UNIOSUN Teaching Hospital CMD Debunks Allegations Of Misappropriation, High-Handedness


Oct 17, 2023

In response to recent allegations made by an unidentified group called “Osun Eagle Eye on Good Governance,” the Management of UNIOSUN Teaching Hospital, Osogbo, has issued a strong rebuttal to the claims. The group accused the Chief Medical Director, Prof. Peter Olaitan, and the hospital’s management team of misappropriation and high-handedness.

The faceless group made unsubstantiated claims about Prof. Olaitan’s administrative skills, management of medical facilities and infrastructure, and the alleged misappropriation of funds for consumables. The hospital management decided to address these allegations due to concerns that some readers might be misled by the unverified claims.

The Management of UNIOSUN Teaching Hospital made the following clarifications regarding the allegations

” Non – Chalant attitude: The administration of UNIOSUN Teaching Hospital Management under the leadership of Prof. Peter Babatunde Olaitan has never left any stone unturned when it comes to the overall development of hospital and it’s personnel because, services and staff development top the priority list of the hospital Management.

Lack of Administrative Skills: The Chief Medical Director is an Administrative person per excellent who has held many administrative positions successfully before the current one and who doesn’t make a decision without involving Technocrats. Any decision made by the Management goes inline with the administrative and professional procedures as guided by the Teaching hospital service rules and regulations.

As part of these is a monthly meeting with all heads of Department/ Unit which allows everyone to delibrate on the development of the hospital, appreciation of staff who has shown outstanding character traits in their various fields, training and re-training of staff, to mention but a few.
There has been peace and progress since he assumed office with accreditation of new programmes both at undergraduate and postgraduate levels. A new school of Paediatric nursing has commenced training.
Facilities have also been improved and clinical activities have not stopped for one day since over three years ago.

Poor maintance of medical facilities and Infrastructures: The management of the hospital always take prompt attention to maintenance and repair of any medical equipments and infrastructural facilities in the hospital as part of these measures to enhance adequate maintenance culture, a monthly program tagged “Ground Round” was held for the staff

Financial irregularities and mis appropriation of fund in purchase of consumables: The hospital will like to inform the public that, every consumables/ equipments purchased for the use of the hospital were carried out in line with due process and based on Procurement Acts. Several committees are involved in this procedure including, advertisement, tender etc.

The issue of being planted and plots into this Government to destabilize the good work of the present administration is laughable to say the least as the Chief Medical Director has faithfully served this administration since its inception about a year ago. He has championed and chaired the Imole Medical outreach which is a major achievement of this administration bringing succour to about 59,000 citizens of the state.”

UNIOSUN Teaching Hospital, Osogbo, remains committed to providing quality healthcare services to the people. The management encourages the public to disregard any releases from the faceless group, Osun Eagle Eye on Good Governance, which appears to be driven by personal motives rather than genuine concern for the hospital’s welfare.
