NMA concerned as 105 medical doctors resign in Ondo state


The Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) has announced that at least 105 Medical Doctors have resigned in Ondo State in the past year.

NMA State Chairman, Dr. Stella Adegbehingbe, and State Secretary, Dr. Olorunfemi Owa blamed this on irregular and percentage payment of salaries by the state government.

The group which also disclosed that there’s been no replacement of those who resigned, alleged that only three House Officers are left in the service of the Ondo State Government across the three senatorial zones in the state.

The statement read;

“We have it on good records that about 105 medical doctors have resigned their employment from the Teaching Hospital in the last year alone.

“Ondo State has not been able to engage requisite numbers of House Officers since 2019. This has made our work almost impossible because this group of Doctors have a peculiar role in Health service delivery.

“It is troubling to note that only three House Officers are left in the service of the Ondo State Government across the three senatorial zones in the state.

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