DSS speaks on dispersing doctors attending Saudi Arabian job interview
The Department of State Services (DSS) has denied dispersing doctors attending a Saudi Arabia-organised job interview.
Recall that the applicants gathered at the Sheraton Hotel in Abuja on Thursday, days after a similar interview.
Peter Afunanya, the DSS Public Relations Officer, in a statement on Friday, said the agency did not target the civilians.
The spokesman said that the section of the media that reported it did not verify.
“No further evidence was also adduced to prove that the DSS carried out such operation at the hotel. It is obvious that the news is only designed to embarrass the organisation,’’ he noted.
The news of the interview sparked outrage. Nigerians are accusing the Federal Government of neglecting the health sector.
In recent years, hundreds of medical professionals left the country to work in countries with better health systems and welfare.
Resident doctors are currently on strike in the wealthiest nation on the African continent.
