NMA to FG: End doctors’ killings, abductions

Nigeria Medical Association (NMA)

The Nigerian Medical Association on Wednesday urged the federal government to address incessant kidnappings and killings of doctors and other health workers by insurgents.

NMA President, Professor Innocent Ujah made the call in Abuja during the association’s 2021 physician week themed ‘Nigeria in the COVID Era: Health Systems Strengthening for National Security and Prosperity.’

Represented by the chairman of the FCT chapter of the association, Enema Amodu, he said the association condemned the current killings of doctors in Anambra State.

He urged all state governments owing doctors salaries and allowances to prevent frustration among the workforce.

“The issue of brain drain among medical doctors must be urgently addressed by governments, otherwise the consequences of turning a blind eye to this will be ominous,” he added.
