Dear Governor Kashim Shettima.

– Did you know that for 4 years & some months, almost 5 years now
BORNO state government has not supplied drugs to the Hospitals Management Board.

– Did you know that there isn’t a single functional x-ray machine in the state government hospitals? (Up to 3 weeks ago at least)

– Did you know that sick people from the “IDP camps” seen and referred by NGO camp clinics to the 3 designated referral hoapitals in Maiduguri are often turned away because of
i. Lack of bedspace
ii. Lack of drugs
iii. Lack of surgery materials
iv. Lack of money to treat patients without presenting cash.

Some have died.

– Did you know that the state govt has not supplied drugs to the “idp camps” nor posted adequate number of healthworkers despite the many on givt payroll sitting at home doing nothing.

Do you know how much your government has budgetted for health?
Do you know these things?

Do you know?

Ya Kashim!
Mai Borno! Laa haula wa laa quwwata illa billah.

What a calamity.
