Alhaji Usman Alhaji called on management of the Board to evolve methodologies that will transform unfriendly attitude of some health workers because people are very much complain about it.
On Boards needs, the SSG said that he will do his best to see that state government do something about them, adding that Cabinet office is the coordinating office while MDAs are the implementers of government projects, so there is close working relation between them.

We are appealing to SSG to kindly provide us with enough mobility to carry out this noble task smoothly so as to meet His Excellency’s stance to providing qualitative service delivery to the people of the state,” Dr. Kabo solicited.
He then commended the Governor Ganduje for fantastical performance in health sector, adding that medical doctors across the country are commending kano state government Governor Ganduje for completing Muhammadu Buhari General Hospital and Sheikh Isyaku Rabiu Paediatric Hospital and equipped them with state-of-the-art equipment.
