Former President Goodluck Jonathan on Tuesday said the healthcare delivery system is crucial to national security.

Speaking during the commissioning of the General Hospital in Ikot Ekpene Local Government Area of Akwa Ibom State, the ex-President asked governments at all levels to ensure that the healthcare needs of Nigerians meet the United Nations specifications on health.

According to him, the COVID-19 pandemic has opened the eyes of everyone including administrators, politicians and professionals that health-related issues should no longer be taken for granted.

He equally commended the Akwa Ibom State Governor, Udom Emmanuel for the provision of health infrastructures, on whose invitation he was in the state to inaugurate the medical facility.
