Zamfara State government has warned doctors and other health workers in the state to desist from absconding from their duty posts or face sanctions.
The State Commissioner for Health, Alhaji Yahya Kanoma, issued the warning in Gusau on Tuesday while receiving members of Bungudu Emirate Council’s Hospital Committee who were on a courtesy visit.
Kanoma expressed dismay with the attitude of some health workers in the State who abandon their duty stations, leaving patients unattended to.
“Any doctor or health worker in the State found absconding from his workplace will be dealt with accordingly.
“The Ministry of Health will deal decisively with any staff found wanting in the discharge of his or her duties,” he said.
Kanoma also added that the State Ministry of Health would collaborate with Hospital’s Committees of the 17 emirates councils in the state with a view to improving health care delivery services.
“The State Ministry of Health will soon implement some policies to bring sanity to the state government-owned hospitals. This is in line with the state government’s policies,” he said.
