Lamentations of a ‘frustrated’ Nigerian Surgeon

Standard

The story below depicts how corruption in other institutions would never allow Nigeria’s health system perform optimally. I worked with the writer during my housemanship a couple of years ago. He shared this on Nigerian doctors facebook group. Kindly read on…

Ahidjo Abdulkadiri Kawu wrote;

“Colleagues,
1. I am a spine surgeon employed at the University of Abuja Teaching Hospital, Gwagwalada Abuja as a consultant.
2. I was a fellow of Scoliosis Research Society at the New York Hospital for Joint Diseases, US in August 2010 under the tutelage of Dr Baron S Lonner.
3. At the completion of my training, Dr Baron S Lonner on my behalf approached Samantha Torres of DePuy Spine Inc US for donation of spine equipment to help operate indigent patients in Nigeria to put to practice all I have learnt with him.
4. On the 15th December 2010, DePuy Spine Inc US approved the donation of some spine items for use by me at the University of Abuja Teaching Hospital, Gwagwalada.
5. I contacted my hospital management who informed me to ship the equipment to Nigeria.
6. My clearing agent Siklaw Global Resource Ltd after completing the Form M and risk assessment paid the custom duty on the 6th march 2011.
7. The equipment was shipped in to Nigeria from the US and arrived in May 2011.
8. On arrival, the O/C (Officer in Charge) Custom Services Mr Wakama GAP inspected the document and said that we must settle him before he release the good since the donated equipment has a value of about N50 million.
9. I instructed the clearing agent to refuse to part with any money.
10. In order to frustrate the release of the equipment he refused to examine or release the equipment till it incurred a demurrage of N27, 800.00. His Immediate boss intervene and directed him to inspect and release the equipment
11. In-order to justify his delay in inspecting the goods, he wrote a report that we undervalued the goods so as to evade payment of the requisite custom duty
12. Due to his greed; the need to justify his action and covered his crime he forgot that medical equipment and donated materials for humanitarian purpose do not attract any duty
13. This issue dragged on till 15th July 2011, when I wrote an official petition to the Comptroller General of the Nigeria Custom Service.
14. There was no response from the Nigeria Custom Service till October 2011 when I officially reported the case to ICPC for further action
15. In November, I was invited by the investigation officer from Nigeria Custom Service to tell my story
16. I was informed by the investigating officer that I have not done anything wrong and that the officer knows that too and that the equipment will be brought to the hospital for me.
17. Since November till date, the equipment is still at the storage which the Nigeria Custom Service has refused to release
18. I have discharged home to die many patients who would have benefited from this equipment.
19. I wanted the government to investigate this claim and appropriate sanction should be applied to this irresponsible officer whose greed has led to death of many indigent patients in Nigeria, yet I have not received any correspondence from them.
This is the story of Nigeria, where thieves have taken up our lives and greed is our religion”

Thank you for patiently reading through.

Many innocent Nigerians lose their lives because of ugly tales like this. Sometimes essential and emergency life-saving drugs are unavailable in the entire country because of the corruption and/or bureaucracy of the Nigerian Custom Service. Yet, import waivers are given to some allegedly corrupt entrepreneurs. How long would ordinary Nigerians continue to suffer from the institutional corruption continually being perpetrated by officers who are supposed to work for our welfare and national interest?

  1. Oh my. Dr Kawu should shout this from the roof tops. And yes we would help him. Dr Laz, thank you for leading the way. We should scream it to the hearing of Nigerians and the shame of the relevant agencies. Something must give…Enough of this rubbish.

  2. Sad that the majority ends up paying for the greed of a few. The Nigerian customs is one of the biggest cartel we have who have perfected the art of extorting money from honest business men & makes importing anything generally difficult

  3. You see!!! This is exactly what I tell my friends mostimes is not that we dnt have good or qualified medical personnel but there r a lot of strong opposing factors to the progress of health care and until you are directly involved you dnt tend to see them. I respect you sir for seeing it fit not to pay that bribe no matter what. I wish most nigerians will resist pressure frm such corrupt institutions so they’ll get tired and be forced to change. May you know success in all you do

  4. I am so pained by this story that I wish I had powers to completely destroy this country called Nigeria! A country where evil constantly thrives over good! What a shame!

