Tinubu administration launches healthcare outreach in Kuje,

The Minister of State for the Federal Capital Territory, FCT, Mariya Mahmoud, highlighted the efforts of the President Tinubu-led administration in enhancing the health and nutritional well-being of citizens. 

She made this known during the launch of the "Renewed Hope Medical Outreach" in Kuje on Wednesday, marking Tinubu’s one year in office.

Represented by Adedolapo Fasawe, Mandate Secretary of the Health Services and Environment Secretariat, FCT Administration,  Mahmoud stated that Tinubu's administration has implemented measures aimed at improving the country’s health indicators. 

The outreach initiative aims to provide free healthcare services to all residents of Kuje, serving as a pilot area council.

She applauded the significant turnout of residents seeking these services and assured that healthcare delivery would continue at local health facilities, with plans to expand to other area councils and rural communities.

“Today, we have six different departments: antenatal care for pregnant women, general outpatients care, paediatrics, eye and dental care, nutrition services, HIV, hepatitis tests and follow-up care, among other services.

“We also have health insurance for pregnant women to guarantee continued access to health services for the next year.

“We have more than 1,000 people here to access various health services for free.

“We are assuring them that our doctors will see all of them and no one will be left behind.

“This government does not care about your party affiliation, age, sex or religion. It is a renewed hope for all,” she said.

Mahmoud assured the residents of the commitment of the minister of the FCT, Nyesom Wike, to implement Tinubu’s life-changing programmes in line with Tinubu’s renewed hope agenda.

Also, Babagana Adam, permanent secretary in the FCTA’s Health Services and Environment Secretariat, assured FCT residents of improved and sustained access to quality healthcare services.

Adam said that FCTA would continue to work with other relevant stakeholders to provide quality health services to more FCT residents, particularly the poor and vulnerable.

The chairman of Kuje Area Council, Abdullahi Sabo, who was represented by his chief of staff with the same name, described the outreach as life-changing.

Sabo said that the council would continue to complement FCTA’s efforts to improve the health and nutrition well-being of the people.
