Healthcare In Nigeria: The Need For Competent And Committed Leadership

The neglect on the health sector is one of the contributing factors to why the people are suffering in Nigeria. Successive Nigerian leaderships, mainly at the federal level, hardly take serious interest in the nation's health sector, and it is quite worrisome.

Our machinery of government does fail to understand that this very sector has key roles to play towards the progress of our national development and must therefore be given top priority considerations, not only in the number of budgetary allocations but also in the overall interest and demands of the medical personnel. The health sector is the life wire of other sectors of our national economy.

The Labour Party, LP Presidential Candidate for the 2023 general elections, HE Mr. Peter Obi, and his running mate, Dr. Yusuf Datti Baba-Ahmed, are reputed to recognize the undeniable facts that good health is an essential ingredient for the stability of our country as it does have severe social and economic implications on the people in particular and the society in general. And the citizens, irrespective of tribe and religion, have the absolute right to good health care systems. This is because a good healthcare system gives way to sustained growth and productivity on the path of national progression.

Hence, while reigning as the governor of his home state, HE Obi tried the much he could to offer repositioning to every health facility in Anambra. He took top priority in developing the health sector to the extent that the outer world beamed their searchlight to his painstaking efforts of ensuring better health and well-being of the citizenry. The recognition of his huge efforts towards ensuring the eradication of poverty vis-a-vis achieving sustainable developments was cemented with an award of a one million dollar bill from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. 

Today, a cross-section of our medical practitioners under the auspices of DoctorsForPeterObi are among the many groups of supporters that are rooting for an overwhelming success of Obi-Datti's candidacy in the February 25th, 2023 polls. They are doing so because they recognized this sacrosanct fact that the LP presidential flag bearer used the one million dollar grant from Bill and Melinda Gates, adding his own matching funds to it, to build 10 health care centers in 10 remotest parts of Anambra State.

Our healthcare specialists, who have often decried the annual meager budgetary allocations to their sector, recognized that the former senator of Kaduna North and Vice Presidential Candidate of LP used constituency funds to cater to the health and general well-being of his constituents. Therefore, Obi-Datti is firmly trusted as the most competent and capable leader we need to elect in the upcoming election for the restoration of our lost pride in health care.

To be very sincere, the former governor and LP presidential flag bearer whose administration rebuilt, repositioned, and fully equipped hospitals and health facilities across his dear home state in the drive to meet the Millennium Development Goals, MDGs of the United Nations will utilize this enviably positive experience and competence of leadership acumen towards reshaping, repositioning and fully equipping the ever neglected health sector.

With the vision and focus derived from the current Sustainable Development Goals of the same United Nations, HE Mr. Obi's administration will work with developing countries and development partners to help strengthen our healthcare system so as to ensure that critical services, medicines, and interventions reached the most vulnerable families and the remotest communities across all states of the federation. 

Believe me; the Obi-Datti administration will give a huge face-lift to this vital sector. Yes, under their watch, the existing health facilities that have always been an eyesore will be restored to the status of world-class. The brain drain that has hit hard on this very sector is going to become a thing of the past with the administration of Peter Obi and Yusuf Datti Baba-Ahmed in Aso Rock. Yes, it's PO-ssible, and DATTI's the truth we must accept!
