The Government of Japan yesterday Friday donated 31 ambulances to the Federal Ministry of Health for onward distribution to selected tertiary health institutions across the country.

Professor Adewole praised Japan for keeping faith with the promise made to Nigeria a few years ago. “This is the outcome of the note-verbal agreement signed by the Federal Government represented by the National Planning Commission now Ministry of Budget & National Planning and the Japanese Government represented by the Japanese Embassy on the 30th September, 2014. “I am aware that the 31 Ambulances that are being handed over today is the first phase, and that another additional 12 ambulances will be handed over to us by 2018, as the second phase,” he said.

The Minister added that, the singular act of generosity by the Asia giant would further deepen relationship between the countries in the years ahead, stressing that the Ministry of Health would now be more responsive to emergency situations with the ambulances in the service of the various health centres in the country. “This move by the Japanese government has provided the opportunity to strengthen greater collaboration and partnership between our two countries. With this kind gesture, our bilateral tie is further deepened.
