In what seemed like a painful situation, a former national publicity secretary of the Peoples Democratic Party, Olisa Metuh, seen lying in a hospital bed has called on Nigerians, family and friends to pray for him.
Metuh in a Facebook post posted on Friday, January 21, said he has had several surgeries and procedures in the past year.
Draped in hospital clothing, bandages and anti-fatigue compression socks, the PDP stalwart who appears to have just had surgery said he is believing God that this would be his last.
"No matter how angry you've been about my outspokenness or outright naked challenge to power back then, please pray for me.

The cankerworm had eaten deeply into my health, it has not been easy and I have only remained whole through the mercies of God."
He also said that although he had received some scary news from his doctors, he believes that the grace of God is sufficient for him and would make him whole again.
"I got some scary news from the surgeons today but my faith remains in God Almighty and with your prayers and by His stripes I am healed and would remain whole in Jesus name."
