Senate President Godswill Akpabio says the national assembly will ensure that every Nigerian has access to quality healthcare.

Akpabio spoke in Abuja on Wednesday at a public hearing organised by the senate committee on health (secondary and tertiary).

The hearing was organised on a bill seeking to establish the Federal Orthopaedic Hospital, Toro, Bauchi state (amendment) bill, 2024, and the National Eye Centre Doma, Nasarawa state (establishment) bill, 2024.

Represented by Osita Ngwu, senator representing Enugu west, the senate president said lawmakers have the responsibility to shape the future of the country’s healthcare delivery.


“We must ensure that every Nigerian has access to the care he needs when he needs it,” Akpabio said.

“By supporting these bills, we are fulfilling our constitutional mandate and demonstrating our dedication to the health and welfare of our people.

“By this public hearing, I am reminded of our immense responsibility as lawmakers to shape the future of healthcare in Nigeria.


“The bills before us are not just pieces of legislation; rather, they are the building blocks upon which we will build a stronger, more resilient healthcare sector that can meet the needs of our people.

“These bills, sponsored by distinguished colleagues of this senate, are a testament to their foresight, passion, and unwavering commitment to the well-being of our citizens.

“The introduction of legislation to develop and manage our health care infrastructure is a crucial step toward bridging this gap and bringing our health care systems into the 21st century.”
