The management of Aminu Kano Teaching Hospital (AKTH) has announced the naming of a multi-million naira ultra-modern Burns Centre located within the hospital after late veteran broadcaster, Alhaji Magaji Dambatta, for his selfless service to humanity.

The sole financier of the centre, Alhaji Isa Inuwa, said the idea to build the centre was conceived to immortalise the late elder statesman for his immense contribution to the development of Kano State and the unity of Nigeria.

Inuwa, a retired worker of the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC), described late Dambatta as a selfless person who touched many lives during his lifetime.

“The idea of having something like this was conceived 35 years ago. Unfortunately, the late Magaji Dambatta is no more. What I donated to ensure the realisation of this ward, is my entire reward of public service which is my gratuity. Alhaji Magaji Dambatta, the person whose name was given to the ward, was everything to me and I can do all I can for his sake and in his memory,” he said.

The Chief Medical Director of the hospital, Professor Abdurrahman Sheshe, commended the philanthropist for donating to set up the ward for the benefit of the general public.
