Obafemi F.A., Obaoghe T.O., Aruwa M. C., Irughe R. I., Okediji E. O., Zamani P. T., Ezekiel D. I., Ofoche C. O., Akinseesin O. A., Obi G. E., Onwude J. U., Olla J. O., Amosu O. G., and Shokoya A. O.
The majority of the respondents (n=112, 80%) indicated that Nigeria is not healthy while 20% (n=28) indicated otherwise. Ascertaining if participants have a role in the health of Nigeria, the result indicated that the majority of the respondents (90%, n= 126) were of the opinion that they have a role to play in improving the health of Nigeria. Participants in the current study appear to be ready for a shift in the nature and systems of development around them, according to the findings. They had a clear understanding of what health was and what it meant to be in a healthy state and based on their response to the country's current state of health, it is clear that they require change, which is reflected in their belief that they have a role to play in the country's health and development.
