The Sokoto State Governor, Alhaji Aminu Tambuwal, Saturday urged women in the state to always take their children to the hospital for routine immunisation.

The governor made the plea at the inauguration of a General Hospital in Silame Local Government area, rehabilitated and upgraded by the state government at the cost of N286 million.

Tambuwal reminded the Silame community of the need for them to always allow their pregnant wives to go for antenatal care at the hospital.

“I am appealing to you to use this facility judiciously, visit hospitals, allow your wives to attend antenatal as well as ensure that your children are fully immunised,” he said.

He pointed out that government expended huge sum of money in upgrading the hospital, hence the need for judicious utilisation of facilities put in place for the benefit of the society.
