Katsina - The Medical and Health Workers Union of Nigeria (MHWUN) in Katsina State, on Monday decried the inadequate manpower at primary healthcare centres in the state.
The union Chairman, Hussaini Hamisu, said at a press briefing in Katsina, that the shortage had seriously affected healthcare delivery in the state.
Hamisu urged the state and local governments to employ more personnel to provide the much needed healthcare services to the people.
The chairman, however, commended the state government for constructing more healthcare centres, providing free drugs and mobile ambulances to ease referral cases.
He also urged the state government to settle the six months outstanding allowances due to the union members to boost their morale for effective service delivery.
Hamisu called on the health workers to discharge their duties efficiently, saying that the union would do everything possible to fight for their rights.
