“Governor Abubakar Sani Bello reversed the bad maintenance culture we have in the country with the pilot programme of renovation of Jummai Babangida Aliyu hospital for women and children. And first time  in the history of the state that we have a facility manager who is managing our  projects. 

“The building you are seeing started by the last administration which this administration completed but we saw the need to embark on the renovation of house hospitals. We started work this last with the hope that it will be completed within some weeks but the covid-19 came and the job stopped but in the process we discovered that the hospital needed more than painting. So, we ended up on wholistic renovation of the hospital and provision of other facilities that are lacking in the hospital,” the commissioner said.
