NGIGE ANNOUNCES FG ATTEMPTS TO RECOVER WRONGLY PAID MILLIONS FROM DOCTORS


 Minister of Labour and Employment, Chris Ngige has said that the Federal Government will recover millions of naira wrongly paid to 588 medical doctors across the country. 

 Ngige said names of the doctors who wrongly benefitted from Medical Residency Training Fund meant for a particular category of doctors, were uncovered after a thorough “scrutinisation of the 8000 names submitted by Chief Medical Directors of Federal Government health institutions for the training programme”.

 The Minister who also revealed that a substantial amount of the money had been refunded by some of the affected doctors, added that efforts have been intensified to recover the remaining balance. 

 According to him the affected doctors' delay in making a refund, was holding back the Residency Fund payment by the government. Ngige said; ”Ministry of Health has gotten the list of doctors who supposedly are to benefit from the Medical Residency Training Fund. ”Total submission of about 8000 names were gotten and the Ministry of Health is scrutinising them. 

 "We have done the first round of scrutinization and they will now compare what they have with the Post-Graduate Medical College and the Chief Medical Directors who submitted the names. 

 “The Association of Resident Doctors, in each of the tertiary centres, worked with the CMDs to produce those names, but now the names are being verified.

 ”We discovered that about 2000 names shouldn’t be there because they don’t have what is called Postgraduate Reference Numbers of National Postgraduate Medical College and (or) that of the West African Postgraduate Medical College. 

 This is coming amid a face-off between doctors in the country and the federal government over an ongoing strike.
