The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, has tackled  the Minister of Health, Osagie Ehanire over the poor hazard allowance being paid Nigerian doctors.

Gbajabiamila attacked the minister for saying he is not aware if doctors and other health practitioners tackling COVID-19, are paid hazard allowance.

Ehanire, who met with the National Assembly leadership in Abuja on Thursday, claimed that what the doctors are doing is routine.

Gbajabiamila had asked the Minister if the medical personnel handling Coronavirus cases were paid any hazard allowance.

Ehanire replied: “I am not aware of it,” adding that “it is the standard job they do every day; it is the standard job.”

Gbajabiamila angrily fired back, saying, “you dropped the ball”.

Nigerian medical doctors earn a monthly hazard allowance of N5,000.