  5. D nation is bleeding from d stangulating fists of gluttonous imbeciles. Fear and greed are highly correlated, but all it take evil men to destroy d society is for good people to stand aloof and watch. Time to begin the cleansing of these filth from our national life. Death penalty for all form of roguery. Dats not harsh, i believe.

  6. The health minister should hear this.Nigeria is such a rotten place stinking all over.All govt institutions have been crippled by spinal tumor and those equipments urgently for spinal decompression.This country can never grow in whatever field until we shed this garb of greed and selfishness.Who says we are religious.

  7. Sorry to hear that. I so much pity myself being a Nigerian. I must also say that I also suffered almost same when we imported our medical equipment. We had to part with over 200,000 from some useless customs officials, infact a police officer @ the gate held us and it was the useless customs that told us to additionally settle the poiice, that’s a tradition. U should talk to ur medical association and they will act and that customs guy should be named and made to leave dishonourably.

    • Funny you should suggest that considering that you paid the bribe when faced with similar situation. Not that i disagree with shaming the custom officer. The truth is, the problem is now so endemic and the solution not that simplistic. Had you too refused to pay up and not considered what your business will suffer which by the way is a great sacrifice to ask of you and I know, huge. However, when it becomes obvious and the message is being passed that we as a people prefer to do the right thing, corrupt officials will begin to take a step down, it will take time but I believe it will eventually catch on and we might actually get to move this great nation our Country, towards a turn around. You know, a little less of SELF y’all. The wealth of a nation is the mindset of that nation.

  8. The custom officers should fear God, and should know that today if it’s ordinary people that are developing spinal problem, tomorrow he may be affected. May Allah safe this country. Amim

  9. Just spoke to someone and he suggested that the Doctor Ask the donating agency to write to the Federal Government of Nigeria, CC the Minister of Health and the Controller General of Prisions. It is worth a try

  10. This story has left me in tears. What selfishness and greed. I am a South African hoping to move to Abudja soon. I hope I can make a conscientious contribution and difference.

  11. Its is sad to say-the future is with less hope.The hierarchical nature of leadership is worse than worst.The baby in the stomach is thinking of getting wealth for its generation yet unborn.Citizens doubt that things can change and take pleasure in safety.Ehich way Naija?

  12. One wonders if there is any hope for this perpetually corrupt country.This country reeks of petrid corrupt practises in every system and institution.may God help us.

  13. God is watching all these wickedness, the wicked and his cohorts, will never escape God’s divine sentence.

  14. Please is there a way to Contact Dr Kawu? Email phone number any thing, We made a lot of noise yesterday, Health Minister is now aware and really interested so is the CP of customs, but they need to contact him.

  16. Still waiting for a means to contact Dr Kawu, we have made the noise they have listened, please we urgently need his contact information to sort this mess out. Please

    • To all my colleagues, thanks a million. There is a new twist to this saga.
      1. The National Assembly has asked that I should come wit the document related to this case on monday.
      2. The ICPC has contacted me that the case would be solved soon.
      3. The office of the Comptroller General Custom(CGC) has called me to say that the goods has been released with immediate effect and the officer has been ordered to report to Abuja and would be punish because they have read the message on the internet and are scared the dimension it has taken.
      4. The warehouse said the demurage is abt 3million already
      5. When we go to the NA, the Custom would claim that they have released the goods
      What do I want?
      1. That all doctors who have had similar experiences with the custom officials should come out to report their cases.
      2. Letter of Apology from the CGC.
      3. The goods should be brought to Abuja and delivered at my office.
      4. Letter to the donor company clearing my name that I have not diverted the goods for private use.
      5. Public apology to Nigerians for their insensitivity and directly responsible for the death of Nigerians.
      I pledge to work for the plights of Nigerian with spine related problems and this I would do with all of my strength. Thanks once again.
      Dr Kawu Ahidjo 08034096417. Left for Lagos to operate a patient and would be back on Sunday in the evening when my patient is stable.

