“Nigeria is facing serious economic challenges, more so, that with the population of over  175 million people and foreign reserve less than 27 billion dollars ,I think we must save our foreign reserve by looking inwards .” 

The Senator , who expressed dismay over poor state of health  in Nigeria , said governments at all levels must ensure that more hospitals are built ,  employ more medical personnel  and provide the necessary medical facilities that will make Nigerians stay here and get sound medical attention .
