History and developmental strides

The BSUTH project started sometime in the year 2008 with the Management Board inaugurated on 27th August, 2008, by the then Executive Governor of Benue State, Rt. Hon. Dr. Gabriel Torwua Suswam, with Prof. Peter O. Obekpa as Chairman. The BSUTH Management which was also appointed had Prof. A. O. Malu as Chief Medical Director, while Dr. Priscilla Denen Akaa and Mr. Tavershima Akpe were the Chairman, Medical Advisory Committee and the Director of Administration respectively. Management had six staff seconded to the hospital from the civil service and three drivers who Management had employed. These were the staff that used to assist Management in keeping the administration of the hospital running at the beginning. Read more…
