The hospital’s closure aligns with the ongoing nationwide strike by workers, including health workers.

As reported by Daily Trust, several patients with crucial doctor appointments are now facing severe inconvenience due to the absence of medical staff.

Some of these patients have departed without receiving any information about when their appointments might be rescheduled.

One of the patients, Binta Muhammad, said, “If I had known, I wouldn’t have come out this early. I came out by 6 am and arrived at the hospital around 7 am only to be told that there was nobody to attend to me.

“Now, I am left blinded without any tangible information and rescheduling of my appointment. I will just leave and come back when the strike is called off.”

Meanwhile, a top official at the hospital who spoke anonymously revealed that essential services are still being provided despite the strike.

Additionally, organised labour has closed the Audu Bako State Secretariat, which includes the State House of Assembly, Office of the Head of Service, State High Court, Appeal Court, and various other key ministries.
