NEMA donates medicines to Zaria hospital

27 July 2015, 18:30 Augustine Osayande

Abuja - The National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) has donated drugs and other medical consumables to the Ahmadu Bello University Teaching Hospital (ABUTH) in Zaria.

The agency’s North West Zonal Coordinator, Alhaji Musa Ilallah, has presented the medical items to the Chief Medical Director, Prof. Khalid Lawal, at the hospital.

The gesture was as a result of the recent bomb blast attack at the Sabon Gari LGA Secretariat, Zaria during a screening exercise for Kaduna state civil servants. At least 20 people were killed.

More than 20 of affected victims earlier admitted have so far been treated and discharged.

The hospital authorities commended NEMA's reiterated effort and prompt response to the needs of the hospital.
