Daju charged the new CMDs to work hand in hand with the health workers and stakeholders as a team and explore all necessary opportunities to provide a conducive work environment and infrastructures in order to achieve a high standard of health care in the country.

According to her, “it may be challenging but there is no challenge that is insurmountable and your appointment is an indication of the confidence that the federal government reposed on you.”

She urged them to bring to bear, their skills and wealth of experience which they acquired over the years in their various health facilities, adding that their performance would determine the continuation of discontinuation of their tenure.

Daju assured that the Ministry will provide necessary support to enable them meet the hospital standard, and that the Ministry will organise induction training for the newly appointed MDs in the coming weeks.

“We will do our best to improve the lot of our people, to justify the confidence reposed in us by the President and the Ministry. We will put in what it takes to move the health care system in our facilities going forward; we will not rest, we will move along with the vision of Mr. President, and make sure that our people receive the best. We will not disappoint you.”
