Governor Babagana Umara storms state hospitals
Doctors in Borno state left the Governor, Babagana Umara, dumfounded after he discovered there were no doctors on duty when he visited some hospitals on Tuesday midnight.
Concise News gathered that Umara was stunned when he paid a surprise visit to some hospitals in Maiduguri, the state capital, as at 1 am.
It was learned that he had only gone to inspect the condition of patients and the facilities, but found none of them on duty.
The hospital with about 135 medical staff only had 10 nurses on duty, while the 19 resident doctors were nowhere to be found.
Only a few were available at the state specialists’ hospital when the governor visited at 2 am.
The chief medical director of the Umaru Shehu Ultra-Modern Hospital was reportedly queried over the absence of doctors on duty.
