The Minister of State for Health, Dr. Osagie Ehanire, has said during a reception organized over the weekend to congratulate him on his recent appointment as Minister of the Federal Republic of Nigeria that the Primary Healthcare Service in the country needs to be scaled up, so that the country can overcome the basic health challenges facing Nigerians.
The release from the Publicity Department of the Federal Ministry of Health on Monday December 7, 2015 indicated that the event was organized in his honor by members of the Edo/Delta Health Professionals and attended by professionals from the public and private health sectors. The Minister pledged his commitment to working amicably with all medical practitioners, maintaining that he would allow justice and fair play to be his watchword while discharging his duties in the Health Ministry.
