Warji General Hospital needs special intervention
Sir: I’m writing with a heavy heart to captivate the attention of the Bauchi State government and other stakeholders to hurriedly come to the aid of the cracked nearly collapsed and dilapidated Warji General Hospital.
The constraint of the Warji General Hospital is extremely worrisome and devastating as it is the only moderate medical facility attending to the need of about 250,000 inhabitants in the area for the last 15 years.
Surprisingly, Warji hospital is lacking in almost every aspect ranging from inadequate beds to insufficient medical attendants, which is the condition in which patients are admitted.
The hospital situation has thrown multiple lives in danger due to the unhealthy environment, poor medical equipment and personnel. Despite the problem bedevilling the hospital, it seems to be their last option when seeking medical attention. Imagine how they live their life with no standard medical facility!
People risk their lives to get into the cracked hospital for medical treatment as a last option, speaking to you, the hospital can collapse any moment from now; this is because the building is badly weakened already. The hospital was at least abandoned for the last 20 years with no single renovation.
Therefore, when you calculate the above years mentioned, one would learn that the hospital is no longer beneficial to the people of the Warji Local Council rather than a hideout of rodents and other dangerous animals.
Nonetheless, if one may recall, the previous administration of Mallam Isa Yuguda and that of Muhammad Abubakar promised to rebuild the hospital but their promises seem to be zilch but political demagogues.
Similarly, the present government has started building a new medical facility in the said area but unfortunately, it has been stopped due to unknown reasons.
As such, hence the need to protect the lives and property of the citizenry, I’m appealing to the state government to come to the aid of the Warji people and continue with the project, this is to save the lives of innocent citizens.
