First baby Arrives as GYB Ultra modern Hospital, Gegu Beki Opens

The first baby delivered at the newly opened GYB Ultra Modern Hospital, Gegu Beki arrived yesterday, the 18th of January, 2024. The baby was received with excitement by both parents and staff at the hospital.

An elated Dr. Nuhu Ibrahim who is the Medical Director said the medical complex satisfies all the specifications for a District Hospital. He expressed satisfaction with the quality of equipment, medical personnel and other staff available at the hospital.

The Administration of Governor Yahaya Bello built the hospital from scratch and it is one of her legacy achievements. Residents say the hospital is a necessity long delayed in coming and thanked Governor Yahaya Bello for breaking the jinx.

They noted that siting the hospital at Gegu-Beki, a town roughly midway between Lokoja the Kogi State capital and Abaji where Abuja the Federal Capital Territory begins and where the nearest hospitals are means that it is strategically positioned to provide comprehensive trauma and emergency medical services to victims on a busy stretch of highway that is accident-endemic and has claimed many lives due to delay in medical attention. They also expressed joy that the facility will service the general medical needs of the local populace.

Gov Bello’s wife flags off 3-day medical outreach at newly inaugurated cottage clinic

. Distributes over 8,000 school items to primary, secondary students

. Students, school teachers, community members laud kind gestures

Following her recent reconstruction and the inauguration of a cottage clinic, through her pet project, Hayat Foundation, the Wife of Governor Yahaya Bello of Kogi State, Barr. Amina Oyiza Bello, on Tuesday, flagged off a three-day free medical outreach for Eika-Ohizenyi community in Okehi Local Government Area of the state.

The Foundation also distributed over 8, 000 educational items, including sandals, school uniforms, exercise books, writing materials and nursery play items to both primary and secondary school students.
.

Barr. Amina Bello noted that the foundation was poised to compliment efforts of the state government in rendering basic health care and quality educational services to individuals who lived in the remotest parts of the state and could be faced with minor medical issues as well as barriers of access to quality education.

The governor’s wife emphasised the need for those financially capable and in positions of authority to give back to the society and often think of ways through which others’ lives could be enhanced and made better.

She added that such people must be geared towards making impact on the people.

She acknowledged that being in the midst of her people provided the opportunity to listen directly to their plights, feel their pulse and be better positioned to ameliorate the hardship they might be facing.

The governor’s wife noted that the government of Kogi, under the leadership of Governor Bello, had demonstrated its interest in the health and education sectors of the state with the provision of relevant infrastructures and needed policies, while individuals could similarly add their quota.
.

She revealed that the cottage hospital in Eika-Ohizenyi, Okehi LGA, built in partnership with the World Bank, was the first among several other phases to emerge and that plans were already in the pipeline to replicate similar infrastructures even across the state in the very nearest future.

This, she said, would be with more focus on enhancing easy medical access to those at the local level, while she urged community members to take full advantage of this infrastructure and the medical personalities provided.

A member of the Hayat Foundation, Temitayo Gbela, hinted that the three-day free medical outreach was aimed at catering for the medical needs of over 300 people with a team comprising medical doctors, nurses, pharmacists and laboratory technicians.

The traditional ruler of the community who also was a beneficiary of the medical outreach, HRH Yusuf Isah Adoke, Oba-Oniya of Eika, asserted that such gesture would go a very long way to help the people have access to medical care at zero cost.
.

Another beneficiary and community member, Mr. Adava Abdulhakeem, expressed immense gratitude to the wife of the governor, for giving back to her locality and showing concern to their wellbeing.

Similarly, Hajia Hajara Usman another community member, thanked God almighty for giving the Wife of the governor the enablement to bring such medical program to their community, noting that they were so proud to call her one of theirs.

She prayed for more of God’s blessings, noting that although the community was not expecting the cottage hospital, but immediately it was inaugurated, they had begun to make the most of the facility.

