Nigeria's President Buhari Approves N8.9 Billion For Hazard Allowance To Health Workers...

Mr Boss Mustapha,the Chairman, Presidential Task Force (PTF) on COVID-19 and Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), disclosed this at the PTF briefing on Thursday in Abuja.

Mustapha also stated that in addition to this, the procurement of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for hospitals and isolation centres would be given priority.

The chairman also admitted diffusion in registration for passengers coming into Nigeria.

He said, “the PTF is aware of and working with our partners to speedily resolve the teething challenges faced by intending travellers in accessing the portal, the costs of the test on arrival, inability to complete payment online and consequential inability to board.

“We therefore apologise to everyone that had experienced these challenges using the platform.

“We assure all Nigerians and visitors to Nigeria that the PTF is working across multi-layer stakeholder platforms to ease the bottlenecks.

“​Let me also assure you that the Federal Government is partnering with the private sector to facilitate the process of testing a week after arrival in a seamless manner.

“This is driven largely by deployment of technology; freedom to pick a certified private laboratory of choice; and delivering the service at minimal cost to the government,” Mustapha said.

Speaking on the striking health workers, he said: “Over the past one week, a lot of discussion in the public space has happened around the strike action by doctors and threats by other unions in the health sector.
