Kano, Nigeria: Kano State is on the brink of a significant healthcare enhancement with the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama’at Nigeria ready to unveil a new hospital.

Situated off the Kano-Maiduguri Road, the hospital’s foundation stone was laid by Emir Aminu Ado Bayero in July 2021. The ceremony was graced by the presence of Alhaji Abdul-Azeez Alatoye, Amir of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama’at Nigeria, and the then-State Commissioner for Health. The inauguration is expected to be a gathering of dignitaries, including other traditional rulers from the Emir’s domain. Alhaji Alatoye and other leaders of the Ahmadiyya Muslim community will also attend the event.

The inauguration will see a host of dignitaries, including Kano State government officials, leaders of state and federal government agencies, and representatives from various security agencies like the police, NDLEA, and the Federal Road Safety Corps.

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama’at has been a pillar in the Nigerian healthcare sector for over six decades, starting with its first hospital in Apapa in the late 1950s and another in Kano in 1962. These institutions have been instrumental in serving the healthcare needs of people in Lagos, Kano, and beyond. The new Kano Hospital is a continuation of this legacy.

During the foundation laying in 2021, the Emir of Kano lauded the Ahmadiyya Muslim community for their significant contributions to health and education in Nigeria and globally. The late Malam Aminu Kano, a former Federal Commissioner for Telecommunication, also praised the Ahmadiyya Mission in 1967 for their humanitarian, religious, and educational efforts in Nigeria.

The Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama’at has established hospitals in several Nigerian states, including Niger, Lagos, and Ogun. Plans are in motion to expand their healthcare footprint to the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja, with land acquisitions in Gwagwalada, Central Business District, and along the Keffi-Abuja Expressway.

The inauguration of this new hospital in Kano is a testament to the Ahmadiyya Muslim Jama’at’s dedication to enhancing healthcare accessibility and quality in Nigeria, underscoring their commitment to serving humanity and bolstering the nation’s health sector.
