Halima Aliko Dangote, daughter of the Africa’s richest businessman, Alhaji Aliko Dangote, has launched the construction of the ultra-modern health facility to be funded by Dangote foundation to the tune of N7 billion at Murtala Muhammad Specialist Hospital, Kano.
According to her, the facility will have 10 operating theaters with whole diagnostic centre to be built by Dantata & Sawoe construction company.
Halima disclosed this at the weekend when she paid a visit to Kano State governor Abdullahi Umar Ganduje at his office at the Government House, Kano, where she informed him about the Dangote foundation intervention in health care delivery in the state.
She disclosed that the foundation’s intervention in primary health care was informed by the need to come to the aid of the less-privileged and supporting Kano community at large.
Dangote’s daughter was also at the secretariat of Gwale local government area in the metropolitan Kano to witness the commissioning of one of the primary health care centres built at Gwale area.
She urged the beneficiaries to ensure sustainability of the programme which cost the foundation over N72 million.
