The governor paid a surprise visit to the hospital
According to a report by The Nation, there is serious panic and anxiety among doctors on the employment of Borno State Government following the late night visit of Gov. Babagana Zulum on Monday to hospitals within Maiduguri metropolis.
Many of them, especially those on duty call who couldn’t respond to the governor’s anonymous distress calls, are particularly bothered over the fate that awaits them.
Gov. Zulum at about 1:00am on Tuesday paid an unscheduled visit to Umaru Shehu Ultra Modern Hospital as well as the State Specialist Hospital Maiduguri where he found no doctor on duty.
The Nation checks revealed at the Umaru Shehu Ultra Modern Hospital all the 10 medical doctors scheduled to be on duty were absent.
“The governor called all the ten doctors on call at the Hospital here but none of them answered him. I think they thought that it was an ordinary patient on emergency disturbing them,” a source at the hospital informed.
At the State Specialist Hospital, some few doctors were on duty when he walked into the hospital.
Zulum was said to be visibly dissatisfied with what he saw on ground at the hospitals he visited.
