Special Presidential Investigation Panel for the Recovery of Public Property, headed by Chief OkoiObono-Obla is talking tough over its assignment to sanitise the system in the incoming year.


 
Obla confirmed to Sunday Tribune that the panel is presently investigating how some public officers acquired  national assets worth billions of naira.

Recently, the panel announced the recovery of 86 exotic vehicles in a warehouse belonging to a director in the Federal Government bureaucracy following an intelligent tip.

Giving an insight into the plan of the panel for the incoming year, Obla said it would move decisively against those suspected to have illegally acquired pubic assets in consonance with the power of the panel to carry out “investigation of the assets of public officers believed to have corruptly enriched themselves or who have contributed towards the economic adversity of the country.”

He said the panel was determined to “recover public assets believed to “have been appropriated, stolen and misappropriated over the years by public officers.”

He noted that the panel was able to achieve some modest achievements in the outgoing year after revving the engine of the panel which had been comatose for years.

“Since the structure of the Panel was in a state coma and limbo for several years, we had to start all over after the Panel was constituted in August 2017.

“The Constitution of the Special Presidential Investigation Panel For the Recovery of Public  Property is the last ditch effort of the administration of President Muhammadu Buhari to fight the cankerworm known as corruption, which has deeply eaten into the fabric of Nigerian society,” he stated.

We have challenges in the area of nursing education, clinical practice and in the regulation of the practice in Nigeria.

In Nursing education, the challenges we have include shortage of people qualified to lecture in the University, Colleges of nursing and School of Nursing and this is limiting the chances of Schools of Nursing to be accredited. Many schools of nursing are losing their accreditation mainly because of manpower and infrastructure and we see this as a limiting factor to the growth of nursing education in Nigeria. We equally see the attitude of government in this regard as not addressing the whole issue. Today, we are at a stage of alarm that demand that government declare an emergency on nursing personnel and this is creating a lot of challenges not only for nursing services but also acting as a clog in the wheel of success of the whole health system. Many years, back, medical education had a lot of attention, including residency training to ensure we have specialists, as you are taking residency, the workforce is boosted, but it has not been able to attain its set objectives because even if you train people in Medicine and you leave the people in nursing, it will not work. You can have the best surgeon in the world, if there is no good nurse to measure up, the result will still be poor.

In the clinical area, there are a lot of challenges that the type of recognition they give to personnel to the issue of preventing nurses training to carry out services from doing their job specifications.

You get to UCH, today, from time immemorial, when you talk about delivery, the midwives must be there and the complicated ones left to the gynaecologist. Both will be doing the work together. But at UCH, many nurses are being prevented to do the work they have been trained to do like in other parts of the world.
