The House Committee on HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, and Malaria has promised to make necessary changes to existing laws to strengthen the fight against the diseases.
Hon. Amobi Ogah, Chairman of the Committee, stated this during a press conference in Abuja, saying the committee would work with relevant stakeholders to improve the fight and ensure that money budgeted for it is used for that purpose.
Ogah stated that the House Committee is aware of the difficulties Nigerians face in combating these diseases, particularly the control of malaria, which appears to defy solutions.
The chairman promised that the committee would work tirelessly in accordance with the 10th legislative agenda to deliver democratic dividends to the people and, as a result, collaborate with the current administration in the fight against diseases.
Ogah emphasised that the committee was prepared to hit the ground running from the start due to the enormous responsibility that lay ahead.
