Lagos - Sokoto State Governor, Aminu Tambuwal, has warned workers at the Murtala Muhammed State Specialist Hospital against dereliction of duty.
This follows an unscheduled visit to the hospital in Sokoto where he lamented the condition of patients.
He thus warned that government would not tolerate laxity from any of its workers.
It is said the visit on Sunday caught the few workers on duty unaware.
Tambuwal’s spokesperson, Imam Imam, said upon entering the hospital, the governor observed that there was no electricity supply while many patients, who could not withstand the heat in their wards, lay down outside the designated wards.

“After going round the dark complex for 30 minutes to assess things for himself, Tambuwal was then recognized by a few of the staff on duty. Upon noticing his presence, the generator set was quickly powered on while the staff made attempts to hurry the patients into the rooms," Imam said.
After speaking to the patients and wishing them quick recovery, Tambuwal assured them government would not compromise their health needs.
He said unscheduled visits to government agencies at odd hours would continue so as to acquaint himself with how workers fulfilled their obligations to the people.
