Describing the President’s commitment to enhancing Nigeria’s health sector, Anas explained, “President Bola Tinubu is troubled by the ‘japa syndrome’ that we inherited from previous administrations for obvious reasons.
“Part of our commitment is that we want to reverse that ugly trend and ensure that we sustain and retain our medical experts within the country through several interventions and measures.
“Part of the efforts is the motivation of our health sector workers within Nigeria, not only through regular payment of salaries and allowances but also in terms of provision of conducive working environment. We will do this through the provision of state-of-the-art medical facilities at all levels especially the primary level of healthcare.”
She further added that the government is dedicated to producing more health workers in all fields.
Addressing the gathering, Bassey Bassey, the National President of the Association of Medical Laboratory of Nigeria, outlined measures being taken to combat quackery in the health sector.
The association, in collaboration with other partners, has closed down numerous unregistered laboratories to minimize incorrect diagnoses and other illicit activities in the country.
The laboratory scientists also highlighted plans to commence the local production of essential medical items and equipment in Nigeria.
