Any indigene of Kurmi LGA that has health challenge leading to operation is entitled for this free treatment. We pay all the bills. This development started since the inception of my administration up to date

“When I stepped out of this office, I want my people to remember that during my time in office, there was total peace in the LGA. I want them to acknowledge my efforts towards keeping the people of Kurmi in good health. My concern is that if you are not healthy, you can not do anything.

“You will also attest that Kurmi LGA is one of the most peaceful LGA in Taraba State. We are able to attain this feat basically because of collaboration. We ensure that the citizens are working in synergy with all the security agencies, stakeholders, traditional leaders, political and religious leaders and because of this good raport, the citizens are always ready to cooperate with security agencies in terms of giving out intelligent report on any criminal act

“The security agencies are also, always proactive when such intelligent reports are given. We also dwell alot on enlightenment and sensitisation. We let people know that insecurity is a joint responsibility, its never a one man business”. He stressed.
