On September 2, 2016 the government of Kano, approved 137 million for the renovation of PHCs in Filin Mushe, Gwale and Makoda LGA of the state. Kantudu in Makoda LGA of Kano State has a primary health care center that serves 2,500 people, all coming from 13 surrounding villages. The primary health care (PHC) was built 5-6 years ago as senatorial project for Makoda LGA. The PHC has one male and female ward, which are not presently functioning. There are only three staff with one community health worker. The PHC classified has a general hospital, with no emergency transport system, no power system and a skilled birth attendant. All the health infrastructure at Katundu is already dilapidated, while equipment provided are already malfunction.
As the government of Kano decides to equip the health center at Kantudu using the NGN137 million, and also the World Bank Save One Million Soul 420 million loan recently released to Kano State, we call on transparency and accountability on the funds, in order to equip kantudu immediately. Many times, these funds will not reach the community, as such we enjoin everyone, especially, if you are around Kantudu to Join us in ensuring the 2,500 people around the PHC in Kantudu have access to effective and efficient health care.
