Cash Crunch: Newly Recruited Kogi Health Workers Turned Back

About thirty two (32) newly recruited nurses at the Kogi State Specialist Hospital has been stopped from resuming work by the management of the health institution.
The new recruits were scheduled to resume work at the state-owned hospital this week but left confused when they were turned back. At the moment, their employment status is unknown.
A source who craved anonymity told Kogireports that the management took the decision due to lack of funds.
It will be recalled that about four months ago, Kogi State Commissioner for Health, Dr. Saka Audu, told newsmen that over N2.14bn has been set aside for the recruitment of medical personnel to shore up the shortage of manpower in the health institutions across the state.
From his earlier statement, the state government made known its intention to employ 180 Medical Officers, 52 Consultants, 199 Pharmacists, 400 Nurses, 100 Laboratory Technicians and 49 Radiographers.
