Zulum inaugurates 2.17-kilometre township road, 30-bed PHC

The Borno State governor, Professor Babagana Umara Zulum, has commissioned a 2.17-kilometre road with drainage at Wulari community in Maiduguri metropolis.

 The new road begins from the Ramat Polytechnic on the Maiduguri-Airport road, down to Wulari, opening up access to Wulari and connects with Maiduguri’s city centre.

The governor also commissioned a 30-bed primary health care centre (PHC) built in an area that used to be notorious for prostitution and other antisocial and criminal activities.  

Daily Trust on Sunday reports that the project was conceived when the governor visited and discovered that the area had been a criminals’ den.

The PHC, which was fully fenced, tiled and landscaped, has two general wards for males and females, and it is equipped with diagnostic facilities, a solar electricity system and water facilities.

Speaking during the commissioning, Zulum said that beyond the unveiling, what was far more important was for officials of the state Ministry of Health to ensure delivery of quality medical services to citizens through functionality of diagnostic equipment and the constant availability of doctors, nurses and other health personnel. 

After commissioning the Wulari road and the health centre, Zulum also launched and ordered the distribution of free maternal care drugs and consumables worth over N300million to health care centres across the state.
