Nigeria-Turkish hospital commissioned

20 February 2014, 20:07

Abuja - President Goodluck Jonathan has commissioned the Nigeria-Turkish Nizamiye Hospital in Abuja.

Speaking at the event, the President said the hospital represented another important landmark in the existing cordial relations between Nigeria and Turkey.

"Today's commissioning of the Nigeria-Turkish Nizamiye Hospital in Abuja, represents another important landmark in the existing cordial relations between Nigeria and Turkey. I am glad to note that our relationship is steadily growing into several facets of our national economy, including the education and health sectors," he said.

He said the hospital also demonstrated a concrete and commendable response to Government's clarion call for enhanced private sector participation in healthcare delivery in Nigeria, which is the bedrock of his administration's Transformation Agenda.

"Undoubtedly, Private Sector initiatives such as this hospital, will help Government's efforts to  halt the enormous capital flight arising from increased medical tourism, and the avoidable stress experienced by Nigerians on such missions. No doubt, the state-of-the-art medical
diagnostic equipment available at this hospital, will meet the needs of those who may have had to travel outside the country for such care," Jonathan added.

Jonathan said the determination of government was to ensure access to quality and affordable health care services to our citizens.

"In this regard, the role of the private sector in complementing government's effort is crucial."
