In a communiqué issued after its 96th regular meeting and 10th annual general meeting Saturday in Abuja, the committee said the policy should be implemented by the chief executives of federal tertiary health Institutions.

The association in the communiqué which was read by its outgoing president, Dr Jaf Momoh, said the mass exodus of health workers from their hospitals has become worrisome.
The committee also said no effort should be spared to control the potential spread of the omicron COVID-19 variant in the country, adding that hospitals are well equipped to manage cases.
