Share

The Secretary-General to the Government of the Federation, Boss Mustapha lamented over the poor state of the Nigerian healthcare infrastructure. 

Boss Mustapha is also the chairman of the Presidential Taskforce (PTF) on COVID-19, said – during a meeting with the leadership of the National Assembly – that;

“I can tell you for sure, I never knew that our entire healthcare infrastructure was in the state in which it is. Until I was appointed to do this work,” he said.

He, however, stated that; “The Accountant-General of the Federation has already published the account details for collection through some commercial banks and also provided the modalities for its utilisation.

“All the main COVID-19 accounts shall be domiciled in the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN). However, all non-cash donations shall be duly received by the PTF, acknowledged, documented and appropriately deployed.”

The Chairman – Boss Mustapha – assured that there are plans to lay a legacy foundation for the immediate, medium and long-term development of the health system in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic across the country.

Mr Mustapha added that for transparency and accountability, the task force will not be directly involved in the collection and disbursement of the cash donations for COVID-19.
