FG warns FETHA staff against corruption
By PETER OKUTU
ABAKALIKI—THE federal government yesterday warned members of staff and management of Federal Teaching Hospital, Abakaliki, FETHA, against collecting money from prospective employees who had applied for employment in the health institution.
Minister of Health, Prof Onyebuchi Chukwu, who handed down the warning during an unscheduled working visit to two health institutions in the state, FETHA and the National Obstetric Fistula Centre, Abakaliki, said the federal government would deal decisively with those guilty of such act.
He charged the management of the institutions to maintain the proper work ethics befitting of their status as the federal government had put modalities in place to ensure prompt payment and promotion of workers at every point in time.
Chukwu also called on the staff to work assiduously towards the upliftment of FETHA, even as he cautioned them to eschew dichotomy and work for the overall success of the hospital.
