Nigerian govt. to sanction health practitioners prioritizing money over saving lives
The executive secretary of the National Human Rights Commission has asserted that the federal government was in total objection of the manner in which health operators in Nigeria prioritise money over saving lives.
Prof. Bem Angwe stated this at the commission’s HQ in Abuja during an audience session with a team of concerned Benue farmers, who visited to decry the extent of negligence by government and deprivation of basic human rights towards IDPs of herdsmen attacks in the state.
He added that right to healthcare was fundamental and that government was ready to take drastic measures against any health institution or hospital that denied a patient medical attention with attribution to lack of funding bills.
