The Kwara State branch of the Association of Laboratory Technicians and Assistants of Nigeria (AMELTAN) have praised Governor Abdulfatah Ahmed’s administration for the renovating and remodelling five General Hospitals in Ilorin, Omu-Aran, Offa, Share and Kaiama.
The general hospitals cover the three senatorial districts of the state.
AMELTAN appealed to the state government to start paying call-duty allowance for their member’s working day and night in the state.
AMELTAN also wants its members especially those working with the Community Health Insurance Scheme placed on permanent appointment.
The state chair of AMELTAN, Elder Bandipo Olusanyan made the demand in Ilorin, the state capital at the association’s 3-days conference
He equally sought for the recruitment and posting of “our members to local government health facilities in the state.
Said he: “Apart from this, the state of art medical equipment purchase, improved staff welfare including prompt payment of salaries, payment of consolidated health salary structure, release of promotion and extension of community health insurance have endeared the governor to our heart.
“The same gesture also extended to smaller health centres, Iwo Cottage Hospital, Omupo Cottage Hospital and Edidi Health Centre are part of good work executed to serve our people.
“We also appreciate the state governor for the sustainable peace and harmony that provides the platform for us all to operate in Kwara state. The massive infrastructural provision and pace of development has helped our association to live up to expectation.”
