Abdullahi Mashi, the Permanent Secretary of the Federal Ministry of Health, has slumped during a Ministerial Tenders Board (MTB) meeting at the ministry’s head office in Abuja.

Permanent secretary had earlier complained of a slight headache and dizziness during the meeting but shoved it aside, only for him to collapse a few moments after.

The permanent secretary, who was presiding over the meeting before the incident, has since been taken to a hospital.

Mr Mashi, an accountant by profession and an indigene of Katsina State, was deployed from the Federal Ministry of Communications in June this year.

Before his appointment as permanent secretary, he was the Director of Finance and Accounts in Nigeria Security and Defence Corps, Abuja.
