FG Threatens to Shutdown Unregistered Medical Labs

The Minister of State for Health, Joseph Ekumankama, says the Federal Government would shut down unregistered medical laboratories in the country.

This is as he charged the Management and staff of the Medical Laboratory Science Council of Nigeria not to relent or rest on their oars in the discharge of their statutory duties.

The Minister gave the charge when members of the Council led by the Registrar, Dr. Tosan Erhabor, paid him a courtesy visit at the Ministry of Health Headquarters in Abuja.

In a statement made available today by the Director of Press, Ahmed Chindaya, the Minister noted that policies would be formulated to ensure smooth running of the council.

The statement added that the Minister, who was appreciative of the visit, assured the team of the support and backing of the Ministry in accomplishing the mandate and responsibilities of the Council.

He said moving forward, all hospitals under the Federal Ministry of Health will be the first set of hospitals to implement the full provisions of the law, which will be followed by laboratories in the state hospitals.

With this, the Minister said, Medical laboratories not registered with the MLSCN will be shut down.
