The 5 day long medical outreach, which was organised by Hon. Abdullahi Idris Garba (Mai Solar), member representing Kontagora/Wushishi/Mariga/Mashegu Federal Constituency, included free insecticide treated nets to repel mosquitoes; as well as drugs for common illnesses.


Others are free HIV test, counseling and awareness talk, blood sugar level checks, malaria, hepatitis tests and dental checks.


A woman, Amina Isah, who was one of the beneficiaries of the outreach, thanked the member for the initiative especially the free hypertension and blood sugar screening.


She said, “I knew I was not feeling too fine on the inside but I was too scared to undergo any test or screening because of lack of funds and the fear of the unknown. Many people like my neighbours have been battling with different types of ailments but due to lack of funds I have been unable to run tests for proper diagnosis.

“I really appreciate this team for coming to our aid. With the present economic situation in the country, many of us can’t afford exorbitant cost of treatment at the hospitals. But he had brought doctors to examine us, conducted tests and gave us free medicine. I wish other leaders and personalities can do same.”


Another beneficiary, Ibrahim Tanko, also thanked the medical team for the free drugs and treated nets he was given.

“Since the beginning of the year, I have been finding it difficult to buy some drugs and even pay for laboratory tests. But today, I have been given free drugs, mosquito treated nets and I’m still finding it difficult to believe that it is for free. I am yet to come to terms with it.”


Earlier in his remarks, the initiator of the medical outreach, Hon. Abdullahi Idris Garba, while speaking to newsmen on the initiative on phone said  the initiative was introduced to provide uninsured and free health care service to some medially underserved constituents by providing various free healthcare services..


He told GULMAWUYA that the gesture was aimed at building a healthy community and complementing the efforts of the government in the health sector.
