After leaked memo, UCH Ibadan forced to reverse charging patients N1,000 per day for electricity

The University College Hospital, Ibadan says that it has withdrawn its memo which mandates patients using the health facility to pay a sum of N1,000 per day.

The hospital had said in a leaked internal memo it took the decision due to erratic supply of electricity. 

It claimed that the management decided to task the patients using the Federal Government-owned heath facility due to the increased electricity tariff and price of diesel. 

The management of the tertiary heath institution, however, said that it has withdrawn the internal memo. 

The management made this disclosure via a statement signed by the Director of Administration of the Hospital, Mr. S. O. Oladejo on behalf of the Chief Medical Director, Professor Jesse Abiodun Otegbayo. 

“The attention of the Management of the University College Hospital, Ibadan has been drawn to a publication in all sections of the media alleging that the Hospital is charging N1,000.00 per patient daily for electricity. 

“The Hospital wishes to state that the memo being referred to was an internal memo which we did not implement after a thorough review from internal mechanisms for such issues and has since been withdrawn. At no point did the hospital charge electricity fee.”
