President Bola Tinubu has said his administration is strongly committed to providing excellent healthcare facilities for all Nigerians and will continue to prioritize domestic and foreign direct investments in the sector.

The President said this at a meeting with the President and Chairman of the Board of Directors of the African Export-Import Bank (Afreximbank), Professor Benedict Oramah accompanied by a delegation from King’s College Hospital, London (KCH).

Tinubu welcomed the partnership between Afreximbank and KCH London to establish a first-rate healthcare facility in Abuja, called Africa Medical Centre of Excellence (AMCE), scheduled for completion in 2025.

”We welcome this significant step towards investing in Nigeria’s healthcare sector. This facility is a great commitment to humanity. We are open and ready to assist this project in every way possible.

”Africa is in need, and Nigeria is committed to the needs of its people. Putting people’s welfare first is putting healthcare first. The training and development of our people are our priorities, and we thank KCH, known for its global reputation, for partnering with us.

”Out of every five black persons, one is a Nigerian. We are racing against time to meet our obligations to our people. This project will further strengthen our long-term vision for the healthcare of our people. We are determined to succeed, and whatever you need in order for us to achieve this project, I want to assure you, we will do it,” he said.

The Nigerian-born President of the Bank, Professor Oramah, pledged the Bank’s commitment to developing quality health infrastructure on the continent, and contributing substantially to the reduction of medical tourism out of Africa, while promoting intra-Africa trade, and creating jobs in the country and continent.
