NPHCDA Did not advocate for $200m loans for malaria nets-Mohammad Ohitoto

The head of Public Relations Unit,NPHCDA,Mohammad Ohitoto, denied all allegations that NPHCDA advocated for $200 million loan for malaria nets.

“The attention of the National Primary Health Care Development Agency has been drawn to some online publications quoting the ED/CEO NPHCDA, Dr. Faisal Shuaib as advocating for a $200 million loan for the importation and local production  of mosquito nets in the country.This is to inform Nigerians that this statement is not only untrue but also a figment of the imagination of the writer as the CEO never discussed the malaria programme nor granted any interview on the malaria programme. It is pertinent to state that the malaria programme is the responsibility of the National Malaria Elimination Programme (FMOH). Therefore, the NPHCDA Chief executive has bo reason whatsoever to discuss or advocate for funding such intervention. This news is outrightly unfounded and fake and should be disregarded by all well meaning Nigerians”
