JUTH Workers Demand Better Welfare from New Chief Medical Director

Staff of the Jos University Teaching Hospital (JUTH) has demanded for better welfare from its new Chief Medical Director (CMD) following the exit of former CMD, Professor Edmund Banwat of the same hospital.

According to reports, the hospital staff were seen carrying different placard with boldly written words, celebrating the exit of Professor Banwat, describing his eight year tenure as CMD as a disaster.

During what seems to be a “protest-like celebration”, the Secretary of the Joint Health Sector Unions (JOHESSU), JUTH branch, David Atu, said that they (the union) were happy because the tenure of the former CMD had ended saying that during his reign, staff’s welfare were not prioritised while the fortunes of the hospital known for execllence deteriorated to quite a disturbing level.

The labour leader further called on the new Acting CMD, Dr. Pokop Bupwatda not to follow the style of the former CMD in administering the hospital.
