Tinubu reiterates commitment to effective healthcare services

President Bola Tinubu says his administration is strongly committed to providing excellent healthcare facilities for all Nigerians.

He added that the administration would also continue to prioritise domestic and foreign direct investments in the sector.

The President said this at a meeting with Prof. Benedict Oramah, President and Chairman of the Board of Directors of the African Export-Import Bank (Afreximbank).

Chief Ajuri Ngelale, Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, said in a statement that Oramah was accompanied by a delegation from King’s College Hospital, London (KCH).

Tinubu welcomed the partnership between Afreximbank and KCH London to establish a first-rate healthcare facility in Abuja, called Africa Medical Centre of Excellence (AMCE), scheduled for completion in 2025.

”We welcome this significant step towards investing in Nigeria’s healthcare sector. This facility is a great commitment to humanity. We are open and ready to assist this project in every way possible.

”Africa is in need, and Nigeria is committed to the need of its people. Putting people’s welfare first is putting healthcare first. The training and development of our people are our priorities.

”Out of every five black persons, one is a Nigerian. We are racing against time to meet our obligations to our people. This project will further strengthen our long-term vision for the healthcare of our people.

“We are determined to succeed, and whatever you need in order for us to achieve this project, I want to assure you, we will do it,” he said.

Tinubu was recently appointed the African Union (AU) Champion for Human Resources for Health and Community Health Delivery Partnership.

The President emphasised that the continent cannot afford to remain behind in the quality and accessibility of its healthcare system.

He, therefore, asked Afreximbank not to relent in its commitment.
