Don't neglect patients - Governor Masari warns health workers


Governor Aminu Masari of Katsina State has warned health workers in the state not to ignore patients in critical condition.

Masari gave the warning on Wednesday in Katsina in his address at the induction course organized for newly recruited health personnel in the state.

The governor expressed unhappiness with midwives and nurses who maltreat pregnant women who came to deliver babies in hospitals.

He also frowned at health personnel who neglect and refuse to give proper medical care to accident victims.

Masari reminded the health workers that they stand to reap two rewards if they diligently performed their duties.

“You will be rewarded here and in the hereafter if you do good.

“You are employed based on merit and therefore nobody should hold patients to ransom,” he warned.

The governor urged the health workers to assist his administration in providing good healthcare services to people.

He said that the government was currently rehabilitating and upgrading hospitals in Katsina, Daura and Funtua Local Government Areas.

Masari said the government had also installed modern equipment at Amadi Rimi Specialist Hospital to provide the much-needed services to the people.

Earlier, the Commissioner for Health, Hajiya Mariyatu Bala-Usman, said that over 500 staff were recruited to boost health care services in the state.

She warned the workers to avoid truancy, saying the government would not condone such acts.



  1. Sometimes they talk as if they Care… they are developing the hospitals but once they fall sick the hospital that they have developed won’t be good enough to treat them instead they fly abroad arrant nonsense. Am not in support of midwife and nurses mistreating the pregnant woman but most of the reasons is that what they earn is a token compared to the stress they pass trough. WITH ADELOVE.COM LONLINESS IS JUST A STORY…..

  2. Well, I don’t believe that the nurses are ill treating the patients but don’t forget that a hungry man is an angry man, pay them well and u will see positive change, sometimes I regret why I waste my time going to school in a country when u come out an agbero is better than u, because u have spent greatly to receive nothing
