KADUNA MAN COLLAPSE AS WIFE MAKES SAVINGS FROM MONEY GIVEN HER TO COOK, BUILDS A HOUSE.

A Kaduna man has collapsed out of joy as his wife makes savings from money given her to cook food and built a three bedroom flat without his knowledge

Juan built a three bedroom flat from the savings without her husband’s knowledge.

Realising that her husband was very extravagant in the way he spends money, Juan began saving from the money given to her to cook and take care of other domestic things.

Determined to surprise her husband, she bought a land at the Sabo area of Kaduna along refinery road and started building.

The house is well built together with fence and water, and no member of her household aware of what was going on.

Two months after completing the house, her husband coincidentally got sacked from his job.

Although the man was in pain for three months, Juan refused to disclose she has built a house.

Worse still, their rent had expired three months before Mr. Joseph Yohana, the husband was sacked.

The landlord, six months after their inability to renew their rent gave them quit notice.

Yohana under the pressure of where to get money to renew his rent was asked by his wife to escort her to see one of her relatives living three miles away from their house.

Yohana who drove the wife in his Toyata Camry car did not know exactly where they we’re going.

On their way, the wife asked him to park, she alighted from the car, went to an empty building and started opening the gate, he asked her, who gave you key to someone’s gate and why are you opening the gate.

Juan who did not listen to the husband, opened the gate and asked him to come in.

When the husband went into the house, she held him and said, “I built this house from the savings made in monies you have been given me to cook and take care of other domestic things”

Immediately, Yohana fell and fainted and was rushed to Kaduna general hospital where he was admitted for a day.

Having recovered from the shock, Yohana said the shock was too much to bear while he collapsed out of joy.

A witness miss Agatha, said the family have since in early February packed into their new house and are living happily.

A call on Executive Arm of Government at all levels to implement existing Health Legislative Framework towards eradicating COVID-19

A call on Executive Arm of Government at all levels to implement existing Health Legislative Framework towards eradicating COVID-19 by Daniel, NANbol Listick Honourable Member Representing Langtang North Central State Constituency and Chairman House Committee on Health, Plateau House of Assembly.
As a public health emergency of international concern, the COVID-19 pandemic has drawn global attention and responses. As of 1st of April, 2020 Nigeria recorded 174 cases of COVID-19 and most countries in Africa have also recoded confirmed cases. Despite the rapid responses, there is need to implement existing health legislative framework and develop other legislative framework that will proffer mid-term and long-term solution in handling infectious and related diseases. It is mandatory to have a clear and comprehensive legislative framework for health system strengthening. This will go a long way to eradicate emerging and reemerging infectious diseases including COVID-19.
The Executive Arm of Government at all levels should implement the Basic Health Care Provision Fund within the context of the National Health Act of 2014. The Basic Health Care Provision Fund will also contribute greatly towards reducing disease burden in Nigeria.
The Executive Arm of Government should improve funding of health care system in Nigeria in order to meet up with provision of Section 14 (2)(b) and 17(3)(d) of the 1999 Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria as altered stipulate that "the security and welfare of the people shall be the primary purpose of government" and that "the State shall direct its policy towards ensuring that there are adequate medical and health facilities for all persons.
The Executive Arm of Government should implement to the fullest the resolution reached at the third annual summit of Legislative Network for Universal Health Coverage held November, 2019 at Transcorp Hilton, Abuja. If the implementation of these resolutions would have commenced, our health system would have been strengthened towards managing the present pandemic. The present status of our health industry in Nigeria cannot combat infectious diseases adequately.
The Executive Arm of Government should build infectious disease hospitals in each senatorial district. Human resource for health should be recruited to provide quality services in these hospitals. The hospitals should also be equipped with medical commodities.
The Executive Arm of Government on the Plateau and other States across the nation should assent and implement the following Bills geared towards achieving health and related Sustainable Development Goals:
- A BILL FOR A LAW TO ESTABLISH THE PLATEAU STATE DRUGS AND MEDICAL COMMODITIES MANAGEMENT AGENCY (DMCMA) AND OTHER MATTERS CONNECTED 2020.
- A BILL FOR A LAW TO PROVIDE FOR THE ESTABLISHMENT OF PLATEAU STATE HEALTH MANAGEMENT INFORMATION SYSTEM AND FOR OTHER MATTERS CONNECTED 2020.
- A BILL FOR A LAW TO PROVIDE FOR THE ESTABLISHMENT OF PLATEAU STATE BLOOD TRANSFUSSION SAFETY COMMITTEE FOR THE REGULATION, ASSESSMENT OF BLOOD DONORS, BLOOD AND BLOOD PRODUCTS BANKING, ADMISTRATION AND ETHICS OF DEALING IN BLOOD FOR HUMAN-MEDICAL USE AND RELATED MATTERS, 2020
- A BILL FOR A LAW TO PROVIDE FUNDS TO APPROVED FAITH BASED HEALTH INSTITUTIONS IN PLATEAU STATE AND OTHER MATTERS CONNECTED, 2020.
- Etc.
Legislators should continue to work as a big team across the nation through the platform of Legislative Network for Universal Health Coverage to develop additional Health Legislative Framework that will fetch good health to Nigerians. We should conduct quality oversight that will improve our health system. It is our collective responsibility to fight against COVID-19 and other reemerging infectious diseases.
May God help us to serve our Nation as Law Makers.
