Kaduna state governor, Nasir El-Rufai, has shut down the Government
House Clinic in Kaduna and redeployed its medical personnel to public
hospitals. A statement released by the media aide to El-Rufai, Samuel
Aruwan today April 17th, states that the decision to shut down the
government hospital and move its personnel were taken to boost the
healthcare system in the state.

The drugs and equipment in the clinic have also been
moved to the Yusuf Dantsoho Hospital, Tudun Wada, Kaduna while
Government House staff have been directed to henceforth use the Yusuf
Dantsoho Hospital for their medical needs.

“There are not yet enough doctors in the public health system in Kaduna
State. Therefore it is not prudent to assign doctors, nurses and other
medical staff to serve Government House alone. It is clearly more
beneficial to the wider society if the services of these medical
personnel were made available to the public in a general hospital. In
addition, it is better that everyone working in the Government House
uses the same health facilities as the general public.

Medical personnel from the Government House Clinic have been redeployed
to public hospitals in the state. All drugs and medical equipment in the
Government House Clinic have also been evacuated and are being put to
use at the Yusuf Dantsoho Hospital. From now on, all Government House
staff requiring medical services will proceed to the nearest public
hospital to the Government House like other citizens of the State. It is
expected that the management of the public hospitals will make good use
of the medical personnel, drugs and equipments donated to them.”

Dr. Muhammad Bello Armaya’u, medical director of Yusuf Dantsoho
Hospital, confirmed that the hospital has received the drugs and

He thanked the Governor for the move, promising that the hospital will make good use of the extra capacity it has received.
