The Minister of Interior, Ogbeni Rauf Aregbesola has said that all recruits into the country’s arm-bearing agencies must have a clean bill of health from recognised medical institutions in the country before they will be given employment by the government.
The Minister gave this assurance in his office in Abuja on Tuesday, 7 January, 2020 while playing host to the leadership of the Nigerian Medical Association (NMA).
The NMA leaders were led by their National President, Dr Francis Adedayo Faduyile.
Aregbesola stated further that the ministry will also partner with NMA to enforce the present administration’s policies and regulations on expatriate quotas in the health sector as well as protect the dignity and integrity of Nigerians.
The Gazelle News.com can also report that the Minister, through a post on his Facebook page, gave assurance that the ministry is also going into partnership with NMA to evaluate the mental stability of recruits into the various arms-bearing agencies of the government.
“I recognise the importance of NMA and the role it plays in Nigeria’s health sector. We are partnering with the association in enforcing our policies and regulations on expatriate quotas in the health sector and in protecting the dignity and integrity of Nigerians.
“More importantly, we are partnering with NMA to help in evaluating the mental stability of recruits into our agencies. Going forward, nobody will be engaged into our arms-bearing Services without getting a clean bill of health from recognised medical institutions,” the Minister said.
