Dr Muhammad Gana, Yobe Commissioner for Health, has lauded security operatives for quick response in arresting one Mr Eseh Francis, a proprietor of an illegal clinic and maternity centre in the state.
Gana gave the commendation on Wednesday, after receiving report of the state’s Health Inspectorate Team in Damaturu.
He also applauded efforts of the village Head of Buduwa, Jakusko Local Government and the Primary Health Care Centre staff for promptly reporting the illegal facility in the community.
Dr Garba Fika, Director, Medical Services and Chairman of the inspection team, said while inspecting the facility, ‘Gaskiya Clinic and Maternity’, that it was found to be far below standards and had no approval to operate in any capacity.
“The proprietor was interviewed in the presence of the village head, director, primary health care and the inspectorate team. He was found to be unfit to operate a clinic and maternity centre.
“The accused, who claimed to have a Diploma in Community Health, was handed over to the police for prosecution,” Fika said.
