The Minister also urged Qatar Charity to set up a hospital in Abuja to cater for the well-being of the increasing population in the Territory.

“Come and set up a hospital in Abuja because Abuja is growing and now has almost over six million people and also we need more investment in healthcare. We already have investments from Nigerian companies, from companies in Europe and also a few other places.

“We can arrange to go into partnership to establish a hospital by Qatar Charity in a good location so that it can provide medical services for the people”.

Malam Bello also urged Qatar Charity to establish its African headquarters in Nigeria, preferably Abuja.

“I think Nigeria should be the best place to host your head office we have a population of over 200 million people and you can see the people are very friendly, they are very accommodating and also we have a lot between our two countries that we can do together. So, these are some of the things that I think when you discuss at the headquarters, it is good for you to consider”.
