NIGERIA’S HEALTH MINISTRY:   NEW PERMANENT SECRETARY EMERGED A press statement from  Nigeria’s Federal Ministry of Health stated that the new Permanent Secretary, Abdullahi Mashi has assumed office,.

According to the statement on Monday by spokesperson of the ministry, Boade Akinola, Mr Mashi is one of the three permanent secretaries whose redeployment was approved by President Muhammadu Buhari on June 29.

Mr Mashi took over from Clement Uwaifo. Mr Uwaifo had left the ministry on June 28 and handed over to the Director, Department of Public Health, Evelyn Ngige, to steer the affairs of the ministry in acting capacity until the appointment of a substantive permanent secretary.

Addressing the directors and management staff of the ministry, the new permanent secretary stressed the need to improve on service delivery at hospitals, particularly at the Accident and Emergency (A&E) departments.




He said this was very important in order to address the current worrisome situation experienced by patients across the country.

In that regards, Mr. Mashi urged the Servicom department of the ministry to occasionally pay unscheduled visits to hospitals to monitor service delivery activities with the aim of ensuring proper work ethics and improving efficiency.

The new Permanent Secretary said with the calibre of staff the ministry is endowed with, he was at home and willing to learn quickly in order to get used to his new office.

He also sought the cooperation of members of the labour union of the ministry which he said was necessary for a peaceful working environment.




Mr. Mashi, an accountant by profession and an indigene of Katsina State, was deployed from the Federal Ministry of Communications.

Before his appointment as permanent secretary, he was the Director of Finance and Accounts in Nigeria Security and Defence Corps, Abuja.
