No hospital at Junju community in Kebbi state, residents dying

Residents of Junju community at Kebbi state continue to recount their experience as they suffer from diseases that are easily curable while some have died as a result of the absence of primary healthcare centre in the community.

Worse still, the community has over 4000 inhabitants. Community residents say they have made efforts to repair an abandoned hospital in the community, but could not make that happen because they lack the financial resources to execute the task.

The community residents told Tracka officials who were in the community for sensitization and awareness campaign about the primary healthcare allocated to them in the 2018 national budget that they do not believe there is the presence of government in the community.

Mr. Abdullahi Farouk, a federal lawmaker representing the community at the House of Representatives nominated the sum of N20 million in the 2018 national budget as a constituency project in the community.

A Project Tracka was in the community to educate the community resident on how to monitor the project to ensure it is implemented, a senior official of the NGO said.

This is even the situation as Junju community is located near Birnin Kebbi, the state capital.

Apart from the absence of hospital, Junju community suffers terrible infrastructural deficit as it lacks access road and schools.

Mr. Emmanuel Yaro, Tracka Tracking Officer, says that there is only one primary school in the community, and worse still, the school has since been dilapidated.

WEST AFRICA REPORTERS (WAR) could not immediately reach Mr. Umar Kambaza, the  Kebbi state Commissioner of health for an explanation.
