Nigerian Government Declares State of Emergency in the Health Sector 

The Federal Government has declared a state of emergency in Nigeria’s health sector.

The Coordinating Minister for Health and Social Welfare Dr Muhammed Ali Pate says the nation’s health facilities are in bad shape, adding that there is a need for an urgent intervention.

The governor of Ekiti state Mr Biodun Oyebanji says the state received with great excitement the offer to host the 64th National Council on Health and the prospect of having all the distinguished delegates from across the nation including international stakeholders in health policy development in the state for this agenda setting council meeting.

He says the shortage of personnel, medical equipment, drugs, and qualified personnel among others, has led to a hike in the death toll in health facilities in the country.
