UNIVERSITY OF UYO TEACHING HOSPITAL (UUTH) CMD SHUTS SHUT DOWN ELECTRICITY TO MAKE NMA STRIKE EFFECTIVE.

Fejiro Oliver

Reliable information reaching us from Uyo, capital city of Akwa Ibom State is that the Federal Government owned University of Uyo Teaching Hospital (UUTH) has being plunged into entire darkness.


We gathered that the Chief Medical Director of the hospital, Mr Peter Etete directed the CMAC to pass a circular round the hospital directing that the generating set which supply power to the wards and various clinical departments should not be switched on again, noting that they have not been generating revenue since Nigerian Medical Association (NMA) which the CMD and CMAC belongs are on strike.
According to one of our source, the wards are always in darkness with the Nurses sleeping there while patients on admission groan under the harsh condition. The Orthopedic unit where patients are lying helpless are the worst hit as they need fan to enable some of the pains they feel go away.
Findings reveal that the decision was carried out following a secret meeting held between the CMD and the few NMA members where it was agreed that the only way to make the strike effective was to render other workers and departments useless. The Physiotherapy department we authoritatively gathered has been working as if there is no strike, with all their patients coming for treatment, while the ones in the ward are also being treated. The circular which is now in effect will therefore cripple their activities as most of the machines used for treatment work with power.
UUTH has N4.675 Billion as her budget for 2014 with N22.294 million allocated for the procurement of a dedicated 100KVA generator which is yet to be bought.

  1. The CMD is not a good leader and should be remove from office from given an order. I call on federal government to remove d CMD and it will serve as a lesson for others not to be selfish and self centered. note

  2. These are the type of people that want be leading others fairly, how do you want others to have confidence in you. You are now paying for it.

  3. This report is obviously fictitious. Does this mean that the "consultant" nurses and physiotherapist now see and admit patients under their care. Na lie. I can only conclude that money have changed hands for this report.

  4. My people,this is just the same with Federal Teaching hospital Abakaliki though we don't know the reason behind the blackouts we have there.Other hospitals were the NMA's strike affects should investigate well to know if they are all playing out the same scenario.

  5. This is why I want management of the hospitals to be handled by Health Administrators who are non-members of any of the warring professions in the health sector. With such people as the CEOs of our Teaching Hospitals, this kind of nonsense cannot be seen and they can easily give powers to other Health Professionals than Medical Doctors to admit patients,carry out their lawful duties and discharge the patients without any disruption from any quarter. The only thing needed here is to remove the leadership of Nigerian public hospitals from the hands of Medical Doctors and every other thing will naturally take its right shape. The government needs to act on this now to save Nigerians from evil machinations of these egocentric Doctors trained in Nigeria.

  6. doctors remains d head of d health team. U guys u shuld go to hail.

  7. Well, if no one has told you(Secret Reporter) that you re preparing your way to jail, or @ best, on your way to self-destruct; now you re advised against libelous stories like this one.
    You want to be like Sahara Reporters or maybe Julius Assange of Nigeria, Thats fine but ask how they do it.Desist from libels, dont run a rumour mill!
    Take it easy.

  8. @Fejiro Oliver your indeed a cheap press man. Your so worthless. You don't worth your salt. This is a big lie. Those of us working there doctors or not can attest to dat fact
