    Damn Nigeria is poor.Look at that hospital!Such a sad case of a country of people living lavish,yet they dont have the basic needs like a functional hospital.They are quick to show their newly acquired possessions,posting on instagram about their cars,mere things like handbags,shoes,who’s getting married next,who taking promo shots,who’s dating who etc.How vane of nigerians?

      loool. Tessa, thats what makes us a happy nation… we have great people in Nigeria, but we have Governmnt officials who rarely give back to society that elected them, this is a government hospital thats y it looks like this…private ones owned by individuals look way better. because some people are poor doesn’t mean we don’t have the more opportune….

    Okay, based on your comment @Tessa, I think your boss or colleague just upset you.*Sorry about that*. Anyway, giving is living, thumbs-up Steph. You can give and still own expensive cars, get married tomorrow, buy nice shoes and bags(of your choice) and as well date whoever you wanna date. YOLO!

    @ Tessa, pple like you don’t appreciate other pple’s good effort n intentions, you can not compare hospitals in rural areas with urban areas. I guess it not the same in ur “rich” country. Welcome done steph…

    Well done Stephanie. May God bless you and reward your efforts. MEanwhile, I’m surprised that there would be VVF in Cross River State. Blame that on my ignorance.
