Prof. Adeyeye who made this statement during an interview on Channels TV Saturday attributed the coronavirus pandemic as a catalyst for investment into the nation’s health sector, after decades of neglect.

She stated, “I see a brighter future for Nigeria because COVID-19 woke up us from our comatose state as a country,”.

“Before COVID-19, we had huge problems and COVID-19 kind of opened the Pandora box for us, because we were over-dependent.

“The health sector was neglected for decades. And what the Buhari administration is doing right now is phenomenal. Because it is something to know that neglect took place, it is another thing to start finding excuses.

“The current administration has now committed a lot of money to the health sector, from the primary health sector to the tertiary, to pharmaceutical companies, to researchers” she noted.
