It is seen as a critical step towards achieving healthcare self-sufficiency and reducing dependency on imported medical products.

“This bold move demonstrates President Tinubu’s commitment to prioritizing public health and strengthening our healthcare infrastructure,” stated Mrs. Fatima Ibrahim, a healthcare entrepreneur. “It sends a clear signal that Nigeria is open for business in the healthcare sector, encouraging both local entrepreneurs and international partners to invest in our country.”

The removal of import taxes on healthcare goods is part of a broader strategy to transform Nigeria’s healthcare landscape, emphasizing affordability, accessibility, and quality.

As Nigerians commend President Tinubu for his decisive action, expectations are high for sustained improvements in healthcare delivery and outcomes nationwide.

With optimism abound, stakeholders are hopeful that these measures will pave the way for a healthier and more resilient Nigeria, where every citizen has access to the healthcare they need to thrive.
