Bauchi State Government in partnership with a German Foundation, Water is Right have renovated and reconstructed sanitation facilities in three state owned hospitals in three local governments.

Speaking at the Flagg off at the State Specialist Hospital in Bauchi yesterday, Governor Bala Mohammed, said the project was brought to fruition when he visited Germany early this year sign many other memoranda.

Mohammed said: “I never believe that this project would be executed in no time. At the point of signing this MoU, I thought it would be a usual signing that at the end of the day nothing would come out of it.

“Water is Right foundation is a grant foundation that has kept its promise. Few months ago, I went to Germany on a working visit and signed many MoUs. This is one of the results of that trip. Of course, Water is Right have kept their promise and we are immensely grateful to them. Today, we are seeing the second benefit of that trip after we saw the distribution of mobile carts to our disabled brothers and sisters which was donated by another organization.

“Today, Bauchi, Gamawa and Kirfi have benefited, the remaining seven other places will also get theirs in due time. I am thankful for patience and experience and many other great things the project coordinator did with the support of the founder of Water Is Right. We will establish a durable framework for maintenance of the facilities because these projects cost several thousands of euros and naira.

“The founder has my biggest respect and admiration for executing these projects. We are taking inventory of all our health facilities, especially in the face of Covid-19, so that we can put our facility on the path of quality public service once again, just we will also employ more doctors and other health workers to man our hospitals. We are immensely grateful to our partners and everyone who helped to make this a success. I urge other public spirited individuals to come and partner with us. Bauchi is open for business,” the governor said.

While reacting on behalf of the Founder, Water is Right Foundation, Mr. Rolf Stahlhofen, the coordinator of the project thanked the governor and other stakeholders who helped to make the execution of the projects successful.
