40 patients of Kubwa General Hospital in Abuja has benefitted from the generosity of BAT Vanguard, a group rooting for the Bola Ahmed Tinubu, the Presidential candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

The group said the gesture was aimed at providing support and financial assistance to vulnerable patients in different hospitals in the 36 States and the Federal Capital Territory.

Shola Olofin, the convener of the group, while addressing journaislits at the hospital, said the group was on a rescue mission to some Nigerians suffering different illnesses in various hospitals, who could not pay their medical bill by providing support.

“Because of the situation in the country, it is very essential to give support to people who are in need, so we are targeting those Nigerians in different hospitals who cannot afford to pay their hospital bills to see how we can be of immense help to them,” he said.

“The nationwide outreach program which started last month cut across all the local government areas in Nigeria was designed to throw our support for the APC Presidential candidate, who we believe with his antecedents to quality healthcare will complement and sustain the exercise if elected into power comes 2023.

“We have gone to different hospitals across the country. Today we are in Kubwa, so the outreach will continue to ensure that this support reach to Nigerians who actually need support,” he added.

National Women leader of the group Dr Esther Etuk said the choice of the general hospital was informed by the fact that most Nigerians who cannot afford their medical bill are mostly patrons of General Hospital.

According to her: “We have gone to different wards, and some of the patients we met are in critical conditions, and our interactions with some of them show that the support we are providing for them today can go a long way in alleviating their condition.” Commending the gesture of the group, the Medical Director, Kubwa General Hospital, Dr. Lasisi Akinola said: “This is an absolute demonstration of good leadership and commitment to well being of people and we believe that this is actually what God wants and we looked forward for the continuation of this in future.

“Through our social welfare department, so many spirited individuals and groups have been committed to this by supporting the patients, which has made it more easily for some of them to overcome their limitations. With this today, so many lives have been touched, it is something we see from time to time.”
