The Chief Medical Director (CMD) of Plateau state specialist hospital Jos, Professor Christopher Yilgwan has attracted a water project (a motorized borehole) to the hospital from a Non Governmental Organization (NGO) known as Transfer of Appropriate Technology and Sustainable Expertise (TASTE).
The CMD, while speaking to Viewpoint Nigeria correspondent noted that acute shortage of water supply occasioned by dysfunctional boreholes and the erratic nature of the services of waterboard is one of the major problems he met on ground on assumption of office as the hospital’s chief medical director.
According to him, he had to immediately look for a significant solution to this particular problem; hence the move to use his network and connections to get things done to better the state of things in the hospital.
Yilgwan reported that the NGO, Transfer of Appropriate Technology and Sustainable Expertise (TASTE), out of the mutual respect and relationship he shares with them, undertook to execute the water project free of charge.
As at the time of filing in this report, drilling and laying of pipes were being successfully completed; it is expected that in the coming weeks, the entire project would have been set for commissioning.
