    How can people be dying from diabetes, kidney problems and appendicitis for goodness sake. These are all manageable diseases that should not be taking so many lives. Thanks to our non-existing health care in Nigeria. The Nigerian government has failed us. We are a failed nation!!!! God help the helpless youth whose future have been stolen by politicians and public servants! Rest in peace my dear!

      What makes you think the health care is non-existent, when one case comes up, people start blaming the whole health sector despite all the good we are still able to achieve with limited resources, God knows what doctors face working here, even patients are not encouraging, not trying to blame the dead, but a patient who ends up developing a diabetic foot ulcer did not have optimal sugar control, you have a lot of patients despite adequate counseling, despite talking and talking by the diabetic association every clinic day on sugar control, diet and foot care they still default and come back when the foot is already decaying and gone, when they are told it’s gangrenous and will need to be amputated they refuse and the next time they are seen they come in dead having died of sepsis from a chronic diabetic foot ulcer, do you know how painful this is???, or you think all doctors are inept and like watching their patients die, when things could have been prevented. Nigeria has a long way to go also in patient attitude and health seeking practices not everything is spiritual. I’m sorry if I’ve offended anyone, may the dearly departed rest in peace and God comfort his family.

      Believe it or not it is not just in Nigeria, diabetes is a serious disease and can controlled depending on when it is dictated in the patient. Obi was a fine actor I loved watching and my prayers are with his family.

    Is it not interesting that we have a government and an education system that is not interested in getting to the root of the problems? In more advances climes people will be concerned about the rise in these cases e.g. cancer, diabetes, kidney failure and the rest. Questions will be asked: why the sudden rise? Change in life style? What is the cost of the death of these ones (especially the youth) to the nation? Are these illnesses that can be stopped or at least reduced to the barest minimum? What do we do? But No! We are not Interested. Nafdac is asleep,everyone and anyone brings useless products that cure a million ailments to us and we buy them. The government has failed us, the institutions have failed us and we have also failed ourselves because of our greed and our inordinate love for money. May Jehovah sàve us all.

    @ wendy_gurl…i feel you ..i also feel more needs to be done to change the mindset of Nigerians concerning issues about health …my driver insist that an obvious gangrene infection of his brother was caused by “village people” …enlightenment programmes in pidgin english and other vernacular markets and motor parks will help a lot

    @ Wendy. You misunderstand the blame game. Most of us are not blaming doctors, but the healthcare system in Nigeria in totality. If a doctor fails in his duty, its on the system- cos indispline is supposed to be dealt with to get a system running. When they are no resources to help the medical team work effectively, it is on the system. The govt needs to sit up. What is a country without healthcare? It is a right. My dad died recently after a year of serious illness, I have never seen a sicker person. We sold everytin he had his name on, spent over 3 million. As we move from hospital to hospital, what I experienced shocked me. Even in private hospitals.

    it is well with us, what can the common man do in a country where its leaders (President ) seeks medical help outside the country he is leading, we only live and survive by the Grace of God cos nobody cares
