President Bola Tinubu has reiterated his commitment towards ensuring the improvement in the healthcare system in Nigeria.
He made the call during his opening remark at the 2023 Cabinet Retreat for Ministers, Presidential Aides, Permanent Secretaries, and Top Government Functionaries.
The event was held at the banquet hall at the Presidential Villa.
The president who also spoke about taking out 50 million people out of poverty urged his appointees to be good citizens by ensuring the healthcare system and education work in Nigeria.
“Let us look forward. Let us be determined that corruption will go, progress will be achieved, better wages for our workers, and living wages.
“We will transform the economy to work for millions of our citizens. We must take 50 million people out of poverty. We must build healthcare that works for all. Look around.
“Don’t be wicked. Look at the standard of education, look at the classrooms, and look at the roads. We can only spend the money, we will find it, we can not spend the people.
“No crime in borrowing. Thank you, World Bank, for being a lending friend. But let your achievement be homegrown. The determination that Nigeria can do it is here.
“If it had not started six months ago, we are here to switch off the light, make you included, and make all Nigerians included. Our path for tomorrow is charted for our children and grandchildren. Don’t be selfish about it.
Last Tuesday, the federal government launched the immunisation programme for 7.7 million girls against the Human Papillomavirus (HPV), which is the largest number of girls in Africa to receive the vaccine in a single round.
