Top pharmaceutical companies have resumed partnership with Kwara State after years of blacklisting the state owing to debts and lack of responsive attitude of the previous administration.

Their return, according to the Executive Secretary, Kwara State Hospitals Management Board (KW-HMB), Dr. Abdulraheem Abdulmalik, was as a result of the visible commitment of Governor AbdulRahman AbdulRazaq to the health sector in the state.

The Executive Secretary noted that the injection of funds into the sector and transparency of the administration re-established the partnership as the debts of the companies were serviced.

The list of the pharmaceutical companies include Pfizer, WWCV, NEIMETH, Philips Pharmaceuticals, among others.

It is recalled that in 2019, the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) also declared intention to reactivate their partnership with Kwara State after 10 years of blacklist.The reintegration of Kwara into the UNICEF wing was facilitated by the vision and financial commitment of Governor AbdulRazaq in the health sector.

The state has received several laurels and recognition over the huge interventions of AbdulRazaq in health, with the recent one being its emergence as the best state in Northcentral Nigeria in primary healthcare service delivery by the Nigeria Governors’ Forum (NGF).
