As the state Primary Healthcare Development Agency’s recruitment of 1000 health workers enters its third week, applicants across the state have lauded the entire online exercise, saying it is more credible and it is in line with global best practices.
They also lauded the Cross River State Governor, Senator (Prof) Ben Ayade for keeping to his promise of employing 1000 to fill the existing shortage of workforce in the primary healthcare sector across the state. They described him as one who is passionate about the health being of his subjects and also, one who does not want his subjects to go to bed with empty stomach.
One of the applicants who spoke with one of staff said, she was very happy with the online application procedures. She further stated that, the simple nature of the application makes it easier for them.
In another similar development, another applicant from Abi said the exercise is one of the best recruitment exercise he has ever seen. “There is nothing like the portal crashed, everything is smooth sailing, no wonder the DG took her time to ensure everything is perfect before launching out the portal. God will bless her”
It would be recalled that the Cross River State Primary Healthcare Development Agency Director General, Dr. Betta Edu had officially on the 1st of January, 2019 at noon, launched the recruitment portal where she also made a press release warning prospective applicants to be wary of fraudsters who poses as recruitment agents in guise of collecting monies to process their applications.
She further stated that anyone who gives money to anyone be it staff of the agency, does so at his own risk. Saying that, the application is strictly free and it is online. Only successful applicants would be invited for examination and interview.
A review of the exercise reveals that over 5000 applicants have so far applied against 1000 slots across the state.
