The Speaker of House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, has inaugurated an ad-hoc committee on Covid-19 to support and ensure that Presidential Taskforce operates in line with international best practice.

Inaugurating the 18-man committee at the National Assembly on Tuesday, Gbajabiamila said, the committee’s role is to add value by serving as a link between the Presidential Task Force on Covid-19 and the National Assembly, “and with the Nigerian people whose interests we all serve, and to whom we are all answerable”.

He said the engagement with the executive arm of government would also serve the best interests of the Nigerian people joining hands to confront and conquer the most severe challenge of the Nigerian’s lives.

“It’s also your responsibility to ensure that those our citizens; doctors, nurses and all the health workers on the frontlines of the fight against Covid-19 in Nigeria receive the full protection they deserve, and the benefits they have so honourably earned,” he said.

“You have the rare opportunity to write your legacy in gold, and I am confident that you will meet that opportunity. I urge you to face this responsibility with a sense of urgency and the utmost integrity, rest assured of my support and the support of the entire House of Representatives,” he added.
