Pay attention to health sector, UniAbuja medical consultant urges govt

- By Idowu Isamotu

A medical consultant and doctor of Obstetrics and Gynaecolog­y in the University of Abuja Teaching Hospital (UATH), Dr Richard Effiong, yesterday advised the federal government to pay greater attention to Nigeria’s health sector.

This, he said, would increase productivi­ty among human resources that are drivers of the nation’s economy and boost other sectors in the country.

Offiong stated this in an interview with journalist­s on the sideline of a send forth/ valedictor­y programme organised in his honour by

UATH management.

“I would say that it is important for the government to recognise the importance of health because indeed there are a lot of competing needs in the nation and all of these require finances which are not abundant,” he said.
