Speaking during the signing of the contract, the executive secretary of the Kaduna State Primary Healthcare Development Agency, Dr Hadiza Balarabe, said in partnership with the UK Department for International Development (DFID), a total of 34 primary healthcare centers in 21 local government areas have now received these solar systems.

Balarabe, explained that the operation and maintenance plan will feature remote monitoring, a fault alert messaging service, training and a 24 hours maximum response time for system failures.
She said by establishing an operation and management plan for the solar systems, the administration of governor Nasir El-Rufai, is not only protecting investment in public assets but also ushering in a culture of maintenance for sustained improvement in public service delivery.
