ABIA: Govt denies sacking doctors

THE commissioner for health in Abia State, Ngozi Okoronkwo, has dismissed as false and unsubstantiated the rumor that the state government has fired all of the state’s public-sector doctors.

The Commissioner stated that the reported dismissal is “only a figment of the authors’ imagination,” adding that “the government has no intention of dismissing or disengaging any doctor or health personnel currently working to support our ongoing efforts to revive the health sector in the state.”

Additionally, she insisted that no one had received a request to submit a “fresh expression of interest” as stated in a fictitious circular.

Okoronkwo asked the medical community and the general public to disregard the rumor and support the government’s numerous initiatives aimed at advancing the delivery of holistic healthcare in the state.
