President Muhammadu Buhari Sunday in Abuja took
succour to survivors of Friday night’s bomb attacks on
Nyanya and Kuje in the Federal Capital Territory.
On a visit to the survivors of the attack who are
receiving treatment at the Trauma Centre of the
National Hospital, President Buhari wished them full
and speedy recovery.
The President reassured the survivors that the Federal
Government will take full responsibility for settling their
medical bills.
He also directed his Chief of Staff, Mallam Abba Kyari
to settle the N268,790.00 medical bill of a young girl
in the Paediatric Ward of the hospital.
The girl’s mother, Deborah Stephen, had broken into
tears on seeing President Buhari. She told him that her
daughter had been shot by armed robbers who raided
their home and that the family could not afford the
medical bills.
The President who was accompanied by his personal
aides and Governor Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun State,
visited the intensive care unit, the paediatric unit and
general wards of the National Hospital.
Expressing his appreciation of the President’s visit, the
Chief Medical Director of the National Hospital, Dr
Jafaru Momoh said that it will help the patients’
recovery by giving them a greater psychological sense
of being valued and loved by their country.
