Secondus said that the provision of the teaching hospital and modern international diagnostic centre would help reduce medical tourisms in Nigeria.
“Nigerians spend about N4 billion annually on medical treatments abroad, am optimistic that the 950 bed capacity Sokoto State University Teaching Hospital would help reduce the figure,” he said.
Secondus also commissioned the General Hospital, Wamakko, Girls Science Secondary School, Wamakko, and the 500 housing units in Gidan Salanke.
Speaking, Tambuwal said that his administration placed a great premium on people’s oriented projects towards improving the quality of life of the people.
