The Nigeria Medical Association (NMA) on Saturday in Abuja honoured Borno State Governor, Babagana Umara Zulum.

The National President of NMA, Dr Uche Ojinmah, at a dinner/award to mark the closing session of the 2023 National Executive Council (NEC) meeting, said Zulum was being honoured for his meaningful contributions to the health sector development in Borno State.

He said that the governor had been able to uplift the health sector to a level where citizens would be encouraged to take numerous advantages in the health sector to solve their health challenges.

Ojinmah encouraged the governor, who was represented at the event by the Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Mr Bukar Tijani, to continue with his good work in the health sector in Borno.

He urged the governor not to be distracted by people he referred to as enemies of progress.

Responding, the governor appreciated NMA for finding him worthy to receive such an award of excellence, adding that it would encourage him to do more.

“The NMA has made several assessments according to what they have seen, it seems to them that the governor has passed the criteria by giving priority to the health sector, providing all the necessary tools and equipment to doctors across the board in Borno.

“I think the NMA has seen that the governor deserved to take the merit award; the NMA has done this based on performance and support given to the health sector.

“The driving force is determination to see that citizens enjoy the best, both in the primary, secondary and tertiary health facilities; this award is a confirmation to continue with the good work in the health sector,” Zulum said.
