Ogun State Governor Dapo Abiodun has approved the immediate recruitment of resident doctors for the Olabisi Onabanjo University Teaching Hospital (OOUTH).

This is in line with the interim recommendations submitted by the Administrative Panel he set up to look into the remote and immediate causes of the challenges facing the institution.

Also to be recruited are nurses, pharmacists, laboratory scientists and all other categories and cadres of healthcare professionals.

Abiodun ordered that advertisement should be immediately rolled out in all departments where manpower shortage exists, adding that that recruitment should take immediate effect.

In a statement issued by the Chief Press Secretary, Kunle Somorin the nine-man committee chaired by Dr. Yemi Onabowale, the Chief Medical Director of Reddington Hospital, advised the government to recruit competent medical doctors to fill all the manpower shortage at the teaching hospital.

The governor had frowned at the infrastructural and staff deficits facing the hospital during his visit in June. He had also promised to return the tertiary healthcare facility to its past glory.

Inaugurating the committee, he had urged members to assess the operational modalities of the hospital and to suggest how to improve the standard in tandem with acceptable universal standard for medical training, research and tertiary health care services. (The Nation)
