The goodwill of the Nigerian government towards the populace in Abuja is gradually becoming a source of death to the citizen.
Kuje General Hospital, a government hospital was established to cater for the poor and helpless who cannot afford some of the treatment provided. This prompted the Nigerian government at the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) Abuja to order the hospital authority to perform free caesarean operation (CS) on women while carrying out free antenatal care as well.
This act which went on well before now has suddenly become a looting conduit pipe for the medical doctors who work there, Secrets Reporters has authoritatively learnt. The medical workers who took a sacred oath before being given licensed to practice now collect money for every of such free operation and antenatal care, with refusal to pay spelling doom for the patients.
According to a very reliable source, patients are charged the sum of One Hundred Thousand Naira (N100,000) by the corrupt doctors before they operate on them. A current case under review which we have found out bothers about a woman who has been in the hospital since last week for fibroid operation. The surgery which ought to be free has been charged N100,000 by the fraudulent physicians.
The woman pleaded that she should be allowed to pay the sum of forty thousand Naira which they refused to collect, which has kept her still lying down on the hospital bed, pending when they have ‘mercy’ on her.
Another pathetic case is that of a woman lying down on the post natal ward who had a CS operation. In order to collect money from her husband since the operation is free, we gathered that they told the husband that she has appendectomy and needs a surgery, which must be paid for. The money which was paid for was never paid into the hospital account, but the private purse of doctors.
This fraud we gathered is not without the connivance of the Medical Director, Dr (Mrs) Tambundu who allegedly shares the proceed of the loot with her.
