Audu who disclosed this in a statement he signed and made available to journalists on Thursday
said that the Civil work at the zonal hospital had been completed with the commencement of the deployment of the required medical equipment to the hospital.

”This implies that under the leadership of His Excellency Alh. Yahaya Bello, Kogites will now be able to access Services at five different Renal Dialysis Centers across the State”, he said.

The Commissioner recalled that in 2016 when His Excellency Governor Yahaya Bello, took over the mantle of leadership, Kogi State had no state owned Dialysis Center.

He, therefore expressed his happiness over the completion of total overhauling of the facility at the hospital, which according to him, was a deviation from the norm that used to be.

”We will like to use this opportunity to appreciate His Excellency Alh. Yahaya Bello, for his unwavering determination to change the narrative in the provision of quality Health care services in Kogi State.”

”Chosing the ancient city of Idah as one of the designated Nephrology Centres is delightful and strategic and we will leave no stone unturned in ensuring that the aspirations of Alhaji Yahaya Bello for Kogi State in the Health Sector becomes a reality,” Audu said.
