Governor Yahaya Bello has stated that doctors will be treated with golden gloves if he becomes president.
The Kogi State Governor has not hidden his desire to rule Nigeria come 2023, even though he is still the Governor of his home State.
He said this through his Special Assistant on Youths and Students, Ahmadu Jibril, on Saturday who represented him at the Nigerian Medical Students’ Association (NIMSA) International Health Summit 2021 at the Baze University in Abuja.
“For any country to function, three sectors are very key; One is the health sector, second is the education sector and third is the security sector.
“As a governor, he has been able to manage COVID-19 pandemic in a very miraculous way that we did not die as it was assumed it will be.
“As a governor he has been able to construct three ultra-modern hospitals, as a governor he is working on establishing the largest diagnostics Center in Nigeria, in West Africa.
“If as a governor he has improved and increased the salaries and wages of our medical doctors in the State, how much more should we expect if he answers the clarion call of Nigerians.
“My governor has identified the three cardinal ways we can improve on the quality of health of the nation.
“One is the manpower, I stand bold to say that Kogi is one of the states paying Medical Doctors’ salaries in the country.
“Secondly, is infrastructure. My governor out of his love and passion for the healthcare sector, has established three ultramodern hospitals, we call it reference hospitals across the three senatorial districts.
“And the insurance policies that enables civil servants enjoy medical services. These are part of the things we have been enjoying in Kogi State,” Mr Bello said.
