Gov Akeredolu vows to deal with corrupt health officials
Governor Rotimi Akeredolu of Ondo State on Friday threatened to deal with healthcare workers indulging in sharp practices in the State Primary Healthcare Development Board.
Akeredolu issued the threat at Idanre Local Government Area of the state while flagging off the 2018 Measles Vaccination Campaign (MVC).
“I have set up a panel of inquiry to fish out some elements in the Primary Health Care Development Board engaging in sharp practices.
“Those that refuse to dispense drugs given to them and other means of corruption will not be spared.
“This money is from our partners that must be spent accordingly and those caught culpable will be exposed.
“No amount of protests will stop us to dismiss them when caught,” he said.
The governor charged the board workers, to be honest, and transparent, saying that they should strive to do more.
According to him, the state has done very well in immunisation and other healthcare delivery.
He said the state was among those that topped national encouraging immunisation chart.
“The former governor piloted a lot of ideas and policies in the sector and we have determined to build on his work.
