Sule pointed.
In his welcome address, the chairman, Karu local government area, Mr Samuel Akala, said the empowerment and commissioning of the ultra-modern primary health care centres was borne out of his administrative determination to complement the efforts of the federal and state governments at empowering the people and providing basic amenities for their wellbeing.
