“A lot of Nigerians are not proud of our health system before the outbreak of coronavirus. Now that the disease has ravaged the global community and strained our decayed and neglected local facilities, there is need for concerted efforts to save the situation and I am optimistic our health system will be effective aftermath COVID-19,” he said.

He commended the Association for organising the training and urged them to replicate the knowledge acquired in their local communities.

The ASELGON President, Hon. Albert Asipa promised that members of the association would not relent in promoting issues of nation-building.
