A Sierra Leonean journalist with the Cable Network News (CNN), Isha Sesay has revealed how Nigerian Doctors and Nurses helped saved her mother’s life in a Lagos hospital.
She made the disclosure via her verified Twitter account. In her tweets, she also called out her country’s government officials to make provisions for hospitals for its people.
She stated that while the sickness of her mother lasted in Sierra Leone without proper medical facility, she had to bring her down to Lagos, Nigeria where she was treated.
“When my mother took ill in Sierra Leone last December, I had to take her to Nigeria. I’m so grateful for Nigerian nurses and doctors who saved her life,” she wrote.
“Many have asked which hospital my mum was admitted to in Nigeria. It was Lagoon hospital in Apapa. She was in ICU for three months.
“I am thankful there were medical options in Nigeria for my mother because I had none available in Sierra Leone.”
While Nigerian Leaders don’t believe in Nigeria’s medical system both private and public, other African countries are counting on Nigeria as medical hub. It will be recalled that President Muhammadu Buhari left the country months ago and a respected elder statesman died in Cairo earlier this week
