Abuja.

President Bola Tinubu has approved the appointment of two new Chief Executive Officers of Agencies under the Federal Ministry of Health and Social Welfare.

Chief Ajuri Ngelale, Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, said this in a statement on Friday in Abuja.

He said Dr Muyi Aina was appointed Executive Secretary/CEO, National Primary Health Care Development Agency (NPHCDA) and Dr Kelechi Ohiri as Director-General/CEO, National Health Insurance Authority (NHIA).

He described Aina as a globally renowned public health leader with a Masters in Public Health degree from Harvard University (USA) and a Doctorate degree from Johns Hopkins University (USA), following his first medical certification at the University of Ilorin.

Ngelale said Ohiri most recently served as the Managing Director for Strategy at Global Alliance for Vaccines in Geneva, Switzerland.

He obtained a Masters in Public Health degree from Harvard University (USA) and another Masters degree in Public Policy from Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government, following his first medical certification from the University of Lagos.

The presidential spokesman said Ohiri had obtained significant experience serving in the World Bank, McKinsey & Company, and had shaped reforms in the National Health Service (NHS) of the United Kingdom.

He said the president urged the new leadership of these two critical agencies to prioritise quality, fairness and accountability in the provision of world-class healthcare to all segments of the Nigerian society.
