MINISTRY OF HEALTH DOCTORS THREATENING TO EMBARK ON A SIT DOWN STRIKE OVER A STATEMENT MADE BY THE MINISTEEzra I’mR BUT ISN’T SHE PARTIALLY RIGHT?
Investigated, Analysed and shared by Essa Bokarr SY.
Three weeks or so back we wrote about the way procurement is done at the ministry, therein lamenting on some moves that are closer to corrupt practices than anything transparent.
Although a public notice has been posted on a local newspaper as bidding for the procurement of medicine, we still find that paradoxical. Do you know why? We do because submissions were made and you fully well know that what the Gambian US citizen in the name of MUSA J CEESAY a doctor from Tennessee placed on your desks, is one of the best deals. His prices based on findings are far better than what the Indians and others are offering. You know What? We don’t even know Ceesay in person but people who know him in Tennessee are aware of the artificial blockages he is facing on the ground. In fact for the minister to be threatened with strikes has proven the skeptics right too. Don’t know if the ministry is aware of it but some say the same corrupt clique is behind those threats against her. We equally wonder what the board of governors for medical services under the chairmanship of Dr Sallah of Lamtoro clinic is doing? That board’s culture will be revisited in our subsequent revelations in due course.
R V H and the entire health sector should be seriously looked into as our society is not the least confident that they are doing a good job. How many private clinics feed on these procurements that are supposed to equip our major hospitals?
If a man like Musa J Ceesay from Tennessee can sell medicine to Namibia at a very reasonable rate and it was shipped about two days ago why not patronize your own Gambia? What a shame!
Permanent secretary health are you aware of what will be revealed on you in the very near
Future? Be careful! Baahna.