  17. Finding Dr. Kawu shouldn’t be difficult should it? He says he’s at the University of Abuja Teaching Hospital, Gwagwalada. I’d really love to know how this ends and see those involved in the corruption mess indicted. But I have a feeling I’m just hoping… We really have a loooong way to go *smh*

  18. So happy to hear the good news. We will keep the pressure up until the equipments are safely in Gwagwalada. Thank you for this blog. Thank you Dr. Kawu for your sacrifices

  19. Also All those who have been victims of this inhumane act please send in your compliant with documents to the house committee on Monday. Let us not be silent and allow these wicked people thrive

  20. I am impressed at the speed this case was resolved with (or getting resolved). Indeed social media has become a force to be reckoned with…Dr Kawu’s case gives me continued hope, that all it takes may just be a few good (wo)men to stand up to this malignant cancer called corruption in all spheres of our society and gradually but surely defeat it!

  21. Great comments people. I’m particularly pleased, like most of you, with the positive developments that followed this posting on this blog. I hope the concerned authorities would sanitize the system to forestall future occurrence.
    On my other blog, I did a piece on National Health Bill which I believe would help to strengthen our health care delivery system. You may consider checking it out here – http://donlaz.blogspot.com/2012/03/nigerias-national-health-bill-call-for.html. All hands on deck as we push for a better Nigeria and a more responsible leadership at all levels. God bless Nigeria!!

  22. I find it diff to know who is corrupt in this country bcos u see comments n repors in media frm our so called leaders conderming corruption in it totality. And everyday things like these happens. My own questions are : Does NIGERIA have future for its children? Can we ever get there? Its a shame!

  23. Dear Doctor Kawu,I have read your alleged claims and I must  tell you that I believe you are not telling the whole story. You cannot use the social media  as you often do,to throw tantrums and expect that all Nigerians will buy your story. I feel that you are being economical with the facts of the matter and must  be made to answer certain questions also.

    We have seen a lot of people like you, make bogus claims to indict credible NIgerians.

    Having read through your claims I noticed that certain issues did not add up. Kindly answer the following questions.

    1) You stated in your claims,that “on arrival, the O/C (Officer in Charge) Custom Services Mr Wakama GAP inspected the document and said that we must settle him before he release the good since the donated equipment has a value of about N50 million”.

    Why would he assume that the equipments were undervalued, if he did not have any initial suspicions?If your goods were not undervalued, how did you value them to Nigerian Customs in the first place for such a claim to arise?

    Did you have any direct dealings or forum with Mr Wakama GAP where he allegedly asked you to settle him? Did you encounter him face to face?

    2)You  wrote that your clearing agents,” Siklaw Global Resource Ltd after completing the Form M and risk assessment paid the custom duty on the 6th March 2011″.

    How come you are now telling us on line 12 that  medical equipments and materials donated for humanitarian purposes did not attract duties? Why did your clearing agent pay duties on medical equipments and materials donated for humanitarian purposes when you are not supposed to?

    Tell us,what was the status of your Risk Assessment Report?

    Tell us, what was the actual value of the equipments and what amount did you pay as customs duties  to the Federal Government of Nigeria on the 6th of March 2011?

    Can you produce the invoice and an itemized list of your equipments for all to see?

    Tell us,if your equipments were donations,did you apply for a Donation Waiver from the Nigerian Customs Services? If so what happened? If not, why?

    3)You mentioned that,”his immediate boss intervene and directed him to inspect and release the equipment”. It shows therefore that he no longer had any more authorities to withhold  your equipments.

    4)You also mentioned on lines 15 and 16, the following that, “in November, I was invited by the investigation officer from Nigeria Custom Service to tell my story. I was informed by the investigating officer that I have not done anything wrong and that the officer knows that too and that the equipment will be brought to the hospital for me”.  

    Again, this tells me that the said officer had no more role to play in your matter, that it was up to the investigating officer to deliver your equipments as promised to you.

    You, yourself admitted that  Mr Wakama GAP was not the one withholding your goods rather, according to you, “there was no response from the Nigeria Custom Service till October 2011 when I officially reported the case to ICPC for further action” and “that since November till date, the equipment is still at the storage which the Nigeria Custom Service has refused to release”.

    Doctor Kawu, Mr Wakama GAP, was only doing his job. Not all Customs Officers are corrupt.

