The Nigerian Medical Association
has called for the extension of the ‘sting operation’ carried out by the
Department of State Services (DSS) in the judiciary to the health
sector.

 

The NMA President, Prof. Mike Ogirima,
stated this in Abuja at the 2016 Physicians’ Week with the theme,
“Healthcare delivery in a frail economy: Challenges and way forward.”


Ogirima
said if the sector is rid of corruption, the insufficient resources
available, especially amid the economic recession, will be better
utilised to improve healthcare services.

“We
call on the Federal Government to extend the anti-corruption crusade to
all other sectors of the economy as it was done in the judiciary arm of
the government.Ogirima said.

 

“It is our belief that
if this is extended to the health sector, the little resources available
in the sector would be properly utilised to improve the affordability
and accessibility of healthcare services to Nigerians who are passing
through the economic recession.” 

 

The NMA boss also
called for the investigation and prosecution of all those who diverted
relief materials meant for the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in
the north-east.
