The United States Agency for International Development, USAID, on Friday in Abuja donated a Peugeot 307 station wagon to the Federal Capital Territory Administration, FCTA.
The car is to support the Logistics Management Coordinating Unit, LMCU of FCTA to boost healthcare service delivery to the teeming population in the territory.
Adamu Bappah, the Secretary, Health and Human Services Secretariat, HHSS FCTA, received the vehicle from Kehinde Otto, USAID Deputy Country Director, Technical Department.
Mr Bappah said the vehicle would enhance the monitoring and supervision of health facilities.
“It will equally assist in the promotion and availability of the commodities to all the facilities in the FCT,’’ he said.
The secretary thanked the USAID for the gesture, which he described as “an amazing one’’.
He also enjoined the unit to make judicious use of the vehicle.
The coordinator of FCT LMCU, Halima Gero, assured the secretary that the vehicle would be judiciously utilised.
Earlier, Mr Otto said USAID was ready to continue working with the health sector by ensuring and providing continuous support to enhance healthcare in the territory.
“We will continue to provide support in the area of healthcare facilities in the FCT,” he pledged.
