October 30, 2021
Nigeria, has filed a case against the Medical Director of the Federal Medical Centre, Abeokuta, Ogun State, Prof Adewale Musa-Olomu, at the Federal High Court, Abeokuta, over alleged age falsification.
The summon, with suit number FHC/AB/CS/100, was filed before the court on September 20th, 2021.
The petitioner alleged that the Musa-Olomu deliberately falsified his date of birth.
The group also wondered why Musa-Olomu’s appointment was renewed after he was indicted for age falsification, gross misconduct, and abuse of office by the board of the medical centre.
SaharaReporters gathered that the indicted Medical Director took over the reins of leadership of the hospital on June 1, 2017 for a term of four years.
His letter of appointment was issued and signed by a former Minister of Health, Prof. Isaac Adewole, who was in charge of the nation’s health sector at the time.
However, his tenure was reported to have been fraught with varying allegations.
Aside the controversy around his age, the MD was alleged to have employed his son, Babatunde, and in less than a year of the son’s appointment, he allegedly granted him study leave in a European country, with pay.
Documents seen indicated that within the period that Musa-Olomu was the MD, the hospital’s payroll increased with over 1,700 workers.
It was also learnt that the hospital bought a refurbished Computerised Tomography (CT) scanner, but at the price of a new one.
The machine, bought with N230million, was said to have developed a fault four months after installation.
