The Nigerian Government through the Federal Ministry of Health has announced an initiative to crowdsource a name for the Basic Healthcare Provision Fund.

A post by the ministry’s official Twitter handle on Wednesday said the move is to find “an easier name, possibly from one of our beautiful diverse local languages” for the fund.

Aso Rock also tweeted its support for the initiative, calling on Nigerians to share what good health means in their local languages.

Trust Nigerians, some of them wasted no time in coming up with different names.

There were, however, others who thought it was a needless waste of their time.
