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.
