Senator Ishaku Abbo representing Adamawa North in the Senate, has donated the sum of 1 million to the Pauper fund of Federal Medical Centre, Yola.
He made the donation at Federal Medical Centre, Yola where he paid a surprise visit to the hospital wards to check the condition of his constituents admitted and unable to meet financial obligation of paying their medical bills.
According to the Senator “My child was admitted here in 2009. I was also hospitalised in 2010. FMC Yola, to say the least, has improved tremendously both in terms of manpower and equipments.
Look at the ongoing projects. That’s why we supported the move for the upgrading of the health facility to a teaching hospital and we shall ensure that the funds allocated for the actualisation of it, are captured in the supplementary budget.
“As an Ambassador of FMC Yola, I’ll mount a donation campaign, using YouTube, with a view to generating more funds for the Hospital Paupers Fund, so that more indigent patients can have free treatment, among other tasks targeted at adding value to the health facility,” Abbo assured.
Abbo also took to his Facebook page to announce that the event was a success.
