Kwara Health Workers Demand Improved Welfare Package


By Nurat Uthman

The Kwara Chairman of the National Association of Nigeria Nurses and Midwives (NANNM), Alhaji Aminu Shehu, has called on the state government to improve members welfare package.

Aminu made the appeal on Saturday in Ilorin on the side line of a forum addressing the gross shortage of manpower of medical practitioners in the state.

He also urged the state government to employ more health workers that would measure up with the increasing number of patients in publicnhealgh facilities.

According to him, there are only 700 nurses in the state and for them to be sufficient and efficient in discharging their work, government must employ 3,000 more and also ensure better welfare package.

“Last year we mounted pressure on the state government to increase our salary and the governor increased it from 60 per cent to 70 per cent, but didn’t meet our expectations because we demanded for 100 per cent.

“The governor employed more nurses last year, but as he employed they spent sometime and leave the service for better offer.
