'I am not Happy About Strikes and Rivalries in Nigeria's Health Sector' - Jonathan

President Goodluck Jonathan on Friday promised that the Federal Government would act expeditiously on the report of the Presidential Committee of Experts on Inter-Professional Relationship in the Public Health Sector.

``I had to set up the committee because I am very sad, and I know most Nigerians feel very sad that strikes and unhealthy rivalries among professionals in the health sector have adversely affected medical services,’’ he said.

He said an immediate action on the report was necessary to end the frequent rivalries among different cadre of professionals in the country's public health sector.

The president said the Federal Government would review the report immediately with a view to issuing a White Paper on it and beginning the implementation of its accepted recommendations early next year.

Jonathan expressed optimism that the implementation of accepted recommendations would help to stop unhealthy rivalries and incessant strikes in the public health sector.
