Hospital staff suspended by Governor Zulum for abandoning duty.

Borno Governor, Babagana Umara Zulum has reportedly suspended all paid staff, some of them are resident medical doctors, nurses, pharmacists, and lab technicians at the General Hospital in Ngala town.

In  a press statement issued by the state government, the suspension came after Zulum’s unplanned visit on Monday June 1st, proved that the entire staff, had left the hospital to an International non-governmental Organization, fhi360, which was managing hundreds of patients, majority of them IDPs and residents.

Governor Zulum had showed up at the General Hospital in Ngala on an unscheduled visit and didn’t meet any of the doctors or clerical staff, at the hospital

Zulum on his arrival was  received by a field coordinator of fhi360, the iNGO left in control of the hospital.

The Governor without any delay ordered the suspension of all staff on the payroll of Borno Government.

“This is a General Hospital belonging to Borno State Government, unfortunately there is no single state Government staff here to attend to all these patients, and we promptly pay all of them salaries. These humanitarian workers from the iNGO (fhi360) are supposed to complement the state Government staff but not to completely take over the Hospital.

I am directing the Borno State Hospitals Management Board, if there is any staff on the payroll of this Hospital, to immediately suspend all the workers on government payroll. I will be back to this hospital, hoping to see the opposite of what I saw today” He said.
