" I want to commend and appreciate the courage and professionalism of the Captain and his crew, the wonderful gallant service men and women of the entire Nigerian Airforce for their dedication to duty and the quality of maintainance of its Fleet.

" I recall hosting the private healthcare Providers earlier in the year and we had a very productive engagement where the issue of building the capacity of Nigeria health sector was the major focus,  and funding was discovered to be the major challenge.

Aisha also called on health workers to use a federal government program which has been out in place to support the health care sector.
She said,

" I therefore call on the healthcare providers to take the advantage of the Federal Government’s initiative through the Central Bank of Nigeria  (CBN) guidelines for the operation of NGN100 Billion Credit Support for the Healthcare Sector as was released recently contained in a circular dated March 25, 2020 to the Commercial Banks.

" This will no doubt help in building and expanding the capacity of the Nigerian health sector and ultimately reduce medical trips and tourism outside the Country.

" Once again, I thank our frontline workers, and all Nigerians for their steadfast as we navigate the challenges facing the entire world."
