President Tinubu Approves 5m Pair Of Eye Glasses To Nigerians With Sight Impairment


LAGOS SEPTEMBER 2ND (NEWSRANGERS)-President Bola Tinubu yesterday in Abuja declared support for a partnership between the Federal Ministry of Health’s National Eye Health Programme & the Peek Vision Foundation to provide more than 5 million pairs of eyeglasses to Nigerians with sight impairments.

 According to a statement by presidential spokesman, the president recounted how close to home his first intervention in eye health was.

“My first experience was with my mother of blessed memory. She was ill & could not recognise me. When I intervened, she was treated & given a pair of glasses. The next question she asked me was: ‘I have you & you are able to do this for me. What about those other women & their children who may not have somebody like you to intervene for them?’

“So I made a promise to her that I would pursue the mass provision of eye care vigorously & that I would provide free eye screenings & surgeries to people.”
