FG orders recall of 16,000 sacked doctors

‎Perhaps due to the raging Ebola scourge or as a result of pressure from several quarters, the Federal Government has just announced the lifting of the directive sacking 16,000 doctors across the country.

The order, which signifies a change of the stance expressed by the Presidency all along, is in contrast to the widely-criticised directive terminating the appointments of resident doctors at Federal.
Upon the suspension of the strike action embarked upon by the Nigerian Medical Association days ago, the Minister of Health, Prof. Onyebuchi Chukwu insisted that the doctors would have to notify the ministry through a letter but the latest directive has changed all that.
