BREAKING: Speaker, House Of Reps, Gbajabiamila Clash With Buhari’s Minister

SAHARANEWS – The Speaker of House of Representatives, Femi Gbajabiamila, on Thursday, clashed with President Muhammadu Buhari’s Minister for Health, Osagie Ehanire.



SaharaNews reports that trouble started when the Minister who met with the leadership of the national assembly in Abuja on Thursday, said what the doctors are doing is their normal job.


Femi Gbajabiamila, the speaker, had asked the minister if the medical personnel handling coronavirus cases are paid any hazard allowance, to which he responded: “I am not aware of it.”

He added: “It is the standard job they do every day; it is the standard job.”

An apparently furious Gbajabiamila told the minister it is not enough to say he is not aware, and “you dropped the ball”.



Below is the dialogue that ensued between the minister and the speaker at the meeting:

Gbajabiamila: Are they being paid a hazard allowance for the job that they are doing?



Ehanire: I am not aware of it. It is the standard job they do everyday; it is the standard job.

Gbajabiamila: I thought you said coronavirus is novel, how is it a standard job?



Ehanire: Because screening is what you do every day.

Gbajabiamila: They don’t screen for coronavirus every day; they’ve never done it. This is the most infectious disease in the world.



Ehanire: Screening for temperature.

Gbajabiamila: The answer to my question is that they are not being paid hazard allowance.



Ehanire: No, the answer is that I am not aware.
