THE Federal Government yesterday said it would no longer provide
resources to any government official to travel abroad for medical
attention on cases that could be handled in the country.
Speaking at the opening ceremony of the 56th Annual General
Conference and delegates meeting of Nigeria Medical Association,
NMA, in Sokoto, President Muhammadu Buhari, said his
administration would not encourage expending hard earned
resources on any government official seeking medical care abroad.
Buhari, who was represented by the Minister of Health Professor
Isaac Adewole, said “While this administration will not deny anyone
of his or her fundamental human rights, we will certainly not
encourage expending Nigerian hard-earned resources on any
government official seeking medical care abroad, when such can be
handled in Nigeria.”
He called on health professionals to avoid inter-professional crises
which had impacted negatively on the nation’s healthcare delivery
system.
“We have seen the hazards that this unfortunate and highly
preventable problems have caused to the quality of health care
delivery in Nigeria. May I employ members of NMA to always
imbibe the spirit of team work to ensure harmonious relationship
with other health professionals, no profession can effectively and
efficiently function without the other”, he said.
He pledged government commitment to welfare of the health
professionals, adding that “government will review all previous
agreements and take reasonable decisions that will not infringe on
the right of the workers and also invest in programmes that will
improve capacity of all cadres of health workers.”
