Ex-NMA President Asks General Buhari To Improve The Health Sector

Former president of the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA), Dr Osahon Enabulele, has called on the president-elect, General Muhammadu Buhari, to improve the health sector and the fundamental health rights of Nigerians.

In a congratulatory message to the president-elect in Lagos yesterday, he advised him to ensure strict implementation of the National Health Act of 2014.

Enabulele, who is the Vice-President, Commonwealth Medical Association, West African region, urged Buhari to ensure an institution of globally competitive wages for medical doctors and health professionals backed with a robust and dynamic health human resource development plan.

"The West African region of the Commonwealth Medical Association congratulates all Nigerians for the successful conduct of the presidential and National Assembly elections.

"We call on Buhari to sustain the tidal wave of expectations and legitimate aspirations of the long toiling people of Nigeria.

"We expect the president-elect and his team to work hard and restore public confidence in governance through institution of an all-inclusive and participatory government.

"We call on all Nigerians to support the incoming administration to enable it to keep faith with its promises to Nigerians," he said.

Enabulele, according the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), also commended President Goodluck Jonathan and the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) for transparent, free and credible elections.

"We hail the uncommon display of statesmanship and humility by Jonathan in courageously accepting defeat and by so doing, stabilising the Nigerian polity and averting any post-election crisis.

"We are convinced that by his exemplary gesture, he has enthroned a progressive democratic political culture in Nigeria," he said.
