The NMA kogi state stated that people residing in the community who urgently need healthcare services at the hospital, are hoping that the Minister of health, Dr Osagie Ehanire will re-open the Federal Medical Centre very soon.

The appeal for reopening the centre was contained in a document signed by the state Chairman of the Nigerian Medical Association Oyiguh Omakoji, and the state Secretary of the Association Dr Famotele.

Recall that the medical centre was closed down on July 1, following the invasion of armed hoodlums in the facility and the disruption of a press conference at the hospital.

This situation which caused the vandalisation of properties belonging to the hospital necessitated the lockdown of the hospital which is the only hospital attached to tertiary institution in the state.
