Sallah: NACHPN Rejoices With Muslims, Commends FG For Training Over 1,200 Health Workers

The President of National Association of Community Health Practitioners of Nigeria, NACHPN, Comrade Kabir Yahaya Ahmed has felicitated with Muslims nationwide on the occasion of this year’s Eid-el-Fitri celebration.

In his Sallah message in Abuja, Comrade Kabir Yahaya Ahmed also rejoiced with them for the successful completion of the one month Ramadan fast.

While urging them to sustain the lessons learnt during the holy month of Ramadan, the President of NACHPN admonished them to use the occasion of this year’s Eid-el-Fitri celebration in praying for Nigeria to overcome its economic and security challenges.

He used the opportunity to commend President Bola Tinubu and the Minister of Health, Professor Ali Pate for their interest in Primary Healthcare and their support to Community Health Practitioners towards ensuring quality service delivery in all Primary Healthcare Centres in the country.

“I also want to commend the Federal Ministry of Health for embarking on training of over one hundred and twenty thousand health workers in the country because this gesture will go a long way in ensuring that standards are set and followed particularly in the area of reaching out to universal health coverage ” He stated.

In his words” I equally appealed to the Inspector General of Police, IGP Kayode Egbetokun to assist in ensuring that most of the schools operating within the country are Institutions that have the accreditation to run Community Health Practitioners programmes because most of the Schools and Colleges of Health Technology today are running without having accreditation from the regulatory bodies therefore there’s absolutely need for the Security Apparatus of the country to ensure that those institutions are sanctioned “

According to him, NACHPN will continue to ensure professionalism among Community Health Practitioners towards enhancing the growth of the nation’s Primary Healthcare system in line with global best practices.

He therefore advised Community Health Practitioners to always compliment the efforts of President Bola Tinubu’s led administration towards achieving his renewed hope agenda for Nigerians in the area of health.
