President Muhammadu Buhari has okayed the White Paper which among others will bar Public Sector Medical Doctors (MBSS) from Owning Private Hospitals of their own.

The Minister of Labour and Productivity, Chief Chris Ngige disclosed this Wednesday after the Federal Executive Council (FEC) meeting.

He said a situation where a Medical Doctor in a Public Hospital comes to work once in a week but stays at his Private Hospital throughout the week can no longer be acceptable.

The White Paper Bars Public Sector Doctors from Owning Private Hospitals while still on the Payroll of the Government.

The move is a way of ensuring improved health service delivery in the country and to allow for value for money for the government which spends billions of naira in payment of salaries to doctors every month.
