Nasarawa State Governor, Engineer Abdullahi Sule has vowed that his administration will do everything possible to ensure the take off of the new College of Medicine of Nasarawa state University Keffi

Engineer Sule made vow when he hosted the national officers of Alumuni Association of the Nasarawa state University Keffi, who paid him a courtesy visit at the government house Lafia on Tuesday

He said government must endeavour to train indigenous doctors in order to forestall the hijacking of the medical profession by persons who may not necessarily understand the challenges confronting the state.

The Governor decried the high level of insensitivity demonstrated by striking medical doctors in the state, who inspite of the health and economic challenges posed by COVID-19, downed tools seeking for the implementation of promotions during the past ten years.

Engineer Sule described as “painful”, a situation where the striking doctors working in pubic hospitals, chose to remain adamant, amidst the coronavirus scourge, leaving the people of the state to suffer needless hardships.

While commending the first civilian governor of the state, Senator Abdullahi Adamu for establishing the state varsity, the Governor vowed that his administration will do everything possible to ensure that the new College of Medicine takes off.

“If that is the only thing I can do for Nasarawa State, by the grace of God, I will do it. So that one day, you will have 70-80 percent of doctors working in our hospitals who are indigenes of Nasarawa State,” he stated.

Engineer Sule lamented that the striking doctors seek to compare Nasarawa State with other states in the country, not mindful of the fact that Nasarawa State is at the bottom line when it comes to subvention from the Federal Government.

According to the Governor, only indigens will appreciate the unique challenges confronting the state and would not readily subject the people of the state to more avoidable hardships.

Engineer Sule restated the commitment of his administration to further develop the state owned university, adding that he will continue to commit government and his personal resources to ensure the newly established college of medicine also takes off.

Commenting on the newly established School of Engineering in Gudi, Engineer Sule expressed satisfaction with the progress of work at the site. He commended the Vice Chancellor of the university for the progress of work so far.

Engineer Sule disclosed that he personally donated N20m as take off grant for the Faculty of Engineering, with the institution now about starting the process of admitting engineering students.
