Governor El-Rufai Lied, Oxygen Wasn’t Removed From Our Baby
It has been revealed that Governor Nasir El-Rufai lied when he said that the oxygen mask of a child was disconnected by protesting workers at Barau Dikko Hospital.
According to PeoplesGazette, one of the parents told NTA that the baby was hale and hearty.
“Even then, the oxygen was not in her mouth because they said she was stable at that moment. We were the ones that emphasised that we have to carry our baby to another hospital,” the father said.
Mr El-Rufai’s government on Tuesday said it had forwarded names of three nurses involved in the purported oxygen mask removal to the Ministry of Justice.
Labour unions in the state on Monday began a five-day warning strike over the mass sacking of local government workers.
Commercial banks, transporters, traders, petrol station attendants, and others also withdrew their services to join the protest.
Major parts of Kaduna are experiencing a power outage due to the strike. Airports have also been grounded, with hospitals, schools, and other sectors on lockdown.
The governor on Tuesday declared the president of the Nigeria Labour Congress Ayuba Wabba and other executives wanted for alleged economic sabotage.
Mr El-Rufai also ordered the Ministry of Health to compile names of nurses below grade level 14 participating in the ongoing strike for dismissal.
