I firmly believe that our not so popular health fraternity has once again taken a nosedive and abjectly failed in containing that meningococcal or mango skin or whatever that fatal virus is termed.

One of the schools has unfortunately been forced to close down in order to contain this epidemic, FT 29/03.

Well I have a dream — to see a health professional being sworn in as “Health Minister” post the 2018 elections. I believe it takes more than just officiating at functions and cutting fancy cakes to get the job done.
