A Bill to establish Federal University Teaching Hospital lafia Sponsored by Senator Al-Makura, Umaru Tanko  (Nasarawa South  Senatorial District) has scaled second reading in the senate.
 The Bill which was read for the first time in 2020 apart from its establishment also provides for a Management Board for the Teaching Hospital sought to be established through this Bill.
The Hospital is intended to facilitate the clinical training of medical students that will be of internationally acceptable standards by the University.
The sponsor Senator Al Makura said the Federal University of Lafia ( FULAFIA) has already set a College of Medicine and has got the approval of the National Universities Commission to admit medical students in the 2020/2021 academic session. I
According to him in preparation for the take-off of the  Teaching Hospital which takes care of clinical training of medical students of the University, the Nasarawa State Government he said has donated a newly built Hospital in Lafia and also agreed to hand over the Dalhatu Specialist Hospital (DASH) to the University to be used as facilities for the take-off of the proposed Teaching Hospital in the interim.
 The essence of this Bill he continued is to provide the legal framework for the operation of the proposed Teaching Hospital for clinical training of medical students of the College of Medicine, Federal University, Lafia.
He explained that it is expected that the Teaching Hospital when established will not only serve as a training ground for medical students but also offer specialized tertiary healthcare services to patients within the State and indeed other patients referred to it from other parts of Nigeria. Similarly, bearing in mind that the few Teaching Hospitals and other tertiary health centres within the North Central Zones are already overwhelmed by referrals for tertiary healthcare services, the proposed Teaching Hospital when established would therefore complement specialized tertiary healthcare services offered by the few Teaching Hospitals within the North Central geopolitical zone such as the Jos University Teaching Hospital(JUTH).
The bill was supported by all senators who contributed during the debate. The bill will now go through a public hearing before a third presentation and possible passage
