Waje urges federal government to fix health sector
On Thursday, Nigerian singer, Aituaje Iruobe a.k.a Waje has asked the Federal Government to make investments in the growth of the nation’s health sector.
The singer expressed her concern over the terrible state of Nigeria’s healthcare systems.
In response to a recent assessment on the appalling situation of primary healthcare in all 36 states and the Federal Capital Territory, she expressed outrage.
The country’s subpar healthcare system is to blame for the deaths of countless pregnant mothers, the singer expressed sadness.
“I have visited Primary Healthcare facilities and was shocked by the state of facilities and equipment.
I have witnessed the impact of poor health services on the lives of ordinary Nigerians; I have met families who lost mothers and wives during childbirth, shared in their grief, cried with them, and mourned with them.
I cannot, in good conscience, experience all that and not raise my voice to advocate for improvement. Millions of Nigerians are dying because they can’t get basic health care. This needs to be fixed as soon as possible.”
She invited Nigerians to visit http://sphcn.ng/ to read the health report, learn more about the state of primary healthcare there, and use the information to push their governments for improved healthcare.
