Clinical Governance - 'Air Force Chief commissions giant oxygen plant in Yola' - Brilliant!!






Dear All,
As Commissioner for Health in Cross River State (2004-8), one of our greatest challenges was providing 24/7 oxygen supply to our facilities, especially after we established the integrated emergency
ambulance service and floated the ambulances. Oxygen came from Port Harcourt (PH) and could take up to two weeks to refill cylinders. We entrenched the practice of sending staff to go to PH so that we could refill supplies within 24 hours! As a result our team of advisers convinced former Governor Malam Isa Yuguda to establish an oxygen production plant in the ultra modern Bauchi Specialist Hospital before it was commissioned in April 2015 ( We pray that it was completed and is functional today)

We are excited therefore to share the news below.that the Nigerian Air Force is coming to the rescue – we hope that they can supply beyond the Airforce, at least to the health facilities in Adamawa state: READ ON

‎ ’ Air Force Chief commissions giant oxygen plant in Yola
By Kabiru R. Anwar,Yola | Publish Date: Jul 10 2017 7:37PM





  Chief of Air Staff, Air Marshal Sadiq Abubakar has commissioned an oxygen generating facility at the Air Force Base Yola.
Speaking at the event held on Monday,  the Air Force chief underscored the significance of liquid oxygen plant to the success of air operations in the North East.
He noted that apart from critical military application, the gas plant would produce oxygen for civilian purposes in  hospitals across Adamawa State.
"Oxygen is a critical requirement for survival of fighter pilots during high altitude operations. It is also an essential requirement at health facilities. Sometimes a lot of resources are expended in acquiring oxygen from as far places as Kaduna and Kano", he stated.
He noted that unavailability of oxygen sometimes hindered air operations, saying it was out of necessity that the present leadership of the Air Force deemed it necessary to set up the gas plant.
The giant mullti-purpose  plant has the capacity to produce oxygen and nitrogen at 99.7% and 99.9% respectively.
In his remark, Governor Muhammad Jibrilla commended the leadership of Nigerian Air Force for being innovative, saying the oxygen plant would no doubt benefit the people of the state. ’’
