Nigeria: Delta Teaching Hospital Will Commence Kidney Transplant Soon - Uduaghan

Gov. Emmanuel Uduaghan of Delta on Monday said that the state University Teaching Hospital (DELSUTH) Oghara, would soon commence kidney transplant.

Uduaghan disclosed this in Asaba, while receiving a delegation of the Nigeria Medical Association (NMA) led by its President, Dr Osahon Enabulele, on a courtesy visit.

He said that the state government and management of the hospital were collaborating with a university in Texas, U.S in that regard.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the visit was part of the activities marking the seven-day 1st National Health Summit organised by NMA in Asaba.

The governor said that the provision of world class facilities and expertise at the teaching hospital by his administration would end the quest by Nigerians for medical treatment abroad.
