Following a statement released by the Nigerian Medical Association Ondo State Chapter, the health sector has in recent times experienced insufficient manpower as about 105 medical doctors had resigned in the past year and had since then no replacement had been made.

 

Dr. Stella Adegbehingbe, the Ondo State NMA Chapter Chairman, along with the State Secretary, Dr. Olorunfemi Owa started that the cause of this development was based on irregular and inconsistent payment of salaries by the state government.

 

The group also announced that there has been no
replacement after the resignation of about 105 doctors last year who also claimed that only about three House Officers are left in the service of the Ondo State Government across the three senatorial zones in the state.

They also noted in the statement released that the state government has since not been able to engage requisite numbers of House Officers since 2019.

Which has made their operations in the medical sector almost impossible because this group of Doctors had a peculiar role in Health service delivery.

The Ondo State NMA Chapter has therefore urged the state government to address the issues faced by the health.

“There is no gainsaying that the ongoing laudable efforts at having a Contributory Health Insurance Scheme in the state can only be successful if the urgent issue of manpower need is adequately addressed.”
