Yariman Bakura Specialist Hospital is second most reliable tertiary health facility in Zamfara State initiated by the former administration of Mahmuda Aliyu Shinkafi but completed and put to use by the former administration of Abdulazeez Yari Abubakar.
It was one of the viable projects that was accorded priority by the past government of Abdulazeez Yari Abubakar as he make sure that the tertiary health facility was granted it’s autonomy by the state House of assembly and provided with all the facilities needed for it’s operation.

He said Yariman Bakura is fit to start residency training only if it’s uncompleted residential quarters can be put to finishing hence it has the capacity to accommodate up to thirty medical personals

EDITORIAL OPINION

This medium is of the humble opinion that Governor Bello Matawalle should sustain his good work in the upgrading of the status of the Yariman Bakura Specialist Hospital because if the uncompleted residential estate is the only obstacle that limited the hospital to starting its residency program then he should in the interest of his good will assist the hospital the usual way he used to do so that our indigenous local doctors can begin their residency training at home.
The reality of what is on the ground at the Yariman Bakura Specialists Hospital during our facility tour is that, the effort put in place by the current government of Bello Matawalle has been supportive of the giant stride the current MD and his management staff are doing in making the hospital proud.
The Governor whom we hailed at this point should please support the hospital to commence it’s residency so that his name can be written in Gold even after he ends his tenure(s).
