World Health Organization (WHO) has acknowledged the improvement in the Nigerian Health system in recent times.

The Minister of State for Health, Halima Tayo Alao, disclosed this while commissioning some projects in University of Uyo Teaching Hospital, Uyo, Akwa Ibom State.

The minister explained that the commendation by WHO could be attributed to the efforts of President Olusegun Obasanjo in tertiary health institutions, and assured Nigerians that the incoming government would continue with those laudable programmes of the present administration.

In his remarks, the Chief Medical Director of the hospital, Prof. Emmanuel Eyo Ekanem, appreciated the concern of the Federal government in granting the sum of N70 million to the hospital.

The commissioned projects include antenatal bungalow block, water projects of 30,000-litre capacity, Internet block, and children wards, among others.
