He continued that National Health Insurance Authority (NHIA) is the main source of funding for the hospital but the delayed payment of the health claims is slowing operations of the hospitals.

He revealed that the generator is turned off at 11pm amid any emergency to converse power for the next morning. Health personnel relies on torch light, mobile, rechargeable lamps and other means of electricity to provide services to patients.
