Rivers State Governor, Siminalayi Fubara has approved the immediate employment of 500 health workers in the Rivers State University Teaching Hospital, Port Harcourt.

The Chief Medical Director of the RSUTH, Prof. Chizindu Alikor, who disclosed this in Port Harcourt on Tuesday, lauded the governor for the gesture.

Recall that Fubara recently held a meeting with the newly appointed members of the Rivers State Health Management Board.

Prof. Alikor who confirmed the approval said it followed an official communication from the State Civil Service Commission to the RSUTH management.

He stated, “We received an official communication from the Rivers State Civil Service Commission conveying the approval of His Excellency, Governor Siminalayi Fubara to the board and management of the Rivers State University Teaching Hospital to proceed immediately in employing 500 healthcare workers into the hospital.

“The directive of that communication is that all of this should commence immediately and should be concluded within the next three months. And the understanding is that the staff should have resumed work in the next three months.”

The RSUTH CMD also confirmed an earlier directive to promote over 400 of the state teaching hospitals that had not been promoted for more than eight years.

He said the development sparked off jubilation in the hospital.

According to him, “The entire hospital community received with great excitement and joy the approval by His Excellency Governor Siminalayi Fubara for the promotion of over 400 staff of the Rivers State University Teaching Hospital who have not been promoted in the past eight to ten years.

“It was received with great joy, great excitement in the hospital.”
