Gentlemen, leaders of delegations;
Dear people of Cuba:
His Excellency Umaru Tanko Almakura has lauded the Cuban Government for its firm stand on health related issues and expressed the readiness of Nasarawa State to partner Cuba in the areas of healthcare and agriculture.
Governor Almakura made this known when he received the Cuban Ambassador Carlos Trejo-Sosa who was in the state for a courtesy visit and discussions on various issues at the Government House Lafia.
Speaking on the healthcare collaboration the Governor stated it would have a more positive approach if a research and diagnostic laboratory is set up in Nasarawa State , saying that such an effort would go a long way in stemming the tide of Lasa fever among other diseases.
