Gov’s wife to offer medical services to women


Amina-Lami-AbubakarWife of the Niger State governor, Dr. Amina Abubakar Bello, has indicated her interest to work as a medical practitioner at the Minna General Hospital.

Mrs. Bello, who visited all the female and paediatric wards at the General Hospital, Minna, on Thursday, said as a practising and consultant gynaecologist, she needed to know how women are being catered for.

According to her, “my visit is to see how I can contribute to the society. That is what I do. I see pregnant women. I see women with gynaecological problems. I operate on women on caesarian section; that is what I intend to do as my own contribution. The hospital should expect better services.

“I would like to contribute my own quota, visit some of these women, spend time with them, and help with their surgeries and deliveries.

“I also needed to see how the premise where I will render my services looks like. And I am very happy because the environment is so clean despite the old structures”.

Mrs. Bello however lamented the paucity of space, adding that “it is too small. In a place where you have 600 deliveries, but you have only 20 beds is not encouraging”.

Also, the Permanent Secretary of the Hospital Management Board, Dr. Makusidi Muhammad Muhammad commended the governor’s wife for her input and readiness to contribute her own quota especially technically.
