The Federal Government has directed the Chief Medical Directors and Managing Directors of federal tertiary hospitals to “immediately” commence the use of consultants and doctors on the National Youth Service Corps to provide routine services.

The government also directed that locum staffers should “be brought in when and where necessary to forestall services’ disruption when applicable and affordable”.

The Minister of Health, Dr. Osagie Ehanire, gave the directive in a statement issued in Abuja on Wednesday.

He was reacting to the nationwide strike by the National Association of Resident Doctors protesting the non-payment of their COVID-19 hazard allowance and other demands.

He said, “lt is with deep concern that l view the ongoing strike by the Nigerian Association of Resident Doctors which commenced yesterday (Tuesday) September 7, 2020.

“We must member that the primary duty of doctors and all health workers is to save lives. Embarking on a strike in this time that the country is battling with the COVlD-19 pandemic is ill-timed and ill-advised.

“lt is a critical time in which all well-meaning medical professionals should close ranks and confront the common enemy, which is the COVlD-I9 pandemic threatening mankind.

“This is therefore one strike too many. Besides, most of the demands have been met and others though difficult, are at an advanced stage of implementation. A little patience would have made a big difference.

“The Federal Ministry of Health finds it necessary to ensure measures are put in place to mitigate the effect of this strike on the generality of our populace by directing the CMDs/MDs of our federal tertiary hospitals to immediately do the following: COVlD-19 treatment outlets should continue to function as before.

“Emergency services should continue to run as before. Routine services should be maintained with Consultants, NYSC Doctors. Locum staffers to be brought in when and where necessary to forestall services disruption when applicable and affordable.

“I call on the NARD to return to work and engage the Federal Government in completing the ongoing due process of implementing the MoU between NARD and government.

“I wish to assure the general public that measures have been put in place to ensure that they continue to access services at all our federal tertiary hospitals across the country.”

Sometimes, these people in govt can be irritatingly weird in their public statements. Some of them are not even qualified as opinion leaders, yet here they are as leaders. angry

Replace practising doctors with corpers? Is Dr Osagie fucking out of his mind? Will he allow any of his family members see them for consultation?

Is there no single competent person in this administration at all!
If you have met the pressing conditions would they be going on strike again and again?
Now you’d prefer to endanger lives of citizens by replacing resident doctors with house officers and youth corp members?
These guys won’t stop till this country grinds to a halt finally! I give up!! undecided

What a useless directive from the said minister of health. NYSC doctors that prescribed vitamin c (Ascorbic acid) for malaria patient with Metronidazole that year is the one being advocated to replace striking resident doctor. This man is not serious.

These people are very unintelligent. They will fly abroad at the slightest headache but will vehemently refuse to invest in our Healthcare system. I pity those who wish them well when they fall sick and die on their way abroad

This is a clear case of education is expensive so our minister wants to try ignorance,
This is wickedness of the highest order they can afford to send their families abroad for treatment leaving the poor masses to suffer.
