Abba Kabir Yusuf, the governor of Kano State, canceled the sale of the Hasiya Bayero Pediatric Hospital that was allegedly authorized by the State’s previous administration.
On Sunday, Yusuf revealed this in a message on his Twitter account.
The revocation, according to the governor, was necessary for medical center renovations. The institution has spent the past 30 years treating women and children exclusively.
He wrote: “Today, we paid an assessment visit to the Hasiya Bayero Pediatric Hospital, once a haven for medical care to children and women in our state for over 30 years, which was closed down by the previous administration.
“I’ve revoked its sale to an individual for a paltry sum. And, we shall now work towards renovating and re-opening it for public use.”
