In a video seen by TheCable, the nurses, in their white uniforms, were singing and chanting “No working materials for nurses”.

They alleged that they had no personal protective gear, including face masks, hand sanitisers and hand gloves to work with amid the coronavirus outbreak in the state.

The state government had approved the sum of N320 million to tackle the spread of the disease in the state.

Ifeanyi Agujiobi, permanent secretary of the ministry of health, said the state executive council also approved the immediate upgrade of the isolation centre at the hospital.

This measure was taken after the daughter of a suspected coronavirus patient in the state accused the state government and the management of the hospital of negligence and unpreparedness.
