The World Health Organisation has dedicated this year’s  World Health Day to the Nursing Profession with a theme, “ Support Nurses and Midwives,” in view of their critical role in the battle against the raging covid-19  pandemic.
The Minister in a statement issued by his Special Adviser on Media, Nwachukwu Obidiwe, said that the account of the battle on Covid-19 would be incomplete without the gallant roles of the healthcare professionals -doctors, nurses/midwives, Lab Tech and Allied  Health Professionals.
 According to him, “ They are the bulwark, the frontline soldiers in the war against the enemy – the coronavirus and its attendant disease condition -Covid-19.”
He recalled that the circumstances in which the Nurses and Midwives operate to save lives, expose them to numerous health hazards and in some cases, death and noted the appropriateness of the theme of this year’s celebration.
He further paid tributes to the efforts of the members of the union in fighting the pandemic in Nigeria, urging them not to relent in the various battles of the war, especially in the epicentre of the pandemic in Lagos FCT and other states of the federation.
Ngige assured them of the continued support of the Federal Government and prayed to God to protect them.
