President Muhammadu Buhari said on Thursday the Federal Government would increase investment in the health sector so that the country can halt the loss of well trained professionals to other countries.
He made the promise while receiving members of the executive committee of Medical and Dental Consultants Association of Nigeria (MDCAN) at State House, Abuja.
The President, according to a statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, applauded the group’s concern on the state of the nation’s health sector.
He said: “We will do our best to work on your recommendations and increase investment in the health sector.”
The President of MDCAN, Prof. Ngim E. Ngim, said the association consists of trainers, researchers, leaders and major stakeholders in healthcare, who are concerned about the wellbeing of the sector.
