NMA wants health sec­tor out of con­cur­rent list

Daily Trust - - HEALTH - From Romoke W. Ah­mad, Ilorin

The Nige­rian Med­i­cal As­so­ci­a­tion (NMA) has called for the re­moval of the health sec­tor from the con­cur­rent list to address the wel­fare chal­lenges of med­i­cal prac­ti­tion­ers and workers in the sec­tor.

Chair­man, Kwara State chap­ter of the or­gan­i­sa­tion, Dr Abubakar Ayinla, made the call while speak­ing at a press con­fer­ence in llorin, to mark the com­mence­ment of the 2016 An­nual Gen­eral Meet­ing (AGM) of the as­so­ci­a­tion.

He said if the health sec­tor was re­moved from the con­cur­rent list, it would en­sure that the fed­eral gov­ern­ment took ul­ti­mate de­ci­sion as it af­fected the sec­tor.

Ayinla said the sec­tor should be in­cluded in the ex­clu­sive list, adding that it would fa­cil­i­tate the for­ma­tion of a central body that would en­sure im­ple­men­ta­tion.
