Eid-el-Kabir: Kano Health Commissioner Harps on Meat Hygiene

As Eid-el-Kabir festivity is being celebrated everywhere across the globe, Muslims have been reminded of the imperativeness of ensuring that their sacrificial meat is hygienically kept under good condition of health.

The call was made by the Kano State Commissioner of Health, Dr. Abubakar Labaran Yusuf in his Sallah message issued from the Public Relations Unit of the ministry and made available to the men of the press.

The Commissioner advised that the meat has to be properly cooked and fried, kept in clean and tidy containers as well and stored where fly and its likes couldn’t get access to contaminate it, assuring that by so doing the meat would be protected against those insects that may cause havoc to the health as a result.

He also urged people to properly dispose off the animals’ feaces soonest after slaughter in designated places, and the place be washed thoroughly with enough water and detergent so that the stained-blood and odour get nowhere to stay.

Dr. Labaran emphasized that people should avoid consuming excessive and hot meat as it may harm the stomach, adding that any sign of ailment should henceforth be reported to the nearest health facility for medical attention.

The Commissioner then noted with satisfaction of the excellent performance of Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf in one year despite distractions and obstacles encountered with, yet he develops a strong heart and continued with people oriented projects and programmes, which is an indication of him being a true democrat prepared to shoulder the task.

His words, “The leadership style of His Excellency is admiring and superb. He is turning affairs of the state around. Without contradiction, our Governor is fulfilling his campaign promises. With all sense of humility, we are moving around with full courage that Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf is delivering.

“On behalf of my family, the ministry and its agencies, wish to extend my warmest Sallah felicitations to His Excellency, Alhaji Abba Kabir Yusuf, his family, members of the State Executive Council, leadership of our great party, the NNPP, the NNPP leadership of Gwale local government and the entire people of Kano state of the tranquil Sallah jollities.
