Residents of Bong Mines in Fuamah District, Lower Bong County, are said to be rejecting a Nigerian Doctor assigned at the Bong Mines Hospital in Fuamah District.

The Fuamah District inhabitants are expressing bitterness over the assignment of the Nigerian Doctor, Francis Obeyarsee, who is currently assigned at the Bong Mines Hospital, accusing him of collecting unofficial fees from them.

According to our Bong County Correspondent (Patrick S. Tokpah), the citizens are also accusing the Nigerian Doctor of not discharging his duty professionally at the health facility.

The citizens alleged that Dr. Obeyarsee often solicits money from patients in order to conduct surgery and other medical works that should be free of charge at the hospital.

Our Correspondent who visited Fuamah District including the Bong Mines Hospital recently disclosed that the citizens have stated that if the Ministry of Health does not remove Doctor Francis Obeyarsee from the hospital, they will take a ‘radical approach.’

The citizens did not explain the “radical approach’ they threatened to take if their quest is not adhered to by the relevant authorities of the Ministry of Health.

The Bong Mines Hospital in Fuamah District has two Medical Doctors, including Doctor Alexander Togbah and Dr. Francis Obeyarsee.

The Bong County District number seven residents also called on the national government, through the Minister of health, Dr. Wilhelmina Jallah, and the Chief Medical Officer of Liberia (CMO), Dr. Francis Nah Ketteh, to reassign Dr. Obeyasee to another health center in the country.
