Yobe state has added another 49 medical students to its payroll in its bid to improve healthcare delivery 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.
