Some communities in Misau Local Government Area of Bauchi state say they use donkeys and ox-drawn trucks to transport expectant women and sick people to hospitals due to lack of motorable roads. The communities disclosed this on Wednesday when a News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) correspondent visited Babuwuri and Ngummachame settlements, which are tagged: “Hard-To-Reach (HTR)” in terms of healthcare by the EU/ UNICEF. Heads of the settlements, Malam Magaji Abdu and Alhaji Ahmadu Garba, disclosed that the only means of transporting pregnant women and sick ones to health facilities were donkeys and oxdrawn trucks. Abdu said: “This is due to the hard to reach nature of our settlements coupled with the lack of road networks and distance from health facilities. “If a woman develops obstructed labour or any delivery complications as well as sick ones who cannot be conveyed on motorcycles, the last option is to use either donkeys or ox-drawn trucks.
