Nigerian Gov’t shuts down Federal Medical Centre Owerri over workers’ indiscipline

After several attempts to reconcile warring parties over disagreement with authorities, federal government on Wednesday shut down the Federal Medical Centre, Owerri, Imo State, over workers indiscipline and rounds of protests from union members who have insisted that the medical director, Dr. Angela Uwakwem, must be removed for allegations levelled against her.

The government also set to do a staff audit of 2,500 employees of the centre so as to ensure proper restoration of services that have been disrupted.
