National Hospital claims Kano anti-graft boss presented fake medical records to Assembly

The National Hospital has said that the medical record presented by suspended chairman of the Kano State Public Complaints and Anti-Corruption Commission (PCACC), Muhuyi Magaji Rimin Gado is fake.

The Kano State House of Assembly had earlier invited Rimin Gado to appear before its ad-hoc committee investigating a petition against him on Wednesday July 14, 2021.

But Gado failed to appear before the state house of assembly ad-hoc committee citing health grounds. He attached medical records as reason for failing to appear before the committee.

However after the state house of assembly demanded a certified true copy from the national hospital, the hospital said “there is no patient named Muhuyi Magaji in our hospital record and no folder was opened in that name.”

The letter dated July 19, 2021 with reference number NHA/CMAC/GC/0117/2021/V.I/01, read, “Following your request on the above, and the subsequent investigations, we wish to state the following findings. That there is no patient named Muhuyi Magaji in our hospital record and no folder was opened in that name.

“That by our records, the name and signature of doctor (Dr. Bayo) on the Medical Report does not belong to any staff of the National Hospital, Abuja.

“Laboratory investigations in the National Hospital are no longer manually written on paper but electronically transmitted.

“In the light of the above, Sir, the Medical Report/documents, which you attached its photocopies are NOT authentic.”
