The Federal Government has approved the recruitment of 200 medical and clinical personnel for the Federal Medical Centre in Idi-Aba, Abeokuta, Ogun State.
The FMC Medical Director received the approval to hire new workers in a letter from the office of the Head of Service of the Federation.
The letter marked, HCSF/SPSO/ODD/E&WP/650361, was in response to a request by the medical center to employ more staff, and it was titled, ‘RE: Application For A Waiver To Employ Staff At Federal Medical Centre, Abeokuta’.
