In a bid to revive all health sectors in the state, the Kano state Hospitals Management Board have been carrying out an unscheduled visit to hospitals under it’s care and has found the Chief Medical Director wanting and deposed with immediate effect.

The decision was taken after a long deliberation with the Commissioner of Health Dr. Abubakar Yusuf Labaran and the Executive Secretary Kano state Hospitals Management Board Dr. Mansur Mudi Nagoda after failing to organize staff as well as implement the proclaimed government policies of free consultation, admission and treatment.

Kano State Governor Engr Abba Kabir Yusuf has on several occasions visited the facility mostly at mid-night and still found the facility in an unfavorable state urging that corrections should be implemented but still it remained the same.

Dr. Nagoda lamented that the CMD lacks capacity to manage human resources, render satisfactory hospital administration despite been a consultant in the field of paediatrics adding that he was not proactive in anyway and does not seem to demonstrate any sign of leadership.

The Executive Secretary further said that they meet two wards upstairs closed despite adequate staffing, in addition to the ground floor been full, patients managed on pathways which is an act of sabotage.

In addition, a breech of proclamation of government policy of free treatment, drugs, a basic investigation are paid and receipted. He was also given two weeks to set the lab into action but still not functioning leaving patients with no other option than to run test in other labs outside the facility.

Dr. Nagoda explained that these were the compelling reasons which mandated the board and ministry to post Dr. Ibrahim Ibni Muhammad an experience administrator and paediatrician to take over as the CMD as well as deploying two senior consultants Dr. Jamila Sani and Dr. Aisha Yahaya to establish and run a specialist clinic in the facility.
