It was further gathered that Pregnant women in Antenatal wards were dumped in a terrible rooms without ceiling fans or any form of ventilation.

Reports indicated that the Neonatal ward lacks water and clean toilets hence the good hygiene is completely lacking in the hospital.

The patients however appealed to Governor Muhammad Umar Bago to as a matter of urgency pay unscheduled visit to the hospital and see things for himself to ensure that the needful is done to save the lives of the pregnant womem in the state.

It was reliably informed that some of the Doctor’s in the general hospital Minna usually preferred to refer patients to their private hospitals for proper attention and medication hence the lakadascal attitude of the medical workers across major units of the general hospital in Minna.
