Niger governor decries dirty hospitals

Nigerian News Update » Nigerian Newspapers

Niger State Governor Abubakar Sani Bello has decried the unhygienic state of some hospitals in the state.
The governor spoke when he visited Shehu Shagari Hospital, Nasko.
He said: “I am disappointed with the level of hygiene in this hospital. If the consulting room is this bad, I do not want to go round the hospital because I do not want to see more frustrating things.
“If a doctor’s consulting room can be left unkempt, with cobwebs and a dirty toilet, I wonder how the entire hospital will look like. I am disappointed with what I am seeing now. Only God knows how the wards will look.

“If this hospital belongs to any of the doctors, will they allow it be in this unkempt state?
“It is high time public servants know the system of governance has changed. There is no room for indolence. This administration has zero tolerance for indolent workers”.
The governor directed the Commissioner for Health and Hospital Services, Dr. Mustapha Jibril, to look into the situation and ensure proper maintenance of the facility.
Bello also dispelled rumours that his administration planned to shut down the School of Nursing in Bida. He was shocked at the rumours alleging that the government intends to close down the school to establish a similar one in Kontagora.

“Nobody can close the School of Nursing, Bida; only God can. The schools in Bida and Minna are not enough. We should have more schools to produce more nurses and midwives for our hospitals.
“How can one contemplate closing the school when we are short of nurses? We should be careful with the messages we spread. Those spreading this rumour are not lovers of the state,” Bello added.
He promised that his administration will rehabilitate the school, noting that the delay was due to some technicalities.
