In a resolute declaration, the coordinating Minister of State for Health and Social Welfare, Dr. Tunji Alausa affirms that the new era will centre around providing high-quality healthcare to Nigerians.

Alausa emphasised that sub-standard care is unacceptable and will not be tolerated under the administration of President Bola Tinubu. His statement came in response to post-operation complications experienced by six patients who underwent cataract surgeries at the National Eye Centre in Kaduna State.

Alausa articulated this commitment today (August 28, 2023) in Abuja. He underscored the government’s determination to ensure that citizens receive the finest possible healthcare services.

“It is, indeed, essential to provide citizens with the best possible healthcare services,” he remarked.

Earlier, the coordinating Minister of Health and Social Welfare, Prof. Ali Pate stressed that Nigerians deserve quality healthcare across all health facilities. He took immediate action by initiating an investigation into the cases of post-operation complications. Pate highlighted the Federal government’s strong emphasis on clinical governance to elevate the overall quality of healthcare in the country’s health system.

“A panel set up by the ministry will promptly investigate these six cases to thoroughly comprehend the specific incidents leading to the adverse events. It will identify systemic causes and ensure appropriate actions are taken, following due processes to ensure fairness,” Pate explained.

The investigative panel, composed of five members, including three consultant ophthalmologists and two representatives from the Federal Ministry of Health, will be headed by an external consultant ophthalmologist. This composition aims to ensure an impartial and comprehensive investigation.

Pate reiterated the government’s unwavering commitment to providing quality health services to all Nigerians, regardless of age, ethnicity, income or location. He stressed that enhancing the quality of health services is essential for rebuilding trust in the nation’s health institutions.

“Improving the quality of health services is paramount for rebuilding the people’s trust in our health institutions,” Pate stated emphatically.

The resolve to prioritise high-quality healthcare resonates with the government’s commitment to fostering a healthier and more prosperous future for all Nigerians.
