Medical Tourism: Gov Zulum approves employment of 52 medical staff in Gwoza

Borno State Governor, Babagana Umara Zulum has approved the immediate recruitment of 52 medical staff, including two doctors, eight nurses and midwives and 42 other support staff.

Zulum’s approval was disclosed by the Chief Medical Director, Borno State Hospital Management Board, Professor Abubakar Ali Kullima, during a visit to the General Hospital in Gwoza town at the weekend.

The Governor’s approval is in fulfilment of a promise he made, that he was going to address the shortage of medical personnel towards ensuring that the growing healthcare needs of Gwoza’s population can be adequately met.

Zulum, it would be recalled, had paid a midnight visit to the hospital last month, during which he met the hospital in darkness amid deteriorating conditions.

Then, Governor Zulum directed the rehabilitation of the Hospital with work now going on.

Although he was unhappy with the hospital’s condition, the Governor commended the staff who were providing medical services despite poor working conditions.
