Governor Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri says his administration is rehabilitating all the general hospitals in the state in addition to building five new cottage hospitals to enhance healthcare service delivery to the people.

The Governor who revealed this while receiving state leadership of the National Association of Nigeria Nurses and Midwifes in his office in Yola said the decay in the healthcare sector informed the decision by his administration to reform the sector.

He added that government will also employ more health personnel especially nurses and midwifes describing them as the engine room of the healthcare system.

Governor Fintiri said that his administration has also re-engaged over one thousand health workers who were previously employed by the immediate past administration despite the faulty process of recruiting them.

He also told the nurses that government is giving allowance to COVID-nineteen frontline health workers in the state and promised to look into the challenges presented to him by the association assuring them of support at all times.

Earlier in her remark, the State Chairperson of the National Association of Nigeria Nurses and Midwifes, Mrs Lami Aminu thanked the Governor for prompt payment of salaries of their members, and for his effort in fighting COVID-nineteen in the state.

Mrs Aminu intimated Governor Umaru Fintiri that the year twenty-twenty was set aside by the World Health Organization WHO as the year of nurses and midwifes in recognition of their commitment in serving humanity.

She enumerated the challenges of the association which include poor remuneration, obsolete equipment, nonpayment of allowances to students of college of Nursing and Midwifery, Yola and inadequate manpower, revealing that the state has six hundred and eighty one nurses.
