The Deputy Majority Leader, Bwari Area Council of the FCT, Mr. Dauda Panshambo wants residents to always avail the legislative arm with useful information for legislation that will FasTrack development in the council.
Mr. Panshambo made this known, when the FCT advocacy team supporting the Area Council’s Primary Health Care Centres paid him a visit in his office in Abuja.
Panshambo who appreciated the team for the good work and bringing to the notice of the arm some of the challenges facing primary healthcare centres in the area with particular reference to the non functional generator in Dutse Alhaji primary healthcare said it will be fixed in no distance time.
” Sometimes we don’t know the need of the primary healthcare centres, but if people like you and others close to us inform us, there are some little assistance we can render, like that generator set you mention is something even an individual can handle, which I believe will save a lot of lives”.
“We at this end will support legislations that would improve the wellbeing of our people, that is why we are here, for the primary healthcare centres, it is the closest health facility to the people and anyone could benefit from it, so if it is not in a good condition instead of saving lives people may end up falling victims of avoidable death as a result of a poor environment, not conducive for the health workers to work.”
The team also visited the Hakimi of Dutse Alhaji Abubakar Bako to solicit his support to ensure his subjects were sensitized to take ownership of government facilities in their areas for better and effective health care delivery.
Mr. Bako who appreciated the team said ‘ what you are doing is like a wakeup call for us to take ownership of the facilities provided by the government to ensure the facilities are habitable for us to get adequate services. I will personally talk to people that could help provide necessary assistance to complement government’s effort at ensuring primary healthcare centres meets at least the minimum requirement to provide services to the citizens.”
He added, “Prominent people in the community will be co-opted to support the centre as their cooperate social responsibility”.
The team implementing the Resilient and sustainable system for Health Strengthening, C19RM/RSSH in the FCT, led by Mr. Samuel Simon said the facilities needed to be upgraded, and the drainage facility inadequate which can cause damage to the structure and available equipment in the healthcare center.
