Okowa threatens uncommitted health workers with sack
Delta State Governor, Dr Ifeanyi Okowa has advised health workers that are not committed to their jobs to resign or get sacked.
The governor gave the warning in Asaba at a meeting with relevant stakeholders on primary healthcare service delivery, in line with his administration’s determination to ensure full routine immunisation coverage. He insisted that routine immunisation could not be toyed with, as it was designed to save lives of children.
In a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Olisa Ifeajika, the governor said the government had observed that the commitment of some health workers to routine immunisation was poor, warning that if they were not ready to show commitment, they are at liberty to leave before actions are taken against them.
He charged local governments chairmen to regularly pay unscheduled visits to health centres, to ensure that the right things were done, while commending stakeholders, who spoke at the meeting, for their sincerity about the way forward for the health sector in the state.
