Your Excellency, I wish to draw your attention to the urgent matter concerning the completion of the upgrade of Machina Primary Health Centre (PHC) to a General Hospital, as you approved sometime in June 2022 as carried by many national dailies.

It has been almost three years since you granted approval for the upgrade, and while many PHCs out of the seven you approved across the state have seen progress or are currently undergoing upgrades, Machina PHC has unfortunately been left in a state of abandonment for over two years now. This has had a significant impact on the delivery of health services to the community.

The delay and non-completion of the upgrade have resulted in severe consequences for the residents of Machina and the surrounding areas. Without the necessary medical equipment and infrastructural upgrades that come with a General Hospital status, the provision of essential healthcare services is severely compromised.

The lack of adequate medical equipment means that crucial diagnostic and treatment procedures cannot be performed, thus, resulting in delays in patient care and potentially worsening health outcomes.

Additionally, the outdated infrastructure of the PHC further hampers the delivery of quality healthcare services, as it does not meet the standards required for a General Hospital.

I urge you to prioritize the completion of the upgrade of Machina PHC to a General Hospital and allocate the necessary resources to ensure that this project is completed without further delay. The health and well-being of the people should always be your top priority, and you must take immediate action to address this pressing issue.
