CMD Statement


It is my rare privilege to write a foreword to the website of Usmanu Danfodiyo University Teaching Hospital, Sokoto. In the last 2 years, the hospital has recorded tremendous growth in many areas of specialization such as Neurosurgery, Renal Dialysis, Reconstructive Urology, Radiology, Medical Library and the restructuring of ICT among others.

With the installation and commissioning of modern equipment under FGN/VAMED project by Mr. President Dr. Goodluck Jonathan Ebele GCFR in 2011, we witnessed corporate improvement in the quality of service delivery and patronage as well as expansion in the range of services offered at the hospital.

Areas covered by FGN/VAMED project includes: Dental and Maxillofacial Surgery, Radiology, Theater Sterilised Services, (TSSD), Pharmacy, Physiotherapy Department, Accident and Emergency Unit, EEG/ECG Room (Cardiology Lab), Intensive Care Unit, and Theater Complex.

In Human Resources Development, we have taken the promotion of all cadre of staff seriously and Deserving staff members have equally enjoyed the sponsorship to undergo different courses and up-dates. In-house training was equally organized for staff to respect our policy of training and returning. Our monthly public lecture meant to educate the hospital community and general public on relevant health issues has continued to attract more interest. Our gratitude goes to the Honorable Minister of Health Prof. Onyebuchi Chukwu who has been very supportive to the Hospital.

I wish also to thank the Hospital Board of Management for their positive leadership.

Management is also grateful to all staff of the hospital who have made effort to improve both the quality and quantity of services offered in the Hospital.

Dr. Yakubu Ahmed

Chief Medical Director
