First Lady Donates Medical Items to Nyanya Bombing Victims



Dame Patience Jonathan - April 2014 - 01

Dame Patience Jonathan, the First Lady of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, today Friday 18th April 2014, donated medical items to hospitalised victims of the Nyanya bombing.

The unfortunate incident which reportedly claimed over 75 lives, occurred on Tuesday at a bus garage.

Although Dame was not present to distribute the items, she was represented by Rani Ibrahim, the National Coordinator of her non-profit organization – the Women for Change and Development Initiative.

According to Vanguard, items were donated at the National Hospital, Asokoro.

It is where victims of the blast are being treated.

“We want to show love in the spirit of the Easter to aid our brothers and sisters recuperate well. We also want to use this opportunity to call on the perpetrators to embrace dialogue and shun violence”, she said in a statement.

    To donate i.e. to bequeath, to bestow…as if it’s a gift, some kind of privilege.

    How can medical items be gifted? They are supposed to be the norm. Or is it just me?

      Help me ask them o , you don’t deserve a pat on the back for doing what you’re meant to be doing . This country sha , but what about the victims in the north , how are these bombings any different from the ones in the north and those victims didn’t get as much attention. I am sure they had shortages as well , all we ever heard of them is when the bombs happened and how many people died . Nothing about their care and rehabilitation .

    I don’t understand why this is news worthy. Do people have to be bombed before government-owned hospitals receive new equipments? why is this a PR campaign?

    Good Gesture from Mama Peace!
    However, You don’t DIALOGUE with terrorists, You FIGHT and KILL them, ( May be terrorists should invade one of the international schools in Abuja and abduct young daughters of people in the political class, may be then, we can start talking about dialogue)

      I understand why they are saying that , what the terrorist want is war and we can’t give them that. We cannot afford the have a repeat of the biafran war , so many unecessary lives lost . We don’t want Nigeria to turn into a war zone like Iraq , Iran , Afghanistan . Terrorism is hard to fight because you don’t know who the terrorist are they look like everyday people , America is still fighting terrorism till today .

    Disgusting. Are they meant to thank her? If her husband did his job properly, they wouldn’t be victims at the moment.

    Donate?!!!. Becos she’s making a statement of dissatisfaction with the disgusting state of health care in Nigeria. A country her HUSBAND precedes over?!. And perhaps is planning to run for the next election as her saintly self!?. Or a truely misguided gesture, from a sweet innocent retard!?. Or the egoist gestures of someone who thinks she has the birth right to dip into the resources of a country and gift said resources back to the country. Infact am in a state of confusion at the meaning of this here DONATION. Doesn’t this madam have advisor?

    She didn’t even go her self… how sweet… Our country is honestly messed up but all glory to God he has been faithful. May the lives of those who lost their lives continue to rest in peace and those in the hospital get well soon ASAP!!! God is not asleep amidst all these and will judge them all for being so nonchalant.

      My thought exactly. She didn’t even bother going there to show some empathy. Foolish greedy ugly woman. I hope this is there last few months in office.
