Medical doctors in the habit of doing side hustle will have to start looking for other means.

The Federal Government has started the process that will lead to stopping doctors in public service from engaging in private practice.

The Minister of Health, Isaac Adewole, who briefed State House Correspondents alongside his Labour and Productivity counterpart, Chris Ngige, said this was the decision of the Federal Executive Council meeting presided over by President Muhammadu Buhari on Wednesday.

Meanwhile the House of Representatives has summoned the Health minister over the outbreak of Monkeypox.

The lawmakers invited Adewole to explain the measures taken by the Federal Government to tackle the outbreak and spread of the disease.

The invitation followed a motion moved under matters of privilege by Diri Douye from Bayelsa State where the disease was first reported.
