The Executive Secretary of the Kano State Hospitals Management Board, Dr. Mansur Nagoda, has approved the removal of the Chief Medical Officers of Imam Wali General Hospital, Abubakar Imam Urology Centre and Nuhu Bamalli Maternity Hospital and replaced them with immediate effect.
Similarly, Nagoda has also approved the suspension of all doctors and nurses that were on duty for the evening and night shifts on Sunday, July 30, 2023.
This was contained in a statement issued by the Board’s Public Relations Officer, Samira Sulaiman, and made available to newsmen on Monday night.
According to the Executive Secretary, the decision was taken as a matter of urgency due to the negligence of the affected staff in carrying out their duties by absconding from their duty posts and leaving patients in the hands of students.
He warned that the Board would not condone negligence, late-coming, absconding from duty posts from any medical worker, adding that anyone found wanting would face sanctions in accordance with the civil service rules and regulations.
Nagoda called on other hospitals to buckle up as all facilities would be monitored closely in order to revive the health sector of the state
