Government needs to adequately fund the health sector – Former Minister
Former Minister of State for Health, Professor Debo Adeyemi says without proper funding of the health sector, accumulation of wealth and maintaining bogus foreign reserves by the country will amount to wastage.
Professor Adeyemi made the assertion while speaking with Radio Nigeria on tips for Nigerians to maintain healthy living this year.
The former minister stressed that all the primary, secondary and teaching hospitals in the country should be upgraded with state-of-the-art equipment to adequately carter for the medical needs of the citizenry.
According to him, citizens on their part should always visit hospitals without delay whenever they notice changes in their body systems, because of the prevalence of airborne communicable diseases that come with the dry season.
