The First Lady of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Aisha Muhammadu Buhari has thanked all Nigerians for their prayers and well wishes while she was away for medical treatment in the United Arabs Emirates (UAE).
She says she is well now, fully recovered and had since returned back home, Nigeria.
The First Lady added that the Nigerian Airforce Flight encountered a violent clear air turbulence which was navigated safely and professionally by the Captain and crew of the Flight.
She seized the opportunity to commend and appreciate the courage and professionalism of the Captain and his crew, the wonderful gallant service men and women of the entire Nigerian Airforce for their dedication to duty and the quality of maintainance of its Fleet.
The first lady recalled hosting the private healthcare Providers earlier in the year saying they had a very productive engagement where the issue of building the capacity of Nigeria health sector was the major focus, and funding was discovered to be the major challenge.
She therefore called on the healthcare providers to take the advantage of the Federal Government’s initiative through the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN) guidelines for the operation of NGN100 Billion Credit Support for the Healthcare Sector as was released recently contained in a circular dated March 25, 2020 to the Commercial Banks. This will no doubt help in building and expanding the capacity of the Nigerian health sector and ultimately reduce medical trips and tourism outside the Country.
The First Lady thanked the nation’s frontline workers, and all Nigerians for their steadfast as Nigeria navigates the challenges facing the entire world.
