Why Kano sacked three health workers, suspended others Published By: Paul Dada

The Kano State Hospitals Management Board has explained why it sacked three staff members of Kabo General Hospital and suspended three others.

A statement by the Public Relations Officer of the Hospitals Management Board, Samira Suleiman, said they were punished because they engaged in extortion.

The statement said the sacking and suspension of the affected staff were approved by the Executive Secretary of the board, Dr. Mansur Nagoda, after an unscheduled visit to the facility.

The statement said that the three officers of the X-ray unit were caught charging patients N12,000 for X-rays instead approved hospital price of N2,000.

The statement said: “The Executive Secretary of the board approved the immediate dismissal of the three officers on grounds of extortion of patients.

“Also, the Executive Secretary approved the suspension of the Accountant, Auditor, and Head of the laboratory for selling free HIV test kits given to facilities by the state government and were asked to report to the board headquarters for further disciplinary actions.

‘’Furthermore, the ES explained that the Labour ward was not in good condition, had no bed sheets on the beds, absence of compound officers, dumped equipment which was donated four years ago, as well as dumped COVID-19 items donated to the facility.

“The Executive Secretary, who vowed not to spare any staff found wanting, said the decision made against the affected workers should serve as a deterrent to others.

“We took an oath, so we will stick to that oath and sanitise the system.

‘’It is sad that after the state government made sure that each and every health worker is on the CONHESS salary scale, they are still exploiting innocent patients”.
