Governor Buni signs bills into law to boost healthcare service delivery

Governor Mai Mala Buni of Yobe has signed two bills into law to boost healthcare service delivery in the state.

They are a law for the establishment of the Yobe State Emergency Medical Ambulance Service and another for the establishment of the Yobe State Healthcare and Health-Related Facilities Inspection and Monitoring Agency.

This is contained in a statement by Buni’s Director-General Press and Media Affairs Alhaji Mamman Mohammed in Damaturu on Wednesday.

He said the two laws were aimed at enhancing healthcare delivery in matters relating to domestic and road traffic accidents, as well as monitoring of healthcare facilities to provide standard services.

“ The emergency Medical Ambulance Service law provides an opportunity for first aid treatment to victims from the scene of accidents before reaching medical facilities.

“ Similarly, the Health facility Inspection and Monitoring Agency empowers health authorities to inspect and monitor services provided by all medical facilities in the state to eliminate substandard services and cutting corners.

“ The two laws will ensure that healthcare delivery is not compromised at any level in Yobe state,” the aide said.

The laws were earlier passed by the state House of Assembly.