    You have a case to answer because you fraudulently deceived the Nigerian Customs by undervaluing the equipments and by  being very economical with the truth, thereby being as corrupt,malicious and untrustworthy to the very system you claim to be champion of.

    You have built a reputation of always crying wolf, inciting others and blackmail tendencies.

    You had a similar brush with NAFDAC previously were you cast aspersions against the Presidency
    Dr Kawu, stop your cyber bullying, stop using attack as a form of defense.

    You claimed that the investigating officer said, you did nothing wrong. Let the high moral-standards you claim to have, be the judge of that. You have a case to answer.  You have a case to answer to the vulnerable and helpless people  whose misfortunes you have used for your selfish advantage.  The very people, you claim to protect and serve.

    • I like your observation and it has brought to fore where youi stand. I have chosen my stand a long time ago and that is to be the best doctor I can be for my patients!
      1. The custom people have released the goods after they paid the demurrage themselves.
      2. That I reported to the EFCC, ICPC and the Custom heads, do you think after all my education, I will be stupid to accuse anybody with a ‘LIE’.
      3. That I scream because of an injustice does that makes me an alarmist!
      4. Do you know what it meant to a person witj spinal cord problems and his family?
      5. Do you know how much we have put in to be a doctor, 6yrs med school, 6 years residency, 1 year fellowship training and more than 20 examination yoiu would shit in your pants to write.
      6. Do you know what it feels to sit beside a dying patients that you could save if yoi had what to work with?
      7. Do you know how the relative feel when they lose their love one?
      8. I wish you would work on the fact of this case and keep your hatred to yourself, which I believe you should deploy to helping to make the world a better place.
      9. I would scream, shout, bite until a time would come when a goat like you can be treated decently when you come to a hospital for treatment and get the best from me.
      10. Youi can tell your sponsors that a new sherrif is in town.
      11. That instrument was donated to treat indigent Nigerians because I am the first Nigerian and African to have won the SRS fellowship and I am proud of my achievement.

  24. Dear Dr Kawu, your write up is heart wrenching, however i have a few POSERS of my own for you.

    (1) Were the equipment Donated to the University of Abuja Teaching hospital or to you as an individual.
    (2) if the Teaching hospital were the recipent of the Surgical equipment, how come they are not handling the matter on an interdepartmental level.
    (3) if the answer to the first part of (1) is no, in what capacity did you recieve the donations.
    (4) Do you render free spinal services to your patients, if the answer is yes, can you show documented proof to that effect.
    (5) Did you get a waiver to import the equipment, if yes can you publish it for all to see.
    (6) If the answer to (5) is no, is Mr Wakama GAP to be held responsible for your inability to obtain a waiver..
    (7) Can you itemise the equipment, tell us their true value and the amount you quoted to the customs.
    (8) Is it true that you Tried to defraud the federal Government of Nigeria by quoting the value of your equipment (8 cartons in all) to be 500 Dollars when the invoice encased within the equipment stated their actual price to be 230,074 dollars IN A BID TO PAY A RIDICULOUSLY LOW amount of money as customs duty.
    (9) Have you ever met the customs officer Mr Wakama GAP in person, IF Your answer is yes, CAN YOU STATE WHERE, WHEN or WHO saw the both of you together.
    (10) Can you state the exact amount of money demanded by the customs offficer and the person from whom such demand was made if not you.
    (11) Does Mr Wakama deserve commendation or condemnation for insisting that you and your ilk pay the correct amount of duty to the federal Republic of NIgeria, THE MAIN REASON FOR WHICH HE WAS POSTED TO THAT DUTY POST IN THE FIRST PLACE.
    (12) if a superior officer to Mr Wakama assured you that Mr Wakama acted in error, how come the goods where not released to you immediately.
    (13) You claimed that the Nigeria customs service has apologised to you, Can you show evidence to that effect.
    TO ALL THE FOLLOWERS OF THIS PATHETIC STORY,. KINDLY PREVAIL ON THE GOOD DOCTOR TO PROVIDE ANSWERS TO THESE QUESTIONS.. HE APPEARS TO HAVE GONE OMINOUSLY SILENT IN THE PAST 24 HOURS OR SO.

