UNTH restates commitment to improve workers’ welfare
The University of Nigeria Teaching Hospital (UNTH), has restated its commitment to improve workers’ welfare for increased productivity.
This was reiterated by the Chief Medical Director of UNTH, Dr. Obinna Onodugo, who through pursuing his reform agenda has given the hospital a face-lift, built a new spirit among the workers and also improved on their welfare.
According to a statement, since the approval of Onodugo’s appointment by President Muhammadu Buhari in May 2019, no staff union has embarked on strike.
Already aware of the challenges ahead since he took over the helm of affairs, and his experience having served in the previous administration as chairman of the medical advisory committee (CMAC) of the hospital, the statement noted that the new CMD has carried out two sessions of open-heart surgery.
The statement explained that within the past one year, Dr. Onodugo, has left no one in doubt about his capability to take UNTH, located in Ituku-Ozalla, Enugu State, to greater heights as a centre of excellence.
“After a successful eight-year tenure, the former CMD, Dr. Chris Amah, bowed out from office on May 17, 2019 and was succeeded by Onodugo, a young and vibrant medical practitioner from the College of Medicine, University of Nigeria, Nsukka, who surprised all to come tops after a keenly contested interview, beating several other contestants, including professors,” the statement said.
