President Bola Tinubu has earned accolades from the Association of Doctors Unite for Tinubu, both in the home country and diaspora, for the appointment of Dr. Iziaq Salako as Minister of State for Environment.

Salako was recently honoured by the association as its patron during a visit to his office in Abuja.

The national coordinator of the association, Dr. Christopher Enoch led the delegation and commended Tinubu for recognising Salako’s commendable achievements in the Ministry of Environment. The formal decoration of Salako as the patron of the association took place during this official visit.

Expressing his gratitude, Salako thanked Tinubu for the appointment and acknowledged his professional colleagues for the recognition. “I am happy and pleased to accept to be a Patron of our Professional body, and I assure you that my doors are open to ideas for national growth and development,” Salako stated.

The new junior minister pledged his support for President Tinubu’s ‘Renewed Hope’ agenda and described the association as one of the most responsible, responsive, selfless, skilful and trustworthy teams working for national cohesion and the development of mankind.

Highlighting the influence of medical doctors as opinion leaders, Salako urged his colleagues to use their influence to advance the ‘Renewed Hope’ agenda and the administration’s laudable policies and achievements. He commended President Tinubu’s commitment to the medical profession, citing his past initiatives, such as introducing laboratory coat allowances during his tenure as the executive governor of Lagos State.

Assuring the association of the ministry’s commitment to Tinubu’s mandate, Salako mentioned the six key priority areas related to the environment out of the eight points of the president’s economic agenda.

In his response, Enoch reiterated that the award was in recognition of Salako’s outstanding performance since his appointment as Minister of State for Environment. The association, registered as a support group of the ruling Party (APC) in 2020, requested that Salako become a patron, not only because he is a medical doctor but also due to his passion for promoting good governance, democratic values and his commitment to the environmental sector.

The association highlighted some of its activities, including general medical outreaches across the 36 states of the Federation and FCT, enlightenment campaigns on eradicating drug abuse and social vices, as well as health education and rape awareness. The national secretary, Dr. Abubakar Azare and other members were also present during the ceremony.
