Sen. Bala Ibn Na’Allah has constructed and handed-over a grade one Primary Health Care, PHC, facility at Kanya, Danko-Wasagu Local Government Area of Kebbi.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that Na’Allah represents Kebbi South Senatorial District on the platform of the All Progressives Congress, APC.

He said the two-floor building, comprising eight wards of out-patient, maternity and paediatric section was handed over to government after its inauguration by Governor Abubakar Atiku-Bagudu of Kebbi.
The governor, who was represented by the Commissioner for Health, Muhammad Jafaru, described the facility as world class.
“This facility is indeed a world class, equipped with modern hospital beds, two incubators, birth delivery suite, medical laboratory, a new ambulance and vast accommodation for personnel.
“This will not only improve on the healthcare of people of Danko-Wasagu local government area and Zuru Emirate alone, but the entire people of Kebbi,” he said.
Mr Bagudu observed that provision of personnel accommodation by Sen. Na’Allah was a critical intervention which would add value to the healthcare system in the state.
This, according to him, will make healthcare providers more comfortable and settled to perform their duties diligently.
He said that it would ultimately translate into good outcome, adding that “We sincerely appreciate that”.
While handing over the keys of the personnel accommodation to the governor, Na’Allah promised that in the second phase of the project he would deliver an additional two-flat personnel accommodation unit and complete the perimeter fencing of the facility.
