The Health Commissioner, Dr. Wahab Adegbenro said this at a one day training for Medical Record Officers of Secondary Health facilities in Akure.

Adegbenro, who said the loss of money was worrisome to government, said: “government would no longer allow such slip in future, hence the need to train staff on data gathering.”
