About 3,000 locals in Suleja Local Government Area of Niger State, depend on a deplorable structure of Numbwa Tukura Primary Health Care, which is left to the care of an aid volunteer.
Tracka, a collaborative community of active citizens tracking the implementation of government projects in Nigeria, noted that the facility lacks experienced staff and some basic needs.
According to Tracka, the facility, which only has two beds, is not connected to electricity. In addition, it has no water and a labour room.
“They are running on the services of a voluntary worker who was posted there from the LGA office.
“We urgently call on the @GovNiger and @NphcdaNG to fully renovate, staff, and equip the health centre,” Tracka tweeted.
While lamenting inadequate health service in the facility, Tracka noted that the centre is an eyesore and it is detrimental to the health of residents in Suleja.
It, however, urged Abubakar Sani Bello, the Niger State Governor to collaborate with concerned authorities to revamp the facility.
