Boko Haram: FG To Pay Medical Bills Of Nyanya Blast Victims

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 Governor Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun State and his personal aides visited the Intensive Care Unit, the Paediatric Unit, and the 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 psychological sense of being valued and loved by their country.
