Buhari Directs NCDC To Recall Retired Staff by vixpal: 8:47am On Mar 27
President Muhammadu Buhari has directed that all recently retired staff of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) should return work.

Mr Buhari gave the directive in a series of tweets on his Twitter handle @MBuhari, late Thursday evening.

The directive is meant to boost the manpower at the public health agency which is coordinating the national response of the ongoing Covid-19 outbreak in the country.

He also gave other directives to help the country combat the ongoing Covid-19 outbreak.

Mr Buhari said he has been receiving updates on the country’s response to Covid-19.

“Over the last few days I have received extensive briefings on the state of the nation as it relates to the Covid-19 pandemic, from the relevant Federal Government agencies as well as the Lagos State Government,” he said.

Since the outbreak of the disease in Nigeria, Mr Buhari, unlike the presidents of many other countries, has not publicly addressed the nation.

Directive

Mr Buhari said he has “directed the NCDC to draft all its recent retirees back into service to beef up our manpower as we respond to the pandemic.”

He added that all staff of the agency undergoing training or on foreign assignments should return to the country.

“Furthermore, all NCDC staff and experts who are away on training or international assignments are to return immediately.

“Already the Nigerian Air Force (NAF) are conducting an evacuation mission to bring back some of our specialists in Central Africa, to enable them support the national response,” he said.

Improved Workforce

The directive is expected to improve the workforce of the NCDC.

The Director-General of NCDC, Chikwe Ihekweazu, had said last week that the agency had insufficient manpower and was maximising what it has.

He said the agency is not only working to battle Covid-19 but also other diseases like the Lassa fever which has caused about 176 deaths across the country.

He, however, said for Covid-19, a multi-sectoral national emergency operations centre (EOC), activated at level 3, continues to coordinate the national response activities.

Outbreak

Currently, Nigeria has recorded 65 cases of Covid-19.

Out of the 65 cases, three cases have been discharged and one death recorded. So far, Lagos tops the chart of states with the highest numbers of cases (44). This is followed by FCT – 11, Ogun – three, Bauchi – two, while Ekiti, Oyo, Edo, Osun, and Rivers have one case each.

The government has also intensified contact tracing to trace those who might have been exposed to the virus from infected people. This has become necessary to contain community spread of the disease in the country.

Deception! Recall all the staffs if you want, this case will teach Nigerians to vote for competent leaders in the future.

I still remember when Nigerians were collecting garri and groundnut from politicians, but today, those politicians cannot share simple nose mask to the people. cheesy grin cheesy

The nation will learn sense by force and all those politicians will be fished out of their hiding rooms.

This would lead to a great revolution

Wrong decision.
There are thousands of appropriately qualified jobless graduates who can be mobilized with the right incentives and trained on d job right away.
Retirees are already elderly and statistics on ground shows d virus is more deadly in the elderly and these ppl might not withstand d sudden stress.
Just flash a lot of cash,like 70k per week with free feeding and accomodation, you'll have enuf volunteers.

I saw this happening weeks ago. If you have parents or relatives who were health workers and now retired, kindly counsel them to stay retired and enjoy this period with them.

Our government does not celebrate health workers let alone those who go the extra mile. God forbid, your retired parents or loved ones contract the virus and die in the process of being recalled, what they'll get at best is 'a health worker test positive' and life goes on.

These criminal government would prefer to have a street named after Lifeless Buhari, Abba Kyari or Mamman Dauri and not really those who put their lives on the line.

Our law makers are about taking possession of exotic SUVs for doing nothing. It isn't worth it.
