Governor Zulum Umara of Borno State paid an impromptu visit to two state hospitals in Maiduguri in the midnight and was disappointed at the shocking state he met the hospitals and patients.
The Governor’s unannounced visit exposed all 10 doctors of Umaru Shehu Ultra Modern Hospital, who were supposed to be on duty that night but were absent, leaving the patients in pathetic conditions with no doctor to attend to them. Of all 138 nurses on the hospital’s payroll also, only 10 were found on duty. The Governor placed a call to the absent doctors to demand an emergency service but none of them answered the phones.

Heading to the State Specialist Hospital that same midnight, Governor Zulum met a few medical doctors on duty, whose general service he complained was substandard. The medical doctors in the government owned hospitals are now jittery over the disciplinary measures that will be applied to them as they were caught redhanded.

To crown his night of surprises, the Governor also visited the Hajj Camp at 3:00am where he again was shocked at the shambolic screening of pilgrims.
