The Edo State Governor, Godwin Obaseki, and the Minister of Health, Dr Osagie Ehanire, have called for more Public-Private Partnerships (PPPs) in the healthcare system with a view to guaranteeing quality and efficient healthcare service to the citizenry.

The duo made the call at a dinner organized for members of the Association of Nigerian Physicians in America (ANPA) who are in Edo on a one-week medical mission.

Speaking on the exercise, Gov Obaseki said over 5,000 Edo residents had benefitted from the free surgical intervention and treatments for heart, kidney, eye and other ailments.

He said, “We have received the fundamental benefit of hope, as you gave renewed life to Edo people during the free treatment. You also engaged in capacity building as you interchanged skills and made your colleagues here locally improve their knowledge. 

“You have fulfilled your call of service to humanity as the team restored lives during this mission by providing free medical service.”

On his part, Ehanire lamented that Nigeria was suffering from brain drain because medical personnel were leaving to practice abroad.
