Enugu to recruit 355 health workers

18 April 2013, 09:02

Enugu -The Enugu State Government has approved the recruitment of 355 health workers for secondary health facilities in the state.

Briefing newsmen at the end of the state’s Executive Council meeting in Enugu on Wednesday, the Commissioner for Information, Chuks Ugwoke, said the health workers would be deployed to the seven district hospitals, three sub-district hospitals and the 41 cottage hospitals in the state.

He explained that the recruitment would involve medical officers, nurses, pharmacists, radiographers, laboratory scientists, security guards and clerical officers.

According to him, the recruitment is in line with the commitment of the government to ensuring improved access to quality health care delivery.

Ugwoke said the executive council had also approved the renovation of the state’s Independent Electoral Commission office.

The commissioner said that the project would cost N29 million, noting that it was to create a conducive working environment.

``The Executive Council today approved a draft bill for a law to establish the Enugu State Tourism Board to improve and control tourism activities like hotels, fast foods and recreational parks.

``The bill will be sent to the State House of Assembly for consideration and possible passage,’’ he said.

Ugwoke said that a contract of N69 million had been awarded to an Italian company for the renovation and repair of the state’s liaison office in Abuja.

He explained that the work, which would include re-roofing of the building and landscaping of the premises, among others, would help restore the confidence of occupiers of the building.
