FCT Plans to Upgrade General Hospitals to World Standards by May

In a bid to provide effective healthcare services to the people, the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) has revealed plans to upgrade three general hospitals to meet world standards.

The Minister of FCT, Nyesom Wike, made this announcement during a chat with journalists in Abuja on Tuesday.

The hospitals set to undergo the upgrades include Gwarinpa general hospital, Utako general hospital, and Gwagwalada general hospital.

Wike expressed his concerns about the current state of these hospitals, stating that they are in a deplorable condition and unfit for service. Stating, “These hospitals are not up to global standards. In fact, from the report I got, one of the hospitals not only lacks modern equipment but has also collapsed,” Wike stated.

He further emphasised the urgency of the upgrades, aiming to have them completed before May 29, 2024.

In addition to the healthcare sector, Wike also mentioned that efforts are also ongoing on improving education in the FCT. The government plans to build and upgrade 20 schools in the territory to ensure quality education for the younger generation.
