Gov El Rufai Shuts Govt House Clinic, Redeploys Doctors



In move to boost service delivery of government hospitals in the state, Governor Nasir El-Rufai of Kaduna State has closed down the Government House clinic and transferred the personnel to other government hospitals in the state.



    Drugs and equipment belonging to the clinic have also been transferred to the Yusuf Dansotho Hospital, Tudun Wada, while Government House staff have been directed to make use of the nearest government hospital for their medical treatment.

    This was contained in a statement issued by spokesperson to the governor, Samuel Aruwan.

    “There are not yet 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 clearly more beneficial to the wider society if the services of these medical personnel were made available to the public in a general hospital. In addition, it is better that everyone working in the Government House uses the same health facilities as the general public,” the statement read.

    “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 equipment donated to them,” it added.
