Nasarawa State House of Assembly yesterday approved the ceding of Dalhatu Araf Specialist Hospital (DASH), Lafia to the federal government to become the Federal University Teaching Hospital (FUTH), Lafia.

Speaker Ibrahim Balarabe-Abdullahi announced the resolution after the Majority Leader, Tanko Tunga, read Governor Abdullahi Sule’s request letter during plenary.

He explained that the establishment of FUTH by the federal government was a good development for the state.

“Apart from improving the health and standard of living of our people, it will also create employment opportunities for our people and other Nigerians.

“We have also agreed and approved that all assets and liabilities including personnel in the Dalhatu Araf Specialist Hospital be ceded to the federal government,” the speaker added.

He directed the clerk of the assembly to communicate the resolution to the governor for necessary actions.
