive council meeting in Kaduna.

Manya
said the gesture was in continuation of the long standing relationship
between the state government and the university in the provision of
services to people in the area.
“We
have been working very closely with the teaching hospital and based on
this long standing relationship, ABU requested for support to enable it
begin clinical services at the old site of the hospital in Tudun Wada,
Zaria,’’
the commissioner said.
He said the council reviewed the request and agreed to support ABU to recruit staff.
According to him, it is believed that the gesture will bring relief to people living around the area.
He said the decision would also decongest  the patient population at the main hospital in Shika Area.
“Since the old site will now be dealing with health care services, the ABUTH at Shika will concentrate on tertiary health care.
“With
this decongestion, people will find it easier to access health care at
ABUTH Shika and it is also a way of strengthening the partnership
between the state government and the hospital,’’
he said.
Manya
said the government was also strengthening similar relationship between
it and other tertiary health institutions in the state.
He
identified some beneficiaries as the National Eye Centre, National Ear
Care Centre, and the 44  Nigerian Army Reference Hospital.
The
commissioner pledged the government’s continued support for medical
institutions and also reviewed the progress made by the College of
Midwifery, Tudun Wada with respect to its accreditation status.
“You will recall that when the institution was established four years ago it didn’t have any accreditation.
“But
soon after the accreditation was obtained in 2014, we worked hard to
ensure that the students admitted graduate and completed their course of
study.’’
He said the council was happy that 187 students had been indexed by the Nursing and Midwifery council.
Manya further said  that 80 students would also sit for the  final examination in March with another batch  due in September.
“This
is encouraging for both the students and  the parents. It means that if
we are able to graduate these 80 students, they will be injected into
the system to support maternal health care in the state.”
He expressed  the hope that the council would seek additional accreditation between March and July.
“We are hoping that the status of accreditation will increase.’’

L. A Prisoners Infect Themselves With Coronavirus To Get Early Release (VIDEO)

Published

By

A group of silly L.A area prison inmates were very eager to contract the dreaded coronavirus .

They attempted this because they believed that would trigger their ticket out of prison.

According to the L.A. County Sheriff Alex Villanueva who made the startling revelation Monday, said about twenty-four (24) inmates at the Pitchess Detention Center in Castaic attempted (and somewhat succeeded, apparently) to infect themselves way back in mid-April 2020.

The Sheriff revealed that their department saw an increase in spike in confirmed cases out of nowhere.

He said that when they investigated, they found a high number of inmates living in one block of the prison appeared to be deliberately trying to infect each other with COVID-19 any way they could from behind bars.

When Alex Villanueva played the surveillance footages he and his team combed through carefully , and it showed several inmates hanging out in a common area and passing around what Alex described as a hot cup of water, as well as one face mask they’d each put on all in hopes of getting sympathy from a judge to spring them from the facility and let them go home.

But it turns out, their little ploy worked but, only halfway.

Villanueva reported that 21 of the inmates (out of 50 in the block) caught the ‘Coronavirus.

“What they won’t catch is a break” said the Sheriff.

The Buhari administration has been known for enforcing the Nigerian people to patronize Nigerian made goods though without much strategy to make life easier while this transition to economic growth is enforced. Many Nigerians have tagged it a harsh move that is insensitive and inhumane but moreso, Reno Omokri has singled out signals of hypocrisy in the President of Nigeria by outlining certain traits of family moves of the President that shows that he(Buhari) as the No.1 citizen has no regards for anything made in Nigeria but yet wants other Nigerians to embrace Nigerian made goods.

Reno Omokri ‘s tweet reads:

His kids schooled in England. His wife just returned from a 3 month UK stay. His daughter gave birth to his grandchild in Spain (made in Spain), yet
@MBuhari
