Hold Political Leaders Accountable As Regards Health Systems- ACOMIN

As the 2023 general election draws closer, the Civil Society in Malaria Control, Immunization, and Nutrition (ACOMIN) has charged the media to hold political leaders accountable as regards the health systems.

The Senior Operations Manager, ACOMIN, Mrs. Fatima Kolo Abdullahi gave the charge in Abuja, at the National Advocacy Focused Media meeting.

Mrs. Abdullahi who also urged political leaders to get their healthcare from government health facilities said this would develop and strengthen Nigeria’s health system.

”Encourage the populace to fully participate in the forthcoming presidential elections and not sell their votes, but vote for candidates who have demonstrated commitment to improving Nigeria’s health sector both with their track records and manifestos.”

She said there was a need for the media to advocate for the government at all levels to make health a priority by increasing their budgetary allocations for health.

While analyzing the level of malaria control in Nigeria, the Senior Operations Manager agreed that had been commendable and growing commitments at community and state levels to help strengthen health systems which contributed to the elimination of malaria.

”ACOMIN has succeeded in facilitating the exercise of political commitment to health on the Global Fund Community-led Monitoring project in the last three years.”

”By working with various stakeholders across the spectrum of private, public, political, and community office; ACOMIN has achieved noteworthy successes and contributed to mitigating several issues confronting the health sector in the communities where the project is being implemented. ”

On his part, the Program Manager, ACOMIN, Mr. Martin Mary-Falana called for more mass media contributions towards Nigeria’s goal of eliminating malaria.
