As we celebrate Nigeria's 63rd Independence Anniversary, let us renew our dedication to the values that define our nation. Today, we reflect on our struggles on the path to nation-building and celebrate the successes we have recorded over the years.
At the FMOH and SW, we are implementing President Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu’s promise of renewed hope for all of Nigeria through improved health outcomes.
We are determined to continue on our agenda of saving Nigerian lives; reducing physical and financial burdens, and producing health.
God Bless Nigeria!
HAPPY 63rd INDEPENDENCE ANNIVERSARY
Speech by the Honourable Coordinating Minister for Health & Social Welfare at a Press Briefing on the Renewed Hope for Nigeria’s Health and Social Welfare (FMOH & SW)
Good afternoon ladies and gentlemen of the Press and thank you so much for honouring our invitation to this maiden press briefing on a Saturday evening.
My name is Muhammad Ali Pate, and I am the Honourable Coordinating Minister for Health and Social Welfare and I’m joined by the Honourable Minister of State for Health and Social Welfare Dr Tunji Alausa.
I want to start by telling you a story. A sad story about two incidents that partly reflect the current state of Nigeria’s healthcare system.
