Anambra to recruit more medical personnel

By Enyim Enyim

ONITSHA—Anambra State Government is to recruit more doctors, laboratory  scientists and nurses to fill the existing vacant positions created by the  expansion of  health institutions in the state.

Commissioner for Health in the state, Professor Amobi Ilika dropped the hint at the opening of a three-day 32nd Annual General Meeting, AGM, of the Association of General and Private Medical Practitioners of Nigeria, AGPMPN, held in Anambra State.

He said the establishment of the state teaching hospital and expansion of all the departments in the state owned general hospitals gave rise to the existing vacant positions.

“Since Governor Peter Obi’s administration came into power and upgraded government hospitals, which in turn restored the confidence of the populace and attracted many patients, government has no alternative than to employ more health workers to attend to the teeming public who are now patronizing government hospitals,” said Ilika.

However, he declined to mention the number of people to be recruited and when the recruitment  exercise  would begin.
