Fanwo said the Chief Medical Director of State Specialist Hospital, Dr Ahmed Attah, was suspended on February 7 for similar infraction.
“The governor was irked by their failure to comply with the new financial directive,” he said.
Fanwo explained that the governor had, at a meeting with heads of MDAs, warned that any disobedience to the directive would not be tolerated. He dismissed insinuations that the governor’s action was political, saying it was purely administrative.
