According to sources, the inability of the Specialist Hospital to operate single Treasury account was as a result of the need to constantly pay Doctors the hospital employed recently and paid from the hospital’s coffers.
Furthermore, the hospital was operating a drug revolving scheme and would be pretty difficult to sustain the scheme if the money is paid into the state government account before seeking for approval and withdrawal when the hospital run out of stocks.
