AU COMMITTEE OF HEADS OF STATE APPOINTS PRESIDENT TINUBU AS AU CHAMPION FOR HUMAN RESOURCE                                                                 16-02-24

By Sadiq Aminu                                                       The Africa Union Committee of Heads of State has appointed President Tinubu as the AU Champion for Human Resource for Health in Africa and Community Health Delivery Partnership Development Council.

While explaining the importance of such appointment, the Minister of State for Health, Dr. Tunji Alausa, told newsmen in Addis Ababa that it was a great recognition of the President’s positive efforts in the sector.

In a statement, the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Chief Ajuri Ngelale, suggests that the President’s commitment to train 120,000 frontline health workers nationwide within 16 months is the basis for his appointment.

He says that President Tinubu has double the number of primary healthcare facilities in local government areas from 8,800 to 17,000 over the next three years.

He further explains that his doubling of health personnel enrollment capacity from accredited nursing and midwifery institutions to accommodate the new demand created by new facilities across Nigeria, was also recognised.

Chief Ajuri says other factors considered by the committee were the President’s resolve to establish a paid volunteer youth force of social accountability officers to monitor the operational functioning and financial integrity of primary healthcare centres.

According to the statement, President Tinubu will tomorrow address the Ministerial Executive Leadership Programme, MELP, on the margins of the 37th Ordinary Session of the Assembly of AU Heads of State and Government, under the theme, ‘Impactful Leadership in Health: a Whole Government Approach’.

The statement says the Tinubu Administration is attracting global investments in Nigeria’s health sector for the provision of cutting-edge infrastructure, equipment, and world-class manpower for improved access to quality healthcare.
