Nigerians Slam SGF Boss Mustapha Over Comment On Nigeria’s Healthcare System

Nigerians have taken to social media to slam the Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Boss Mustapha, for expressing shock at the poor state of Nigeria’s healthcare infrastructure.

During a meeting between the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19 and the leadership of the National Assembly in Abuja on Thursday, Mustapha said he never knew that health infrastructure was not in a bad state.

He said his role as the chairman of the presidential task force on COVID-19 afforded him the opportunity to see the current state of Nigeria’s healthcare system.

“I can tell you for sure, I never knew that our entire healthcare infrastructure was in the state in which it is until I was appointed to do this work,” the SGF said.

He said if developed countries are overwhelmed and struggling to contain the coronavirus, “then Nigeria needs to improve its own”.

“My prayer is that Nigeria’s situation does not escalate to that extent because the country lacked what is required to handle the situation,” he added.

However, his open admission has angered some Nigerians, with many wondering how such a high-ranking official did not know the state of the country’s healthcare system and other sectors.

Below are some reactions gathered exclusively by POLITICS NIGERIA:
