The Federal Executive Council (FEC) has approved N62 billion for the construction of Kano – Gwarzo – Dayi road, a major road that links Kano and Katsina states.

The Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, disclosed this to State House correspondents at the end of the FEC meeting.  President Muhammadu Buhari presided over the meeting at the Council Chamber of the State House, Abuja.

The Minister of Health, Dr. Osagie Ehanire, was also at the briefing.

Fashola said :

“The Ministry of Works and Housing presented one memorandum for the construction of Kano – Gwarzo -Dayi road. It was approved for N62.7 billion, to be executed in 24 months.”

On his part, Ehanire said the council approved the introduction of platonic medical records. The council also approved management for the National Health Insurance Scheme (NHIS).

He said the platform would help manage payments and claims. It would also facilitate health records of patients to enhance transparency and accountability.

The minister said :

“The ministry of health presented a memo on behalf of the National Health Insurance Scheme. This is to introduce platonic medical records and management in a concept known as e-NHIS. Meanwhile, it would create an electronic governance platform.

“This will allow interoperability with all other stakeholders including particularly the State Health Insurance Schemes. It would also accommodate Health Management Organisations, and hospitals, who offer services to patients.

“This will be a platform for managing payments and claims and also patient records to install transparency and accountability.

“This is necessary because the basic healthcare provision fund is going onstream. In the meantime, it will include a large number of people being registered. This would be so that we move away from paper to electronic management.” is an authoritative car blog in Nigeria.
