Fayose warns EKSUTH management against sabotage


Ekiti State Governor, Ayo Fayose, has warned the management of Ekiti State University Teaching Hospital (EKSUTH) against any act that could jeopardise the efforts of his administration to reposition the institution.

The governor hinted that his administration would overhaul facilities and provide the manpower at the institution to make it be at par with similar institutions in the country and even globally.

In a statement by his Chief Press Secretary, Idowu Adelusi, in Ado-Ekiti, the governor decried the current state of facilities at the hospital.

Fayose, who said members of the Transition Committee he put in place before his inauguration had given him an insight into the state of the hospital, noted that a teaching hospital must not exist in name only.

“A situation whereby a teaching hospital has only one functional ambulance is uncalled for. What happens if there is more than one emergency case to handle at the same time?

“Also, the x-ray machine there has broken down. Patients have to go to private facilities to have x-ray photographs taken and that is a shame. The wards are also not fixed with fans.

“Patients are not treated in a comfortable atmosphere and we are not only going to ensure that the place is provided with the necessary facilities, we are going to provide the workers with the tools they need to work and motivate them appropriately.


“All efforts to get the College of Medicine run smoothly will be taken and done. Medical students in the hospital have nothing to fear. Our administration will not let them down,” he said.


The governor advised the management of the hospital to also live up to expectations by judiciously using the resources at their disposal.
