For the Attention Governor Abiodun of Ogun state: Clean up OOUTH And restore her dying glory now
The Abuse of Nurses @ Olabisi Onabanjo University Teaching Hospital, OOUTH and the travesty, via illegal termination of the appointments of those who seek redress by its repressive Jim Crow management is fast becoming a popular scandal with ominous consequences on the immediate, near and distant future perception of the hospital by the generality of Nigerian nurses and how they relate to it when job vacancies about it for career nurses are posted.
An urgent intervention by you, the Ogun state Governor is need to arrest the moral, ethical, administrative and professional decadence going on there with special reference to the nursing services where two nurse-despots, the Deputy Director of Nursing services and the chief Nursing officer in charge of patient care are reigning with atrocious impunity because, according to insiders, they boast that they are untouchable as they are politically connected to the levers of power at the highest level in Ogun state.
READ THIS: SAVE MY SOUL AGAINST RIGHTS VIOLATIONS / UNLAWFUL TERMINATION OF MY APPOINTMENT BY OOUTH MANAGEMENT BEFORE IT IS TOO LATE
Mr Governor sir, i can tell you without mincing words, that the nurses at what is supposed to be a star hospital in your state are repressed and dangerously demoralized from suffocating under the heavy knees of its DDNS and Chief Nursing Officer in charge of patient care while the chief medical Director watch helplessly for inexplicable reasons even though he allegedly admitted that the ridiculous and controversial termination of the appointments of Nurses Prince Tega and Aishat Olufunke Ajiboal was wrong as the power to do so rested with the hospital’s board.
Prince Tega has already taken his case to the industrial arbitration court, and i see Nur Aishat Ajibola heading to that same court to seek redress with damages which the state will pay for from its resources especially at these trying and uncertain moments in our country’s journey if the get judgment in their favors which is most likely, taking cognizance of the inconsistencies surrounding the termination of their appointments because of the tyranny of some dysfunctional management staff.
I hope you act fast before an incalculable damage is done to the image of an hospital established in honor of a great man whose good name must remain immaculate in line with what he lived and died for.
Above all, it is risky and unpardonable to expose Nigerians, especially the good people of your state to the dangers of being placed in the hands of repressed and demorized nurses.
I am using this medium and opportunity to call on the good people of Ogun state to rise the ⁿoccasion by calling on their Governor to act without further delay and end the erosion of integrity tyranny at OOUTH.
