Gombe State Governor Muhammad Inuwa Yahaya yesterday inaugurated a task force committee on the health sector. He alleged that his predecessors did not establish State Hospital Management Board.

He said Gombe was the only state in the country without such a board.

“Immediately after our inauguration, we went round some ministries and what we saw in specialist hospital is an eyesore and that was what prompted me to start with specialist hospital,” he said.

He said the committee was to review the operational framework on human resource for the health sector about the disposition of health workforce across all the tiers of the health system in the state.

According to him, the committee is also to suggest and implement immediate ways of bridging the health workforce gap in the state.

The committee, chaired by Prof. Usman Aliyu El-Nafaty, has Hajiya Zainab Idris Haruna, Permanent Secretary in the ministry, as  secretary.
