Tony Elumelu heads committee to establish world class hospitals

The federal government has announced plans to establish world class hospitals and diagnostic centres in Nigeria as part of efforts to ensure that quality medical care is made available to all Nigerians.

The Minister of Health, Professor Onyebuchi Chukwu announced this in Abuja on Tuesday while inaugurating the Ministerial Committee for the unlocking of the private sector potential to establish world class hospitals and diagnostic centres in Nigeria.

The Minister acknowledged that “government alone cannot provide all the health facilities needed to provide adequate healthcare services to all Nigerians.”

The chairman of the 21-member committee, the former Managing Director UBA, Mr Tony Elumelu, in his response, promised to ensure that the associated failure to provide quality medical services is addressed in order to curtail the increasing cases of persons seeking medical treatment outside the country.

    GOOD ONE. BUT NOT ALL IN ABUJA

    This is a brilliant initiative. My prayer is that the Committee is given the necessary empowerment to ensure the proper implementation of the strategy and blueprint they eventually produce. Nigerians have the intellect and know what needs to be done, the problems most times is in the implementation. Mr Elumelu has demonstrated the capacity and ability of the private sector to drive development in Nigeria. He is an example of the successes of the private sector and his ability to turn things around in the banking industry and now with a conglomerate, Transcorp. I wish the Committee well, and pray that they are able to come up with solutions that will change health care services in Nigeria, by ensuring the availability and accessibility of this vital service to all in Nigeria.

    Hogwash! Yet another job for the boys. What in the world makes this chairman the right and intelligent pick for this job in a country with idle capacity in the troubled industry. Simply incredulous.

      Lol, Being a banker and all, he might be able to negotiate cheaper deals for the medical equipment. Thats the only reason i can think of.

        Hope you can feel the strain in the case you have attemped to make. The country deserves so much better than the hand it is being dealt by its ‘leaders’ every step of the way.
