I never knew Nigeria’s health care system was in a very bad state – Boss Mustapha

PublishedBy: in NewsApril 10, 2020


Nigeria’s Secretary to the government, Mr Boss Mustapha has said he never knew the healthcare system of the country was in a very bad state until the Coronavirus pandemic.

The SGF said his role as the chairman of the presidential task force on COVID-19 was an eye opener to the current state of Nigeria’s healthcare infrastructure.

Mustapha spoke when the task force met with the leadership of the national assembly in Abuja, the FCT on Thursday regarding the pandemic.

“I can tell you for sure, I never knew that our entire healthcare infrastructure was in the state in which it is util I was appointed to do this work,” he said.

The SGF noted if well countries are overwhelmed and struggling to contain the COVID-19, “then Nigeria needs to improve its own”.

My prayer is that Nigeria’s situation does not escalate to that extent because the country lacked what is required to handle the situation,” Mustapha added.

He then harped on the need for transparency and accountability in the management of the health crisis, saying that the task force will not be directly involved in the disbursement of cash donations for Coronavirus .

“The accountant-general of the federation has already published the account details for collection through some commercial banks and also provided the modalities for its utilisation.

“All the main COVID-19 accounts shall be domiciled in the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN). However, all non-cash donations shall be duly received by the PTF, acknowledged, documented and appropriately deployed”, he concluded
