***Redeploys Medical Personnel To Public Hospitals –
Kaduna State governor, Nasir El-Rufai, has shut down the Government House Clinic and redeployed its medical personnel to public hospitals in the state.
This was announced by the Special Assistant to the Governor on Media and Publicity, Samuel Aruwan on Sunday.
Aruwan, in a statement said the drugs and medical equipment in the clinic have been moved to the Yusuf Danstoho Hospital in Tudun Wada.
The statement quoted El-Rufai as saying: “Medical personnel from the Government House Clinic have been redeployed to public hospitals in the state.
“There are not enough doctors in the public health system in Kaduna State.
“Therefore, it is not prudent to assign doctors, nurses, and other medical staff to serve Government House alone.”
“It is better that everyone working in the Government House uses the same health facilities as the general public
The statement, therefore, directed Government House members of staff to henceforth use the Yusuf Danstoho Hospital for their medical needs.
“From now on, all Government House staff requiring medical services will proceed to the nearest public hospital to the Government House like other citizens of the State.
“It is expected that the management of the public hospitals will make good use of the medical personnel, drugs and equipments donated to them,” the statement added.
