Kano governor establishes clinic for pilgrims in Makkah

To provide adequate medical care to its pilgrims, the Kano state government has established clinics in Makkah, Saudi Arabia. 

 The clinics, aimed at complementing the National Hajj Commission of Nigeria (NAHCON) clinic, will provide required medical attention to the state’s pilgrims.

 The state Amirul Hajj and the deputy governor, Comrade Aminu Abdussalam Gwarzo, is scheduled to visit the clinic immediately upon his arrival from Maddina to assess the level of commitment of the state pilgrim board to the pilgrims.

The head of Media Team for Kano state pilgrims and the deputy governor’s spokesperson, Ibrahim Garba Shuaibu, disclosed this in a statement circulated to journalists Sunday.

Ibrahim said  the Coordinator of Health Matters for the State Pilgrims Board, Hajiya Binta Yusuf,  stated that approval has been given for the clinics which will operate in House Number 5 in Makkah. 

“NAHCON officials have visited the site and given their approval for the clinic to operate,” she stated.

Binta noted that Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf had earlier sponsored a team of 11 health professionals, led by Professor Abdurrahman Abbas Sheshe, to provide medical care to the state’s intending pilgrims.

He added that establishment of the clinics is a further demonstration of the state government’s commitment to the welfare of its citizens.

She said Kano is the only state in Nigeria that NAHCON approved to open  clinic for its pilgrims in Makkah.
