The Borno State Governor, Prof. Babagana Zulum has approved the immediate recruitment of 52 medical staff amongst them — two doctors, eight nurses and midwives with 42 other supporting 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 to ensure 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 the hospital was in darkness amid deteriorating conditions. He also directed the rehabilitation of the hospital with work now going on.

The Chief Medical Director also visited General Hospitals in Bama, Uba, Lassa, Askira, Chibok, Konduga, and Damboa.
