NMA Issues 21-day Ultimatum To Edo State Govt

A 21-day ultimatum has been served the Edo state government by the State chapter of Nigeria Medical Association, NMA, alleging poor condition of service and paucity of doctors in the state government hospitals, issues if not address within the ultimatum will make them down tools.

The state government, however, described as unfair, the claim by NMA that it was neglecting the problems in the health sector, insisting that the administration was doing all it could to revamp the decay in the health sector which the administration of Governor Adams Oshiomhole met when it came on board.

State chairman of NMA, Dr. Emmanuel Ighodaro, who addressed newsmen in Benin City, lamented that “despite all presentations by NMA and other stakeholders to the state government on the decay of health infrastructures, work place environment and poor condition of service, the government has not shown any convincing commitment at addressing the problems confronting the health sector.”
