Medical Practitioner in Kwara State have lamented the several effects of the hike in fuel prices, affirming that the removal of fuel subsidy and the antecedent hike in the price of fuel have led to an increase in the cost of healthcare services.
Speaking to Royal FM, a medical doctor, Dr Lawal Abdul-lateef said that the hike in fuel prices has led to an increase in the cost of the services that the hospital offers.
Dr. Abdul-lateef noted that despite plans made by hospital administrators to offer better services, their efforts have proved unavailing.
