ANHEJ calls on FG to begin implementation of Emergency Ambulance services

Bukola Afeni
The  Association of Nigeria Health Journalist (ANHEJ) has called on the federal government, to begin the implementation of the Emergency Ambulance services , on all major highways in the country, as provided for in the Basic Health Care Provision Fund (BHCPF).
Mallam Hassan Zaggi, ANHEJ’s president stated this while the  executive  and members of the association,  paid  a condolence visit to the national president, and leadership of Medical and  Health workers union, over the demise of the former secretary of the union.
He said  implementation of the emergency ambulance services will save the lives of hundreds of Nigerians, who are accident victims on the  highways from untimely deaths.
He said ANHEJ is commiserating with  the management and members of the Medical and Health Workers Union of Nigeria(MHWUN), over the demise of the Secretary General, Late Comrade (Dr.) Silas Adamu, who died together with his wife and daughter in a ghastly motor accident along Abuja-Kaduna highway, recently.
“For most of us who have covered MHWUN since its early years, we know the Late Comrade Silas Adamu to be a very humble, humane, hardworking, calm, intelligent, friendly and a detrabalised Nigerian.
Our Association started working closely with the late Comrade Silas Adamu since 2008 when he was the Organizing Secretary of MHWUN and an active member of JOHESU.”
“The death of Comrade  Silas Adamu, to us, is very painful and tragic.We pray that God will give  the president, management and entire members of the MHWUN, the family, and the rest of us the fortitude to bear the loss”.
Mallam Zaggi, also called for a renewed and sustained relationship between the MHWUN and ANHEJ.
The President, MHWUN, Josiah Biobelemoye who was represented by Barr.  Anthony Oghiagbon, commended ANHEJ’s team for paying the condolence visit.
“We are helpless in this situation. If we had the power, if it was money, like the Yorubas will say ‘death does not accept cola nut’ if not, the Alafin of Oyo who was in control of colanut in the world, couldn’t have died. When death comes, there is no escape .”
He said the  union is an organization with structures,  and techniques of operation.
 “What has happened will not affect our relationship with you people. We cannot be fighting on behalf of members and hide under a finger.
We need the world to know what we are doing, and it can only be known through the media”.
“We also advice that you do not take the loss of our SG to be the end of our relationship. We are assuring you that our relationship will continue and we demand your continued maximum cooperation with us.”
