It has been revealed that Governor Nasir El-Rufai lied when he said that the oxygen mask of a child was disconnected by protesting workers at Barau Dikko Hospital.
According to PeoplesGazette, one of the parents told NTA that the baby was hale and hearty.
“Even then, the oxygen was not in her mouth because they said she was stable at that moment. We were the ones that emphasised that we have to carry our baby to another hospital,” the father said.
Labour unions in the state on Monday began a five-day warning strike over the mass sacking of local government workers.
Commercial banks, transporters, traders, petrol station attendants, and others also withdrew their services to join the protest.
The governor on Tuesday declared the president of the Nigeria Labour Congress Ayuba Wabba and other executives wanted for alleged economic sabotage.
