COVID-19: Nwosu urges Buhari to expand Humanitarian Affairs Ministry

All Progressives Congress (APC) Chieftain, Uche Nwosu, has called on President Muhammadu Buhari, to expand the Ministry of Humanitarian

He said that though the Minister has done creditably well, the Ministry can better accomplish its mandate at this time by having additional hand to support the Minister.Nwosu maintained that the creation of the additional office will speed up the delivery of the Federal Government palliatives to cushion the effect of the corronavirus pandemic.

According to him, the need to have the office of Minister of State in the Humanitarian and Disaster Management Ministry became imperative to meet the growing humanitarian needs occasioned by the outbreak of the COVID-19 and avert possible humanitarian crisis.

He said: “I want to commend President Muhammadu Buhari for rising up to the occasion which no doubt has mitigated the spread of the virus and the country. But the Coronavirus pandemic has thrown up humanitarian issues that need to be tackled with equal zest and commitment.

“Naturally, the Ministry of Humanitarian Affairs comes handy at this time and the Minister, Sadiya Farouk has done very well in managing the humanitarian challenges but the Ministry will deliver better if she is assisted, so there is urgent and compelling need to have a junior Minister that will facilitate what the substantive Minister is

doing. The task is enormous and can be best handled when another competent hand is engaged”.Nwosu however lauded the Buhari-led Federal Government for rising up to the occasion in the management of the Coronavirus pandemic.He observed that the President has provided leadership at a very trying period, which helped in galvanising Nigerians to stave off the pandemic to the amazement of many who thought that the country will be overwhelmed, adding “many countries didn’t expect that Nigeria will stand strong against this virus giving the status of our healthcare system but the country has been stirred by astute leadership to rise up to the needs of the time”.

According to Nwosu, Buhari has shown that he can pilot the country out of this crisis and should be supported and not distracted by the few that would want to politicize the situation.The APC stalwart however cautioned against hate speeches and enjoined Nigerians to eschew all forms of hatred and bitterness and come together to combat the pandemic.

Nwosu also commended Imo Governor, Hope Uzodinma for taking proactive measures to protect the state from the Coronavirus.According to him, the governor has done well by transforming one of the health facilities built and equipped by wife of the former governor, Nneoma Okorcha, the Wellness Centre into an isolation and treatment centre with states of the art equipments.

Apart from expanding it, a competent minister should man it. In addition, transparency and accountability must be sacrosanct.

Decide what you want to do with Rohr, Nwosu tells NFFFormer international, Henry Nwosu, has advised the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) to sack Gernot Rohr if his services are no longer needed instead of giving him stringent conditions that would force him to quit the Super Eagles. No football at the moment. Rohr can should wait . If his contract ends now, then let Pinnick be sacked. He is best since Clemens Westerhof And he is definitely leading Nigeria to another level
