Job Racketeering: FMC Keffi sacks two staff, suspends others

The Management of the Federal Medical Centre, FMC, Keffi, has sacked two of its staff and suspended others over job racketeering.

The Chief Medical Director, CMD, of the hospital, Yahaya Adamu, disclosed this in an interview with newsmen on Friday in Keffi.

He said when the allegation was reported to the management, it immediately constituted a committee to investigate the matter, adding that those found wanting were handed over to its Disciplinary Committee on Senior Staff Affairs for further action.

He pointed out that the committee, headed by himself, had statutory membership with a representative of the Minister of Health and various health unions as observers.

“The investigation was done in the open and having concluded our work we forwarded our recommendations to the minister since the board of the hospital is yet to be constituted.

“The recommendations were modified and a final position was taken over all those accused of job racketeering and others accused of committing other offences.

“Nine staff were affected and all of them were tried based on their levels of involvement. Only one of them was found not guilty,” he said.
