Federal Government Is Not Owing Any Doctor, Health Worker Salary – Ngige Fires Back » Naijaloaded

The Federal Government has insisted that no doctor or health worker is being owed salary.

Chris Ngige, the Minister of Labour and Employment, said the Federal Government pays the salaries of doctors and health workers when due.

He stated this during a meeting of the presidential committee on salaries with the Joint Health Sector Union (JOHESU) in Abuja on Tuesday.

The minister said the explanation became necessary to address the members of the National Association of Resident Doctors (NARD).

NARD members are currently on strike over alleged salary irregularities.

However, Ngige said:

“NARD goes about telling Nigerians that the government is owing them salaries, and as well not taking the problems in the health sector seriously. But this is not true. It is incorrect

“No doctor, nurse, pharmacist or any other health worker, including the driver, is owed a monthly salary. Government pays as and when due.

“The truth is that NARD fails to tell Nigerians that their colleagues who are owed salaries are the ones illegally recruited. Therefore, they were neither captured by the Office of the Head of Service of the Federation, nor were their payments provided for by the Budget Office of the Federation.

“Monthly salaries are done as and when due for those legitimately employed by the federal government, but not to those illegally employed or need their appointments regularised and captured in the finances of government for payment.”

NO BE JUJU BE THAT?? Doctors Baffled As Woman Claims She Hasn’t Slept In 40 Years Leaves » Naijaloaded

A woman who says she hasn’t slept in 40 years has left doctors baffled.

Li Zhanying from Henan, China, claimed that she was only five years old when she last got some sleep.

Neighbours have tried to prove her wrong by staying awake on a card-playing marathon in order to tire her out. But the neighbours eventually gave up and went home, with Li still wide awake after several hours.

She even took sleeping pills, hoping it will help her sleep yet she stayed awake, and the strange phenomenon has now made her a local celebrity.

Liu Suoquin, Li’s husband, has also corroborated his wife’s claims. He said that since they got married she would always complete household chores late at night as she couldn’t sleep.

When the couple first started sleeping in the same bed, Li would often exclaim “I can’t sleep!” to her confused husband.

Doctors were initially unable to diagnose Li’s condition when she first sought medical help, reports the Bastille Post.

But now a trip to a specialist sleep centre in Beijing has shed light on her condition.

It turns out Li sleeps, but not like anyone else on the planet.

Brainwave monitors were able to show that she gets no more than 10 minutes of light sleep per day, a statistic that is still staggering. This was only revealed 16 hours into the 48-hour-long monitoring test.

It turns out that she was nodding off whilst talking to her husband, entering a sleepy trance where she could still hold a conversation like someone who is awake.

The phenomenon is very similar to sleepwalking as her body remains fully functional whilst she is technically sleeping.
