Buhari visits survivors of Abuja bomb explosions

President Buhari Commiserates with victims of the Nyanya and Kuje bomb blasts at the National Hospital Abuja alongside Chief of Staff Abba Kyari, Governor Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun state amongst others

President Muhammadu Buhari on 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, 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, 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.
