Gusau expressed the state government’s commitment to more people-friendly primary health care services.

“When we came on board, three and half years ago, the Governor met a lot of issues which were critical.

“Now that the governor is being courageous, he has made a lot of sacrifices, a lot of changes in which he gave all the security agencies all their needs, and this has made the state to be safe.

“A lot of miners are now applying to come to Zamfara to see that they mine in the state, based on the abundant resources which God has given the state.

“On the issue of the state PHC, a lot of achievements had been made in spite of the security situation, there is nothing that has been abandoned in terms of health.
