These resolutions followed a motion of urgent public importance moved by Ganiyu Johnson on Tuesday during the Plenary.

Moving the motion, Mr. Johnson said that despite Nigeria being among the highest producers of diaspora doctors in the world, he noted that the nation faces an acute shortage of medical practitioners in the country.
