The Katsina State government has ordered 34 units of Peugeot Partner long ambulances to enhance medical service delivery in the 34 local government areas of the state.
The order was made when Governor Ibrahim Shehu Shema received the Executive Management team of PAN Nigeria Limited during a courtesy call in Katsina, a statement by PAN spokesman, Musa Bashir, said.
The governor, in his address, said apart from urban and rural development, his administration places high priority on qualitative health care delivery, education, in addition to youth empowerment and development.
According to the governor, the state government will soon go into partnership with PAN Nigeria in the area of auto capacity building for youths in the state, currently undergoing training in auto related fields at the Katsina Youth Craft Village.
He said the training will further broaden their scope and expose them to latest technology in auto mechanic, mechatronics and body work and paint work. Governor Shema also added that the youth will have the opportunity of being accredited by a world class automotive company.
The governor commended the new efforts of the Executive Management of PAN in marketing the product nationwide saying, “for one to survive in this competitive marketing world, one has to fashion a strategy for wining.”
