I want to use this opportunity to appeal to the Federal Government to come up with a programme that will transform and have direct impact in the life of Nigerians, particularly in the health sector.
Having said this, I want to propose a free comprehensive healthcare plan for young children between zero and five years, and then for the aged from 65 years and above.
If this is done, it will improve the health of these groups of Nigerians who need special health attention.
I want to specifically say it would benefit retirees. It is not uncommon to find many retirees developing one ailment or the other upon their discharge from service. Therefore, if there is a health plan for them, it will prolong their lives, so that they can enjoy their retirement in good health.
