Borno State Deputy Governor, H.E Umar Usman Kadafur has received the audience of the state's chapter of the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA).
Kadafur said the Zulum-led administration has invested a lot of resources to improve healthcare delivery in the state.
Speaking on Monday, during the visit to mark the 2022 Physicians' Week, Kadafur said the administration had also approved 65 years as retirement age for health workers in the state.
He added that governor Babagana Umara Zulum had provided accommodation to health workers across the state in addition to the renovation of health facilities.
Meanwhile, in his remark, the chairman of the association, Professor Bukar Bakki appreciated the Borno state government.
He said the association decided to celebrate this year's Physician's Week at the government house instead of the University of Maiduguri Teaching Hospital to appreciate the governor for investing a lot in the health sector.
Bakki further appealed to the state government to consider the implementation of hazard allowance for state health workers.
He also urged the governor to intervene in securing the release of their members still in Boko Haram captivity.
Kadafur in his response promised to deliver their message to the governor, adding that henceforth the celebration would be marked with all senior government officials in attendance.
