The Director-General, Nigeria Centre for Disease Control, Chikwe Ihekweazu, on Thursday noted that the withdrawal of funding to the World Health Organisation will be a huge price to pay.

NCDC stated this during the WHO COVID-19 Africa Media briefing held in Geneva, Switzerland.

Recall that the President of the United State of America, Donald Trump had declared that the country will stop financial support to WHO.

The US President noted that WHO has “failed in its basic duty” in response to the Coronavirus outbreak.

Ihekweazu said that the survival of Africa is dependent on the operations of WHO, hence, there must be funding to the organisation.

“If funding to WHO is affected in a way, it means that there will be a huge price for humanity to pay and all of us in this side of the world.”

“I really hope that everyone around the world will come together to support the organisation, not just by speaking, but by funding the organisation.”

“The funding of WHO is so important to all, and it is hard to explain to someone outside the continent how it is.”

“We really rely on them for guidance because of the work they do, and we don’t have the luxury to build up the infrastructure and knowledge on our own and expertise they offer.”

“WHO is critical to our collective survival in Africa and the world. A price will be paid, and I hope we don’t get to that stage,” he said.
