Kano State Primary Health Care Management Board, PHCMB, has dismissed a staff at Kurnar Asabe Primary Health Care Centre after being found guilty of rape at the facility.
The board, in a statement signed on Friday by its spokesman, Maikudi Marafa, did not disclose the name of the staff but revealed his staff number as KNLG 32323.
The board added that two staff with staff numbers KNLG 09068 and KNLG 018423 from Gezawa Local Government were expelled after being found guilty of using staff information to obtain loans without their consent.
The other staffer dismissed by the PHCMB, with KNLG 04608 from Gwarzo Local Government, was charged with conducting private practice and abortion.
The board explained that the affected staff were found wanting of “non-pardonable offences” in the rules and regulations governing state civil service.
The board maintained that the decision was taken following recommendations by the Governing Board and the Disciplinary Advisory Committee constituted to investigate the allegations.
According to the statement, upon confirmation of the allegations by the committee, the affected staffers were forthwith relieved of their appointment with the PHCMB.
The statement said: “In its quest to see that all civil servants under its supervision are abiding by the standards of state civil services rules and regulations, the Primary Health Care Management Board has expelled some of its staff that committed one offence or the other.
“PHCMB then called on its staff to always identify and portray positive morality while discharging their official responsibilities.
“PHCMB under Dr. Tijjani Usman will not condone any misconduct from any staff. Staff are expected to carry out their responsibilities diligently, effectively and in accordance with the civil service rules and regulations,” the statement added.
