Kano state governor, Dr. Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, has signed into law the state Contributory Health Care Agency Bill 2016.
During a short ceremony over the weekend , the governor said history has been made as the development is a fulfillment of one of his inaugural promises to better the living conditions of civil servants.
The Contributory Health Care is a scheme that, among other things, facilitates payment for medical and surgical expenses incurred by civil servants in the state. It will be included in their benefit packages as a means of motivating them.
He stated that as the scheme is being implemented, private sector workers would also be incorporated.
