Bauchi Assembly calls for more dialysis centres

The Bauchi State House of Assembly has passed a motion calling on the government to increase the number of dialysis centres and subsidise the process by 50 per cent.

A member representing Pali Constituency in Bauchi State House of Assembly, Hon Yusuf Muhammad Bako Pali, has sponsored a motion calling on the state government to establish more dialysis centres and make it free to all citizens.

Bako in a motion, explained that hemodialysis which is the most common type of dialysis, is carried out three days a week and each session lasts for about four hours costing between N20, 000 and N24,000, which is difficult to be afforded by ordinary people.

The lawmaker therefore prayed that government should establish two additional dialysis centres in the north and the central senatorial districts.

The deputy speaker of the house, Hon. Danlami Ahmed Kawule (Zungur/Galambi/Constituency), said due to the nature of health facilities in the country, dialysis centres should not be made free but be made available

Minority Leader, Hon. Bakoji Aliyu Bobbo (Chiroma Constituency), observed that if dialysis is made free, government cannot maintain the centres; instead the house should recommend subsidy for dialysis in the state.
