To set the ball rolling in his quest to continue with the provision of democracy dividends to his constituents, Senator Binos Dauda Yaroe, Senator representing Adamawa Southern Senatorial Zone, has embarked on a four-day free medical outreach aimed at improving and enhancing the wellbeing of his constituents.
Just two months after his re-election to the 10th National Assembly, the People’s Senator wasted no time in meeting the plights of the people of Adamawa South in his renowned and famous health service crusade.
The flagging off of the free medical outreach, which was held at General Hospital Ganye on Monday, had attracted benefitting patients from every nook and cranny of Ganye Chiefdom and beyond who received various medical services free-of-charge.
Addressing the mammoth crowd at the flagging off ceremony, Senator Binos Yaroe pointed out that the latest Outreach is the 12th he embarked upon since he assumed office in May 29th, 2019 aimed at rendering free medical services to his constituents.
According to the lawmaker, though the pattern of the free medical outreach would not be the same as he did during his first tenure of four years, but he would do everything within his ability to ensure his constituents get free medical services at their doorsteps.
Senator Binos said that he was elected to serve and to be served, hence he would ensure the people of Adamawa South taste the sweet fruits of democracy dividends.
He noted that his constituents should expect more of dividends of democracy as measures have been put in place to empower people in various skills and trades, adding that health service delivery would go hand-in-hand with other provision of good governance and effective representation for the benefit of his people and for the betterment of his constituency.
The Adamawa South Senator said that he is committed and determined to enhance the educational status in his constituency, hence he saw the need to sponsor some bills for the establishment of some tartary institutions in Adamawa Southern Senatorial District.
In his words, “Even before now, I sponsored bills for the establishment of tartary institutions in Numan and Guyuk LGAs. But you know the Executive is the final say. But I will not relent in pushing further for such bills to scale through.
“We want equality in this country. It does not speak well of government for a senatorial zone that comprises 9 LGAs without a single tartary institution. For the Federal Government to render effective democracy dividends, it must prioritize equality in its policies and programmes”.
While appreciating the unflinching support of Governor Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri in ensuring the free medical outreach is successful, Senator Binos thanked Ganye Local Government Council, Ganye Traditional Council and the people of Ganye LGA as a whole for the support being given to him at the recently conducted 2023 General Elections.
In his remarks, the Team Lead Consultant, Dr Wycliffe Dah, pointed out that in the history of Nigeria, Senator Binos Yaroe is the only politician that embarked on free medical outreaches twelve times.
He said that dental, eye problems, surgeries of various ailments, consultations and other medical services would be rendered for free during the four-day outreach.
Dr Dah drew the attention of beneficiaries to the fact that every health service to be rendered is for free, hence they should not yield to any demands of either money or favour from anybody who wants to sabotage the exercise.
According to the medical expert, medical personnel came from 12 States of the Federation including Abuja for the purpose of the outreach, hence people should expect quality healthcare service delivery.
Also speaking, the Principal Medical Officer (PMO), General Hospital Ganye, Dr Jacob Zamani, who also spoke on behalf of the Adamawa State Health Services Management Board, commended Senator Binos Yaroe for embarking on a project that reaches the masses and the vulnerable in the society.
He appreciated the efforts of the Fintiri-led Administration in improving the Health Sector in the state, noting that the staff of the general hospital would be committed and supportive to Binos Medical Team towards effective health service delivery.
The PMO General Hospital Ganye called on the sick residents of Ganye LGA and the inhabitants of the rural communities within and outside Ganye to take advantage of the free medical outreach and avail themselves in order to be treated free-of-charge.
Earlier in his welcome address, the Chairman of Ganye Local Government Council (LGC), Hon. Jibrin Ali, thanked Senator Binos Yaroe for seeing the need to re-visit Ganye for another round of free medical outreach for the wellbeing of the people within and outside Ganye LGA.
Represented by the Chief of Staff (CoS), Ganye Local Government Council (LGC), Mrs Baiwo Wawu, the Ganye Council boss said that one good thing about Binos Free Medical Outreach is that all people benefit irrespective of religion, tribe or political party.
He commended Senator Binos for his commitment and determination to improving the wellbeing of his constituents.
While thanking Governor Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri for providing the needed dividends of democracy to the people of the state, he called on all hands to be deck to supporting the Fintiri-led Administration to enable it serve the masses better.
Senator Binos Yaroe paid homage to Gangwari Ganye at his palace, where he appreciated the Royal Father for his consent to embark on the medical outreach in his domain.
He told the traditional leader that he was in his palace to seek for fatherly blessings and to thank him and the people of his domain for their love and support during the 2023 General Elections.
