Chairman of the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) in Kogi State, Dr Godwin Tijani has said medical doctors are leaving the state due to poor working conditions and lingering issues of salaries with the state government. 

Tijani, who said this yesterday in Lokoja, said doctors have started strike 30 days ago over conditions of service, while the government shows no commitment to addressing their demands. 

He said no fewer than 50 of its members had gone for interviews in other states such as Zamfara, Yobe, and Niger while others are on the verge of leaving the country for greener pastures. 

Dr Tijani appealed to the state government “to do the needful to prevent further brain drain that has already started in Kogi health sector.”
