NPHCDA Headquarters was agog yesterday with staff, partners, friends and well-wishers at an unprecedented reception to celebrate the conferment of “Officer of the Order of the Niger” (OON) national honor on the Agency’s ED/CEO – Dr Faisal Shuaib by President Muhammadu Buhari.
In his spirit of generosity and understanding, the ED dedicated the award to the entire staff and partners of the Agency, saying that he would pass the plague round for every staff to see, feel and aspire. He congratulated all, without whom he said the recognition would not have been possible.
It is noteworthy that Dr Faisal Shuaib was the only awardee whose duty post “Primary Health Care” was mentioned when invited to the stage, and the only awardee the President verbally commended during hand over of the plague!
The award of OON to Dr Shuaib was in recognition of his dedication, hardwork, patriotism and proven excellence in Nigeria’s health sector development.
