Abia owes health workers 13 months’ salaries — NMA

 The Nigerian Medical Association on Thursday said the Abia State Government owed doctors and other health workers at the Abia State Teaching Hospital up to 13 months’ salaries, while members of the state Hospital Management Board had not been paid for 10 months.

The NMA President, Dr Francis Faduyile, said this in Abuja while reading the communique issued at the end of the 59th Annual General Conference and delegates’ meeting of the association which was held in Abakaliki, Ebonyi State.

Faduyile noted that the salary of Nigerian doctors was abysmally lower than what their counterparts were offered in other countries, stating that the NMA would appear at the next meeting of the Nigeria Governors Forum to discuss the issue with state governors.
