Video: I don’t know if doctors are being paid Covid-19 hazard allowance – Health Minister Ehanire

Minister of health, Osagie Ehanire has said he doesn’t know if medical doctors and other health practitioners managing COVID-19 patients in Nigeria are being paid any hazard allowance.

Ehanire said this while responding to questions from the leadership of the national assembly during their meeting on Thursday in Abuja.

The meeting held between the lawmakers and the members of the presidential task force on COVID-19 to discuss relevant issues regarding the pandemic in the country.

Ehanire opined that what the doctors are doing is their routine job.

Femi Gbajabiamila, the speaker, had asked the minister if the medical personnel handling coronavirus cases are paid any hazard allowance, to which he responded: “I am not aware of it.”

He added: “It is the standard job they do every day; it is the standard job.”

Gbajabiamila who was apparently disappointed in the response, told the minister it is not enough to say he is not aware, and “you dropped the ball”.
