Group Calls For Sack Of CMDs Of Health Centres



Prof Adewole, Health Minister

President Muhammadu Buhari has been called upon to embark on the reform of all Federal Medical Centres, FMC, across the country.

The Seventh Force is a group of nonpartisan patriots with membership across the country.

The group in the letter signed by Mr. Folarin Odusote, said the group has diligently followed issues in the polity and have come to the conclusion that Nigerians are more concerned about the parlous state of healthcare delivery even more than security and economic issues. “From the latest survey conducted by the Seventh Force, we have found that the Federal Medical Centres across the country have become deathtraps to Nigerians on account of how they are being run.

“The conduct of many, if not all, of the Chief Medical Directors of these centres underscores the urgent need to reform them to address the hardship they put Nigerians through for Your Excellency to deliver on campaign promises made to Nigeria.”

The group accused the medical directors of sabotaging the efforts of the president to deliver on democracy dividends to the people.

The group said, “Majority of these Medical Directors have demonstrated the highest level of incompetence and ineptitude in the administration of the centres, which has resulted in the facilities being closed to the public for extended period of time owing to industrial actions by workers’ unions, shortage of consumables and other ills that are inimical to their ability to meet the healthcare needs of Nigerians.

“The Federal Medical Centre, Makurdi has become the classical example and proof that Mr. President cannot continue to harbour agents of darkness and expect that the health sector can function optimally”, Odusote said.
