Dr Abdullahi Umar Ganduje, the governor of Kano state mourns with the family, Kano and Medical professionals over the demise of Dr Shehi Ali Abubakar, Consultant Radiologist with Aminu Kano Teaching Hospital, who passed away yesterday Thursday, in United States of America.
Dr Abubakar was one of the selected few Doctors who worked assiduously for the realisation of Kano Ultra-Modern Specialists Hospitals of Muhammadu Buhari Specialist Hospital, Giginyu and Sheikh Isyaka Rabi'u Paediatric Hospital, Zoo Road.
Himself alongside other Medical experts were in the Committee that developed the global standard framework for the establishment of these hospitals. He never missed any meetings during the committee's work. Which signified his unrelenting commitment to his profession, who worked tirelessly for human development.
A graduate of MBBS from University of Maiduguri, in 2001, who left a wife, a Medical Doctor also, with two kids, Dr Abubakar's demise is a great loss to Kano, AKTH, and Medical profession. He was a committed, disciplined and down-to-earth Medical Doctor, whose understanding and belief in global best practices took him to many heights.
On behalf of the government and people of Kano state, governor Ganduje prays for Dr Abubakar's eternal rest, condoles with the family, friends, people of Kano state and Medical community and prays Allah to give all, fortitude to bear the great loss.
