The Association Of Resident Doctors, General Hospital Ilorin, (ARD-GHI) have appealed to the Gov. Abdulrahman AbdulRazaq, of Kwara on the need for more medical staff at the facility.

The association made the call on Tuesday in Ilorin in their Sallah goodwill message to the Governor, jointly signed by Dr Usman Abubakar, the President and Dr Audu Charles, the Secretary, ARD-GHI, Ilorin.

The duo stated that there is an acute shortage of medical staff in the hospital, which has hindered services rendered in some departments of the hospital.

According to the doctors, since the General Hospital, Ilorin is now a Teaching Hospital, it has become pertinent to address germane issues which will help the Teaching Hospital take off successfully and allow it to have smooth operations for the benefit of all in Kwara.

The doctors however, congratulated AbdulRazaq on milestone achievements of the administration, especially on matters of health on malaria control and passage of Kwara State Teaching Hospital Bill among other laudable achievements.

“While congratulating you, on these achievements, we want you not to relent, on your commendable efforts to make Kwara a shining star amongst other States in the country,” they said.

The association also pointed out the issue of the Medical Residency Training Act, (MRTA), which has come of age to domesticate the Act

“This will allow the Resident doctors in the State to have better research and training opportunities in order for them to offer the best medical services to the people.

“We know as our leader you will help look into them as they require very urgent attention,” they said.

“The entire members of the Association heartily wish Gov. Abdulrahaman Abdrazaq, Barka da Sallah as we celebrate this year’s Eid Adha,” they said.

The resident doctors also extends the sallah greetings to other members of the state government cabinets on health matters.
