Governor Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje of Kano state has signed into the law, the state Contributory Healthcare Agency Bill 2016.

Speaking after the signing the bill at the state Executive Council chambers, Governor Ganduje said history has been made as the development is a fulfillment of one of his inaugural promises, to better the living conditions of civil servants.

The Contributory Healthcare is a scheme that among other things facilitates payment for medical and surgical expenses incurred by civil servants in the state, included in their benefit packages as a means of motivating them.

According to statement issued by his Director of Media and Communications, Salihu Tanko Yakasai, the governor stated that as the scheme is being implemented, private sector workers would also be incorporated, highlighting that it would be expanded subsequently to accommodate community involvement, so that access to health care delivery services in the grassroots would be enhanced.

Governor Ganduje congratulated the state civil servants, whose welfare would be enhanced, promising that a management would be constituted for the agency very soon, adding that the scheme is sustainable because its source of funding is assured.
