The summit will be held in Abuja from December 6 to 8, 2021, in collaboration with the Coalition of Development Partners.

The PSC has also mobilized all vital stakeholders, including development partners, for this significant National Summit, according to Muhammad.
He did, however, invite Nigerians and the rest of the world to visit the summit’s website.
“We are heartened and encouraged by the support we have received so far from our development partners and the private sector.
“With just one day away from the commencement of this summit, which will help us to redefine our national COVID-19 response and build the health security framework for the country,” he added.
“There will be a virtual session that can be accessed by all. In order to register, you will log on to the website: http2021.covid19summit.com.ng.
“I want to thank all Nigerians, members of the diplomatic corps for their understanding in our procedures.
“Our international development partners, for providing technical and financial support, members of the press, for doing your work to ensure that we advance the cause of public health, and Nigeria remains a very safe environment,” he said.
Mr Boss Mustapha, the Secretary to the Government of the Federation and Chairman of the PSC on COVID-19, told NAN that the committee will convene a COVID-19 summit in cooperation with the Coalition of Development Partners in the country to prepare for its winding down.
The summit’s theme, according to Mustapha, would be “Pushing through the Last Mile to End the Pandemic and Build Back Better.”
“Leadership And Governance in Pandemic Recovery and Reconstruction,” “Nigeria’s Health-Security Framework for Effective Response to Global Health Security Threats,” and “Nigeria’s Health-Security Framework for Effective Response to Global Health Security Threats” are among the sub-themes.
The SGF stated that the summit will be an august gathering of major players from the country’s health, economic, security, and policymaking sectors.
