The NMA specifically demanded the probe of those accused of diverting relief materials meant for the IDPs.
The NMA President, Prof. Mike Ogirima, stated this in Abuja at the 2016 Physicians’ Week with the theme, "Healthcare delivery in a frail economy: Challenges and way forward."
Ogirima said if the sector is rid of corruption, the insufficient resources available, especially amid the economic recession, will be better utilised to improve healthcare services.
Ogirima said: "We call on the Federal Government to extend the anti-corruption crusade to all other sectors of the economy as it was done in the judiciary arm of the government.
"It is our belief that if this is extended to the health sector, the little resources available in the sector would be properly utilised to improve the affordability and accessibility of healthcare services to Nigerians who are passing through the economic recession."
He also called for the investigation and prosecution of all those who diverted relief materials meant for the Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs) in the north-east.
The NMA also offered free medical services to the 21 Chibok school girls, who were released by their captors, Boko Haram, last week after spending over two years in captivity.
