The Zamfara State chapter of the Nigeria Medical Association (NMA) has said that it is perfectly satisfied with the N12.98 billion allocated to the health sector in the state for 2021 fiscal year by Governor Bello Mohammed Matawalle.
Addressing newsmen in Gusau, the state capital, the state Vice Chairman of the association, Dr. Sanusi Bello, explained that the N12.98 billion represents nine percent of the total budget of the state.
Bello noted that the N12.98 billion allocation has been the highest amount being allocated to the sector in the history of the state, saying that it is in tandem to the current COVID-19 global pandemic.
“In fact, we are perfectly satisfied with the greater priority being accorded to the health sector,” he said.
