Must read

Rabi’u Musa Kwankwaso, the presidential candidate of the New Nigeria People’s Party (NNPP), has promised he would do everything possible not to go abroad for medication if he is voted as president at the 2023 general election.

Kwankwaso made the promise while speaking at the People’s Townhall 2023 powered by Channels Television on Sunday night.

Answering questions on his plans for the health sector if voted as president of the country, Kwankwaso said, “I will do everything under the sun not to go anywhere [abroad] for any medication.

“The failures we have today, the one we said we are going to correct, affects all sectors, including health and I am happy to inform you that our package starts with education as we did in Kano. We built five institutions under the ministry of health – two nursing schools, two midwifery schools and a health technology college.

“We sent men and women abroad in addition to all the scholarships to read medicines. We improved all our general hospitals in Kano.

“We have been to these hospitals, seen all the equipment there [foreign hospitals] and there is no one that Nigeria cannot purchase. So, there is not much difference with what we have here in our hospitals.”
