The UNICEF Country Representative, Mr Peter Hawkins, while speaking during the inauguration of the South West Traditional Leaders’ Committee on Primary Health Care Delivery set up by the Federal Ministry of Health in collaboration with National Primary Health Care Development Board urged the government to do more and make healthcare services available and accessible to the citizens.

The suit is coming in the wake of the controversy over Buhari’s travel to London for a “routine” medical check-up at a time the country’s resident doctors are on strike over unpaid salaries, upward review of hazard allowances, and COVID-19 care incentives, leaving millions of poor Nigerians without access to medical treatment.

The ceremony was attended by the Minister of Health,  Dr Osagie Ehanire; the Director-General of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control, Dr. Chikwe Ihekweazu and  Executive Director and Chief Executive Officer of the National Primary Health Care Development Agency, Faisal Shuaib, who organised the ceremony.
