The senate committee on health is sparring with the presidency over the recent conversion of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19, PTF, to the Presidential Steering Committee.

Committee chairman, senator Yahaya Oloriegbe, said, during a public hearing on a bill seeking to establish a federal medical center in Mubi, Adamawa State, that the senate was not consulted by the presidency before making the move to convert PTF to PSC.  He said it is unclear to the senate what would be the operational mechanism of the PSC.

He said the committee will invite the permanent secretary of the ministry of health to answer some questions about the conversion.  Some of the issues on which the committee would like to be informed include the content of the conversion, and how the steering committee would work.

Permanent secretary Abdulaziz Abdullahi says his ministry has noted the senate’s concerns and would ensure proper steps are taken to provide the information needed.
