Abdul Samad Rabiu Begins Construction of 30-Bed Hospital in Bauchi

Abdul Samad Rabiu, a Nigerian billionaire known for his philanthropic efforts through the Abdul Samad Rabiu Africa Initiative (ASR Africa), has begun construction of a new 30-bed hospital dedicated to the Nigerian Customs Service (NCS) in Bauchi State, located in Nigeria’s North-East geopolitical zone.

The groundbreaking ceremony took place at the NCS Command headquarters in Bauchi State, marking the start of the latest program funded by the Abdul Samad Rabiu Africa program (ASR Africa) with a N10 billion ($6.5 million) security sector support grant.

This grant will help Nigerian security services better fulfill their missions to the Nigerian people.

This cutting-edge medical facility, valued at N500 million ($0.32 million), is an extraordinary donation to the NCS.

Adewale Adeniyi, Comptroller General of the Nigeria Customs Service, conveyed his heartfelt gratitude to Abdul Samad Rabiu, Chairman of ASR Africa and BUA Group, one of Africa’s fastest-growing manufacturing and industrial conglomerates.

Adeniyi reaffirmed his commitment to sending appropriate medical personnel once the hospital is completed.

Ubon Udoh, Managing Director of ASR Africa, emphasized Rabiu’s commitment to implementing assurances made to Nigerian security authorities. He affirmed the continuous interaction with all grant beneficiaries to ensure project implementation meets their individual needs, and he praised the NCS leadership for collaborating with ASR Africa on this endeavor.

ASR Africa was founded in 2021 by Rabiu and has swiftly acquired attention for its outstanding humanitarian endeavors. The program prioritizes investments in education, healthcare, and social development to achieve long-term transformation throughout Africa.

This hospital building follows Rabiu’s December 2022 announcement of a N10 billion ($6.49 million) donation to improve Nigeria’s security infrastructure. The Security Sector Support Grant also assists Nigeria’s Navy, Air Force, Army, and different paramilitary formations.

ASR Africa has began building of a world-class research facility for the Federal University Lokoja in Kogi State, showcasing the initiative’s broad scope of projects.
