I congratulate Dr. Muhammad Ali Pate, my former Minister of State for health over his appointment by World Bank as Global Director for health, nutrition, and population.
Since he left the country in 2013 to take up an international appointment, Dr. Pate has continued to soar like an eagle on the global scale.
He exhibited prodigious capacity and professionalism as a member of my cabinet. I have no doubt that he will do very well in his new position. Congratulations.-GEJ