      (7) Can you itemise the equipment.
      8) Have you been notified that medical equipment attracts a duty of 5% comprising of cost, insurance and freight and that only VAT is waived.
      (10) You stated that the customs officer valued your equipment at #50 million, what was the actual value and your own declaration at the customs.
      (11) Is it true that you paid a sum of about #9,660 as duty on 8 cartons of medical equipment whose invoice encased within the equipment stated their actual price to be $230,074.
      (12) Assuming we use just the cost of equipment valued at $230,074,(#36,811,840) at
      5% your duty should amount to $11,503.70 or #1,840,592. excluding the cost of insurance and freight.
      (13) Dr is it now obvious that Mr Wakama GAP QUERRIED YOU BECAUSE YOU TRIED TO SHORTCHANGE THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT OF NIGERIA BY #1,830,932.
      (9) Have you ever met the customs officer Mr Wakama GAP in person, If your answer is yes, CAN YOU STATE WHERE, WHEN or WHO saw the both of you together.

      TO ALL THE FOLLOWERS OF THIS PATHETIC STORY, IT IS NOW OBVIOUS THAT WE ARE EITHER DEALING WITH A CASE OF ATTEMPTED EXTORTION OR A CASE OF OUTRIGHT FRAUD. THE ONUS OF PROOF IN THE CASE OF EXTORTION RESTS ON DR KAWU, UNFORTUNATELY HE ALONE CAN EXONERATE HIMSELF FROM BEING FRAUDULENT BY REVEALING DETAILS OF ACTUAL VALUE OF EQUIPMENT, AMOUNT DECLARED AT THE CUSTOMS AND ACTUAL AMOUT PAID AS DUTY. WE HOPE THE EFCC IS WATCHING.

  25. Dr Kawu
    The above vilified happens to be my eldest brother
    as a civil servant and a paramilitary officer -he is barred from granting press interviews

    Thanks for your misinformation and half truth i will need you to answer these questions
    Granted the equipment where “Donated”- which is debatable

    1. Did you apply for duty waiver any supporting document to show that you did
    2. Why did you opt to pay for Duty?
    3. What did you declare as the full value of the duty…i see . FRAUDULENT claims at play
    4. For a N50million worth of goods – what did you pay as duty? let us know
    5. What is a clearing agent doing forging form “M”………FORGERY…i believe you thats a crime
    6. Why did your Clearing agent abscond when queried?…..his Innocence made him run I guess

    STAND AWARE THAT I WILL TAKE THIS MATTER TO ANY LEVEL I HOPE YOU HAVE THE NERVE AND VERVE TO GO THE WHOLE HOG—-

  27. Dear Doctor Kawu,

    Thank you very much for your magnanimous response. From your reply to my write up, my suspicions about your credibility,competence and motive are confirmed.

    Judging from your articulation,composure and grammar, I fear for the medical profession in this country and your patients as a whole.

    What kind of a well trained Doctor you claim to be,with the international recognition you claim to have, speak this kind of English? “…20 examination yoiu would shit in your pants to write”. Is this how you represent the country  overseas? Mmmmmm…..

    You asked if I know what it is to train as a medical doctor. Dr Kawu, I do. The doctors, I have (and are several, you might want to know)  are well trained, respectful, respected and nothing like you.

    You asked if I know what it is to have a critically sick  patient in my family, I know that pain.  I had several.And I thank God that I did not have doctors as yourself in the medical team treating them at the time.

    Stop using the plights of your patients to score cheap political points.

    I am not a goat. I am an intelligent Nigerian who wants answers.

    All I am asking you to do is to answers the questions myself and others are asking you.

    What was
    MKthe status of your Risk Assessment Report?
    Did you apply for a Donation Waiver from the Nigerian Customs Services?
    Did you pay customs duties on the materials donated for charity?Why
    If you did, much did you pay for those  8 boxes as customs duties to the Federal  Government of Nigeria?
    Did your clearing agent abandon the consignments due to discrepancies in documentation?
    What has Siklaw Global Limited got to do with a Form M?

    Could this  be a  cause of a customs officer, doing the right thing and Nigerians castigating him for doing his job?
