Senate President, Ahmad Lawan has come out to blast Osagie Ehanire and Olorunimbe Mamora, minister of state for health, over their absence at a national summit on COVID-19 in Abuja.

He recently revealed this via a speech today, and Nigerians have been reacting.

According to him, he is very dissappointed over the non-attendance of a top official from the health ministry after being told that ministry’s permanent secretary was also absent.

Lawan added that somebody should’ve replaced the Minister of Health because the federal ministry of health is supposed to be present to garner all the resources that will come out of such meetings.

His words, “Before I begin my remarks, is the permanent secretary ministry of health here? Well, I asked that question because the two ministers of health are not here.”

“The minister of health, the minister of state, and the permanent secretary are not here. I believe this is not good.”

“He (Ehanire) just left but somebody should have replaced him. Because everything we do here, the federal ministry of health is supposed to be here to garner all the resources that will come out of this.”

“The PSC is simply an interventionist outfit. And as politicians and political leaders, we are supposed to be very serious and committed about the health of our people.”

“The emergence of the Omicron variant of the virus points to the fact that the pandemic is yet to be over, hence, we should not rest our oars in fighting the pandemic.”

“However, our recent experience has also shown that outbreak of diseases affects not only the health sector but also the social – economic sector of the nation. To this end, there is a need for a continuous multisectoral approach that integrates multiple work plans and collaboration to establish a sustainable bio security framework for Nigeria.”

“As we are working towards ending the pandemic and building back a better Nigeria, an all inclusive approach which focuses on addressing issues relating to the economy, health, housing, social security, infrastructure, etc. should be employed.”
