Gov. Zulum suspends four Borno medical doctors over absenteeism, lying

Govenor Babagan Umara Zulum of Borno State on Sunday suspended three medical doctors found to be absent on duty at the General Hospital in Biu local government area.

Another doctor was also suspended for trying to cover for the absentee doctors.

The Governor handed down the suspension during an unscheduled visit to the General Hospital to obtain first-hand knowledge of their operations as part of his tour of all local government areas in the state.

“I have earlier stated that my administration will not condone the culture of absenteeism, indolence, indiscipline and nepotism in the public service.

“We are working for the people, not the people working for us, we must value their time and respect their resources therefore lack of punctuality will not be accepted,” the governor warned.

He declared that prudent management of public funds, transparency and accountability will be the guiding principles of his administration.
