The Chief Judge of Adamawa State, Justice Nathan Musa has charged elites in Hong local government area to contribute their quota towards the development of various communities across the local government area.
Justice Musa gave the charge Monday, while unveiling a ten-bed Maternity Clinic at Anguwan Hausawa Hong and three classroom blocks at Kwabaktina Primary School Hong personally built by the former member representing Hong constituency in the State House of Assembly, Hon. Hassan Mamman Barguma.
“You have done what God is happy with and humanity will ever thank you. We are dedicating this edifice to the glory of God and for the benefit of humanity.
“I’m excited with this gesture of the former members who used their resources and gave it back to the community, elites in the area should emulate the former lawmaker, gone are the days when people waited for the government to provide them with everything.
“Elites of Hong local government area should use their positions and resources towards assisting people and communities in all spheres of human endeavors for development to thrive across the local government area,” Justice Musa said.
In his welcome address, Alhaji Ibrahim Gaji explained that the projects are part of numerous projects executed by the former lawmaker across Hong constituency.
In his speech, the chairman of the occasion and former State Minister of Health, Doctor Aliyu Idi Hong urged women in the community to patronize the maternity ward and cautioned residents to guard the facilities judiciously to enable it to withstand the taste of time.
“Women should avail themselves with the opportunity and patronize the clinic for their antenatal and other health care services, while husbands should ensure that their wives deliver in hospitals.
“It will be a disservice to the community to pilfer any item from the clinic, which will affect the whole system,” he said.
In his remark, the donor and former lawmaker, Hassan Mamman Barguma said the facilities were part of promises he made during the electioneering campaign in 2018 to cater for the health needs of pregnant mothers in the area.
“Despite losing an election, has not deter me from fulfilling my pledge to complete the clinic which will serve communities of Anguwan Hausawa, Wurdole, Kwalebula, Kwabaktuna and other surrounding communities.
“Committee and Trustees were set up for proper management of the hospital and I urged elites we should always take back to the communities the little we have, because we continue to depend on government standards of education that will continue to fall and health care will deteriorate.” He said.
On the block of classrooms, Hon. Barguma said the effort is to create a conducive learning environment and leave a legacy in his alma mater.
Among others that spoke at the event included the guest speaker Doctor Dauda Belel, District Head of Hong, Alhaji Umar Babangida Mahmoud who harps on the need to emulate the donor for the benefit of humanity.
The maternity hospital equipped with modern facilities including Ultra scanning machine and the classrooms was handed over to the community and the school authority.
