Surgeries Postponed after Four-Day Water Scarcity at UCH

A scarcity of water at the University College Hospital (UCH), Ibadan since last Saturday is causing the postponement of some surgeries, FIJ can report.

According to a source, the officials claim the water scarcity is due to some ongoing major repairs within the hospital, but the problem is now affecting patients’ access to healthcare.

In fact, surgeries are currently being postponed as a result of this development.

“I was supposed to be in theatre this week but the surgery has now been postponed by two days because of this water crisis,” a patient told FIJ.

“It is so bad that patients now buy sachets of water to bathe and defecate.”


Water crises in UCH are frequent occurrences, although they happen in parts of the hospital rather than the whole.

In November, journalist ‘Fisayo Soyombo tweeted about the water crisis in the hospital. However, Toye Akinrinlola, Head of the Hospital’s Public Relations Department, subsequently denied the crisis during a phone-in programme on TVC, despite the availability of video evidence.

The development at the UCH comes after President Muhammadu Buhari embarked on yet another trip to the United Kingdom for a “routine medical check-up”.

The phone number of Professor Jesse Otegbayo, Chief Medical Director of the Hospital, was unreachable as of press time, while Akinrinlola did not answer his calls.

shocked








Nigerians has really gone through alot, especially in the hand of this present failed adminstration lead by Jubril Alsundani.


They careless about fixing basic thing like water in hospital, because they know that nothing really concerned them as they will fly out anytime, any moment they want to for medical check-up in London or U. S. A. Jubril is currently on this tour as I'm typing this

Sometimes i think Nigerians deserve the type of leaders they have. How can you see a crook and a failure like Jubril and you still go ahead to vote him. With all these , they haven't learnt anything, as it's certain that the same mistake is sure to happen again in 2023, as i have seen a lot of people drumming support for Thiefnubu already. Thiefnubu that's the worst version of Jubril. Imagine!

I will end this by saying " Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice BIG shame on me"
Nigerians wise up please.

Nigerian would be doomed if a woman is not given an opportunity to govern this country.

Imagine a woman resorting to using sachet water to clean herself after childbirth.

How the hell do you postpone surgery?
Does death postpone date of taking life? Are we all mad in this country?

What if it's an emergency surgery? Will the ailment postpone the effects too? This country is too backwards to be liked by anybody... God forbid...

Meanwhile the president travelled abroad for a scheduled routine two week medical check up.

The joke is on all the citizens of the country, until people wake up, things would be business as usual.

Even though the water scarcity is because of repair work, regardless of that ; alternative would have been provided for such a sensitive health institution if it were to be in a serious and organised country.