In her visit to Al-Adabiyyah Group of schools, Eika Ohizenyi, Okehi LGA, where Hayat Foundation gave out educational materials to the students and gifts to the teachers, the governor’s wife urged the students to show kindness to their parents, siblings and fellow students.
.

She added that they must be good ambassadors of the school and their community as it was her desire that they would scale greater heights.

Students who received the kind gesture from the governor’s wife through her foundation expressed their gratitude for her benevolence.

Speaking on their behalf, the Head Boy of the school, Yakubu Abubakar, said the students were excited with their school’s new look, other benefits like the planned road rehabilitation, enlistment in SUBEB, their promised school bus and the educational materials given to them by the wife of the governor.

He added that many of the students would be better inspired to learn as the suitable environment and the materials needed had been provided.

The School’s Head Teacher, Mr. Lawal Ochiji Abdullahi, corroborated that within the short period of the inauguration of their school building, they had registered a large number of new intakes, indicating that many more unschooled children within the community and close neighbours would be interested in giving education a chance.

He pointed out that such a remarkable feat was made possible by the kind gesture of the Governor’s wife through her foundation.

GOVERNOR BELLO COMMENDS HAYAT FOUNDATION FOR COMMUNITY DEVELOPMENT INITIATIVE

Kogi State Governor, His Excellency Yahaya Bello, CON, expressed his heartfelt appreciation on Monday, particularly recognizing the initiator and founder of the Hayat Foundation, Barrister Amina Oyiza Bello, for her exceptional dedication in spearheading the reconstruction of a fully equipped clinic and school for the Eika-Ohizenyi community in Okehi Local Government Area.
.

Governor Bello officially inaugurated these significant projects, which were funded through his wife’s pet project, the Hayat Foundation. During this occasion, he challenged other privileged citizens, urging them to contribute their resources, regardless of the amount, to advance the development of their communities.

These noteworthy projects were unveiled to celebrate the 16th birthday of the Governor’s son, Hayatula Bello, in whose name the Hayat Foundation was established.

At the inaugural ceremony for the Eika-Ohizenyi community clinic and the Al-Dabiya Primary and Secondary School, both situated within the community, Governor Bello specifically praised the vision of the school’s founders. Initially conceived and operated as an Islamic school, it later expanded its offerings to encompass both Islamic and Western education.
.

In recognition of his wife’s efforts to improve the living conditions of her people through these initiatives, the Governor disclosed that the school would benefit from the State Government’s free education policy, which covers primary and secondary school students. Furthermore, the administration would assign teachers to address the school’s staffing needs and oversee the construction of an access road. Additionally, a school bus would be provided to facilitate academic activities.

Barrister Amina Bello, the Governor’s wife and founder of the Hayat Foundation, characterized these projects as a heartfelt homecoming for her. She emphasized that the clinic would offer three days of free medical care to community residents.

Barrister Bello encouraged Eika Ohizenyi community members to take advantage of the free Medical Outreach scheduled between Tuesday, September 26, and Thursday, September 28. She reassured the community that there were an ample number of medical professionals, pharmacists, nurses, medications, and consumables available for the three-day medical outreach which will address the immediate health needs of the people.
.

In her impassioned speech about her mission, Barrister Bello stressed the significance of her mantra, which revolves around making a positive impact on society. She praised the selflessness of her late mother-in-law and underscored the importance of individuals, regardless of their wealth or political affiliation, contributing positively to humanity, society, and their communities.

Barrister Amina Bello also extended recognition to Mallam Shittu, the founder of Al-Dabiya Primary and Secondary School, who arrived in the community in 1985. He established the school with a strong emphasis on religion and morals to positively influence the local youth. She further acknowledged Mallam Salihu Bello for introducing a western curriculum into the school’s teaching methods to prevent extremism. After the loss of the school’s original building, Hayat Foundation was honored to provide support for the construction of a new facility according to Barrister Bello.
.

Barr Amina Bello however, appealed to well-meaning individuals to give back to their communities. She emphasized that this contribution could manifest in various ways, including mentorship and other forms of community service, to collectively make society a better place for everyone.
