Governor Abubakar Sani Bello of Niger State has commissioned the remodelled Suleja General Hospital, amidst excitement and jubilation by residents of Suleja. The hospital which has been in a dilapidated condition for close to 59 years now wears a new look.
Speaking during the commissioning of the project, Gov. Sani Bello said the hospital needed expansion and total rebuilding to allow it serve indigenes as well as other Nigerians.
“This hospital was built 59 years ago. This means that the hospital needs expansion and complete rebuilding which we have done for the people of Suleja as well as people from various parts of this country”.
He also added that “this is government’s contribution towards improving the working environment for doctors” and expressed hope that the incoming administration will continue from where he has stopped.
“If this exercise continues, hopefully in the next few years, we will have very good, standard hospitals across Niger State.” He added.
He, then, commended the doctors and other health personnel for their hard work even though they were overwhelmed with work. Speaking earlier, the Commissioner for Health Dr. Muhammad Muhammad Makusidi, said the 59-year-old Suleja General Hospital had never experienced any form of renovation.
He said the remodelled Suleja General Hospital now has modern equipment, a conducive working environment with qualitative, affordable, and accessible healthcare services.
