Abia state govt discovers doctors who resigned and migrated were still receiving salary


Alex Otti, governor of Abia state, has stated that investigations by the state government had uncovered on its payroll some doctors who left the state employment and migrated abroad to seek greener pastures, in what is commonly known as japa.

The state governor, Alex Otti, disclosed this in Umuahia, the state capital at Thursday’s first Abia State Council on Health at the International Conference Centre.

“Our ongoing digitalization of the Abia State civil service has uncovered some staff that have left their duty post for greener pastures, yet still receive remuneration from the State government.

While the criminality involved in this is going to be addressed by the relevant agencies of government, the important thing here is that we do not have the number of hands that were hitter to report. We are working hard to fill these gaps.” he said

The governor added that his administration would recruit more health workers to strengthen the health sector.
