49 Medical Students Placed On Monthly Salaries

Yobe state has added another 49 medical students to its payroll in its bid to improve healthcare delivery in the North-Eastern state

Yobe state has placed another forty-nine (49) medical students on its payroll as it seeks to reposition the healthcare system in the North-Eastern state.

The development was announced in a statement released by the Special Adviser to the Governor on Press Affairs, Abdullahi Bego.

Student Pulse gathered that the students will also be employed on completion of their programs.

“All medical students currently sponsored by the state government will be employed automatically by the government after obtaining their medical degrees,” Bego said.

In June the state announced that it had placed 104 students on salary Grade Level 06, to be "paid the students on a monthly basis until they graduate as doctors."

This brings the number of medical students on the state's payroll to 153, in 2014 alone.
