- A Nigerian lady identified as Onyi Sunday says President Muhammadu Buhari's aide Adejoke Orelope-Adefulire paid for a woman's hospital bills
- Before the bills were cleared, the mother and her child had been discharged four days earlier, but they were held back because of the bills
- Orelope-Adefulire, who is a former deputy governor of Lagos state, paid the sum of N18,500 so the mother and the child could be released
A Nigerian lady identified as Onyi Sunday has narrated how a mother and her child were rescued from the hospital by a former deputy governor of Lagos state and President Muhammadu Buhari's senior special assistant on SDGs, Adejoke Orelope-Adefulire.
Sunday took to her Twitter page on Monday, February 17, to disclose that she was moderating an event at Alimosho general hospital when she experienced what an unexpected miracle looks like.
She said a man approached her on her way to her car to tell her about a woman who had just undergone caesarean section to give birth.
Sunday said the mother and the child had not been able to leave the hospital despite being discharged four days earlier because the bills had not been cleared.
She said: "I thought to myself; who will I approach with all the activities that accompany events like the one I was moderating. The thing is, the programme was on curbing child and maternal mortality. Perfect opportunity I thought to myself. So I approached the former deputy gov of Lagos state."
Sunday said the president's aide, who was a guest at the event, gave her the money within 10 minutes to run upstairs and pay the bills.
She said: "The prayers in that ward were epic. Her bill was N18,500 by the way."
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that a benevolent UK-resident paid for the medical bills of six stranded new mothers at the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital for the new mothers to be released.
According to Chris-Vincent Agyapong Febiri, a human rights advocate, his friend was left heart-wrenched by the state of the women when he arrived in Ghana and visited the Korle-Bu Teaching Hospital.
