Governor of Borno State Governor, Prof Umara Zulum paid a surprise visit to Umaru Shehu Ultra Modern Hospital and the State Specialist hospital. The staff of the clinics were not expecting the visit and obviously were not prepared ahead.
When the governor got to Umaru Shehu Ultra Modern Hospital, he met patients in pathetic condition and could not find a single doctor on duty. As a result of their absence, Prof Zulum had to place a call to all the 10 medical Doctors on duty, but none of them answered the call not knowing it was the Governor that was calling.
He met only 10 nurses were found on duty out of about 138 nurses on the payroll. The Governor went round all the wards to see the situations of the patients and later requested for the hospital’s staff pay book and made role call.
But when the governor got to State Specialist Hospital, he met few medical doctors on duty. The Governor still however, complained about the quality of services rendered at both Hospitals.
