Sokoto recruits SURE-P health workers

23 November 2015, 11:19

Abuja - Governor Aminu Tambuwal has instructed the Sokoto Primary Healthcare Development Agency to absorb 50 nurses and midwives trained by Subsidy Reinvestment and Empowerment Programme (SURE-P) into the state civil service.

He said the nurses and midwives formed the backbone of SURE-P’s maternal health project executed in eight local government areas of the state in the last two years.

“We intend to continue with the maternal health project in the state even though the Federal Government has decided to halt the SURE-P programme,” said Tambuwal.

Meanwhile, Tambuwal has also directed the primary healthcare agency ‎to employ all the midwives currently undergoing the compulsory one-year internship training in an effort to boost manpower requirements in the state.

The affected professionals, which include both indigenes and non-indigenes of Sokoto State, ‎will be placed under Grade Level 7 under the scheme of the agency.

Tambuwal said government had provided funds to settle their salaries and other entitlements.

The last batch of trainees graduated last week.
