However, according to the Lagos State NMA Chairman Dr Benjamin Olowojebutu who read the report of the panel on Wednesday, the panel observed that there was no verifiable maintenance structure for the lift installed at the hospital where the medical house officer died weeks ago.

“Following the standards of Lagos State Safety Commission, we recommend that hospital assets be maintained and serviced by the hospital management to avoid needless bureaucracy and such assets should be certified annually by competent professionals,” the report partly noted.
