Abuja—A group, Coalition for Nigerian Health Reforms (CNHR) has called on health workers in the country to vote for the All Progressives Congress (APC) Presidential candidate, Bola Ahmed Tinubu as president in the upcoming 25th of February 2023 presidential election.
In a statement by its convener, Dr. Winifred E. Esite, the group stated that during the COVID-19 pandemic health workers rendered unrelenting selfless service to the country which led to the defeat of the pandemic in the country.
