The Secretary to the Government of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Mr. Boss Mustapha, on Monday revealed that the Nigerian health sector would improve massively after the COVID-19 pandemic ends.
Mustapha, who doubles as the Chairman of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19, said the aftermath of the pandemic would bring about a total overhaul of the health sector.
He further disclosed that the Task Force is open to criticism from Nigerians in a bid to curb the spread of the pandemic.
“I believe after COVID-19, Nigeria will not be the same again as there will be provision of infrastructure that was hitherto neglected.”
“We have always accommodated criticism, but any criticism without suggestion on the solution is not constructive. Nobody can predict the attitude of COVID-19; it is an unprecedented global pandemic,” he added.
He also commended private organizations, religious bodies, government agencies and NGOs that had responded through donation and palliatives, saying that the national response has been topnotch.
