Hardly will anyone write the history of the development and
advancement of Nursing Profession in Nigeria especially the northern
part without acknowledging the enormous contributions and supports of
Sen Rabi’u Musa Kwankwaso. Sen Kwankwaso is a former two-time Executive
Governor Of Kano State and a former Senator of the 8th National
Assembly. He also served as Defence Minister under President Olusegun
Obasanjo tenure. During his administration as governor of Kano State,
Kwankwaso sponsored several nurses with RN Diploma Certificates to
pursue their degrees in one of the Universities in Egypt. He further
established two additional Colleges of Nursing and Midwifery in the
State. One situated at his LGA of Madobi and the other one at Gwarzo
LGA. While serving as Senator in the 8th NASS Kwankwaso singlehandedly
sponsored a bill with the number SB.451. The title of the Bill is “AN
ACT TO AMEND NURSING AND MIDWIFERY (REGISTERATION ETC) ACT CAP N143 LAWS
OF THE FEDERATION OF NIGERIA 2004, TO RESTRUCTURE THE COMPOSITION OF
THE COUNCIL, QUALIFICATION AND TENURE OF THE OFFICE OF THE MEMBERS OF
THE COUNCIL, REVIEW PENALTY PROVISIONS, COMPOSITION OF THE TRIBUNAL,
BACHELOR OF NURSING SCIENCE AND COMMUNITY MIDWIVES IN THE REGISTRABLE
QUALIFICATIONS OF THE COUNCIL, GIVE THE COUNCIL TIMELINE WITHIN WHICH TO
COMPLETE INDEXING OF THE STUDENTS, REGISTER PROSPECTIVE MEMBERS, AND
THEM LICENSE AND COMMUNICATE THE DECISION OF THE COUNCIL TO INSTITUTIONS
THAT APPLY FOR APPROVAL AND OTHER RELATED MATTERS”. The Bill received
the First and Second Reading on the floor of the Senate on 22/03/2017
and 20/12/2017 respectively. Unfortunately the Bill stopped at the
Committee Level. The Bill will have ensured alot of reforms in Nursing
in Nigeria. We hope the Bill be passed one day. But it will take the
presence of personalities like Sen Kwankwaso at the National Assembly
(NASS) for the Bill to be amended and passed into law. To the amazement
of many individuals even out of office Sen. Kwankwaso didn’t back off in
his interest and desire to see the progress of Nursing Profession. The
distinguished former Senator started the construction and establishment
of the only private College of Nursing in Kano State to be commissioned
soon. So far the college has been said to be equipped with
state-of-the-art instruments and facilitaties. He situated the college
at his home town of Kwankwaso in Madobi LGA. The college is named
Nafisatu College of Nursing and Midwifery (NAFCONM), Kwankwaso. NAFCONM
will become the second private college of nursing in Northern Nigeria
and the only one in Kano State. What impresses so much about Sen
Kwankwaso is the choice of the 21st of October the day he will
celebrating his birthday to commission the College. Congratulations
and Happ birthday in advance distinguished Senator. Going through the
various contributions to Nursing by this politician, one will begin to
wonder why is this his special interest and passion on the development
of Nursing? For me, the reasons are not far-fetched. It is due to his
passion for an improved healthcare delivery system in Nigeria. Sen
Kwankwaso deserves commendation and encouragement from all stakeholders
in the Healthcare industry for his zeal and passion to see improvement
in healthcare delivery. Nursing Associations and bodies in the country
must rewards the selfless efforts of Sen Kwankwaso and motivate many
others. Nursing Profession is the bedrock of the healthcare industry.
For an effective healthcare delivery system in any nation the welfare
and working conditions of Nurses must be taken care of and improved. It
is in this regards that the World Health Organization (WHO) declared
2020 as Year of the Nurses. WHO has encouraged all countries of the
world to celebrate and appreciate the efforts of Nurses in promoting,
preventing and curing patients of all ages and backgrounds across the
globe. In conclusion, on my personal capacity and in recognition of
various contributions of Sen. Kwankwaso to Nursing Profession in Nigeria
I hereby him award this title: NIGERIAN NURSING AMBASSADOR.
