President Muhammadu Buhari has come out to say that Nigerian doctors deserve every support they get.

He recently revealed this at the 61st Annual General Conference and Annual Delegates meeting of the Nigerian Medical Association held in Jos, Plateau State.

According to him, he can only commend the resilience of Nigerian medical doctors despite the country’s current fragile healthcare system.

He added that his government will keep working towards rehabilitating the healthcare sector to deliver a health system that is responsive to the needs of Nigerians.

His words, “We employed more than 412 Doctors and other Health workers into the Plateau state health sector to boost the capacity of the system to respond to the needs of the people in both rural and urban areas.”

“We shall continue to employ more, especially as we complete the new hospitals under construction.”

“Aside from signing into law, the Bill establishing Plateau State Specialist Hospital, we have continued to upgrade its facilities. At the moment, we are about to acquire another upgrade with state-of-the-art medical facilities such as CT Scan, MRI, and Digital X-ray.”
