Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha told lawmakers that nation’s health infrastructure is in bad state until he was appointed as the Chairman of Presidential Taskforce on COVID-19.
Boss Mustapha has Spent over four years as the Secretary to Government of Federation.
Speaking before the National Assembly Principal Officers, he said:
“I can tell you for sure, I never knew that our entire healthcare infrastructure was in bad state in which it is until I was appointed to do this work.”
He noted that the current pandemic has provided the opportunity to examine the state of the national health care systems which is in dire need of reforms and funding.
He added that the weaknesses in Nigeria’s health systems became more glaring given the way more established health systems in Europe and America collapsed under pressure.
He, however, assured that there are plans to lay a legacy foundation for the immediate, medium and long-term development of the health system in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic across the country.
