Kano Govt Shuts 26 Illegal Private Health Institutes

26 private health training institutions have been closed by the Kano State Ministry of Health due to a lack of certification and rules governing their creation and operation.

Hadiza Namadi, the ministry’s spokeswoman, issued a statement on behalf of the organization on Friday in Kano, expressing worry over the state’s high number of unlawful schools.

The institutes, according to Mrs. Namadi, lack distinct locations, provide dubious programs that go against the established course curriculum, and they also charge outrageous rates.

She highlighted some of the institutions that were impacted, including Sir Sanusi and Aminu Ado Bayero College of Health Sciences and Technology, Unity and Utopia College of Health Sciences and Technology, and others.

“This unwanted trend is at the detriment of the people, educational development and efficiency of the entire health system in the state and the country at large,” she said.

She said that the concerned institutions would be closed immediately while she awaited the results of the authorities’ inquiries.

The spokesperson added exhorted the populace to only patronize properly registered institutions and certified programs.

“The ministry will cooperate with all stakeholders to ensure regular monitoring and inspection of the Health Training Institutions (HTIs) across the state for sanity and safety,” she said.
