The Nigerian Communication Commission has donated 110 laptop computers to the staff of College of Nursing and Midwifery Science, Sokoto, the State Commissioner for health, Ahmed Aliyu has said.
Ahmed, while presenting the computer on behalf of NCC said the devices would aid the staff of the college to be efficient in discharging their statutory duties towards providing qualitative health care in the state.
According to him, “The laptops will also help the staff in their classroom teaching as they would be better updated on developments in global principles of teaching and learning processes in the health sector.”
The commissioner noted state government’s effort towards improving the health sector, citing the award of contract for the construction of another midwifery institute in Tambuwal local government of the State.
Ahmed recalled that in 2010, the college was upgraded to a degree awarding institution while additional 40 academic staff members were employed in the areas of special need, just as others were sent on courses outside Nigeria by the state government.
He said the state government had also approved the construction of additional classrooms and library as well as utility vehicles. Ahmed maintained that investment in the health sector had led to a decline in infant mortality in the state.
