The Kwara State Governor, Abdulrahman AbdulRazaq, has authorised the recruitment of 197 medical personnel in an effort to improve healthcare delivery in the state.

Halimah Sulu-Gambari, the spokesperson for the Kwara State Health Management Board, had disclosed this in a statement on Sunday and stated that the personnel would include 23 medical doctors and 72 nurses with varying specialization.

Others include 3 senior registrars, 13 pharmacy technicians and 6 pharmacists.

According to the statement, “Others include four medical laboratory scientists, five scientific officers, 20 Community Health Extension Workers (CHEW), 20 Junior CHEW, and 23 hospital attendants. We indeed commend the governor for this timely approval as it will help to replace some of the hands that we have lost to attrition or retirement.
