Buhari Budgets #500 Million To Build Federal Medical Centre In His Village
The administration of President Muhammad Buhari has budgeted N500 million for the establishment of a new federal medical centre in Daura, Katsina State, Mr Buhari’s hometown.
This is contained in the N20.5 trillion 2023 budget proposal presented to the National Assembly by the President earlier in October.
When completed, the hospital will rank Katsina as the only state in Nigeria with two Federal Medical Centres.
The Federal Medical Centre, Katsina, is one of the existing 22 Federal Medical Centres distributed across the states of the federation and Abuja, the nation’s Federal Capital Territory (FCT).
The distance between Daura and Katsina is 83.6 kilometres, and it takes about one hour to travel between the two towns by road.
