No fewer than 321 medical and health personnel employed by the Ogun State Hospitals Management Board (HMB) in the last two years, to beef up the existing health workforce have been confirmed by the State government.
The Director of Administration and Supplies on the Board, Mr. Olumuyiwa Ojo made this known during the confirmation exercise held at the Board’s Conference Room in Abeokuta, saying 174 of the personnel were in the senior staff cadre, while those in the junior staff cadre were 147, to render efficient healthcare services to the people.
Mr. Ojo added that the officers whose appointments were considered for confirmation by the Board had stayed in the service for more than two years with four progress evaluation reports with no adverse report.
Speaking with journalists after the confirmation exercise, the duo of Dr. Adegeye Eweje and Dr. Omowunmi Moibi from General Hospital, Ikenne, appreciated the government for finding their service worthy by employing them to contribute their quota to the health needs of the State.
Lending her voice, a registered nurse, Mrs. Ayomikun Egbetayo, expressed her appreciation to the Prince Dapo Abiodun-led government and leadership of the Board for a stress-free exercise, saying confirmation of her appointment would motivate her to do more in caring for patients.
