Abuja - The Kano State Government has commenced plans to train and equip traditional birth attendants in each geographical ward in the state to enable them provide basic natal services to women.

State Governor, Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, disclosed the plans during a review meeting for Polio Immunization at Shiekh Jidda Hospital in the Fagge local government area.

The governor added that more customized tricycle ambulances have been donated to the state by an international donor organization, Clinton Health Initiative to facilitate the government’s safe motherhood initiative.

Ganduje said his government had also introduced health camps for women and children to treat common ailments and detect other diseases for prompt medical attention, urging women to patronise the camps for their own good.

He stated that female Sanitary Inspectors would also be employed to routinely visit houses in every ward to assess personal hygiene of the people and the sanitation of their residences, as part of measures to promote healthy life style among the citizens.

“We shall introduce measures to ensure that Kano is among the cleanest cities in Nigeria. Therefore, we must educate our people on the merits of cleanliness as an enlightened population is more inclined to hygiene,” Ganduje said.
