Govt explores better primary healthcare for Nigerians | The Guardian Nigeria News – Nigeria and World News — Nigeria – Guardian Nigeria

Federal Government has commenced implementation of Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) it had with Southwest traditional leaders on primary healthcare delivery to improve the well being of the people.
Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Enitan Ogunwusi II, has pledged commitment of the traditional leaders to impact primary healthcare initiatives in communities, especially in South West.
He appealed to parents to vaccinate their children against childhood diseases.
Speaking at the maiden quarterly meeting of the South West Traditional Leaders Committee on Primary Health Care Delivery (SWTLC) and National Primary Healthcare Development Agency (NPHCDA), yesterday, in Abuja, the monarch submitted that the primary healthcare system “is the basis for any good health system and without a formidable health arrangement and structure, there is no basis for anything.”
He said: “We are using this formidable platform provided by the NPHCDA to come together as traditional rulers to contribute own quota to development. We don’t want to leave everything to government. We have our traditional role to take care of our people and this is important. We should look beyond thinking that everything is government, rather, we should begin to think about things we can do ourselves, how we can actually help as far as primary health is concerned, how things can move better in our communities. So far, so good, the MoU is good, and we are not just talking, but also working the talk.”
