The Minister of Information, Lai Mohammed, has said that the response of the Buhari administration to health emergencies in the country has been unprecedented.
Speaking at the commissioning of a hospital in Kwara state on Saturday, April 29. Mohammed said
“The basic healthcare provision fund is being operationalised to provide health care to poor and indigent Nigerians. We will ensure the availability of basic minimum package of health services. This will ensure that at least 100 million Nigerians will have health insurance coverage through public and private sources. The administration’s response to health emergencies has remained unprecedented particularly how we were able to contain the COVID-19 pandemic in the country. Worthy of note is that under this administration, Nigeria has been certified wild polio free.” he said
