He will be seeing an oncologist on Monday, he wrote, and will not be needing an operation. He said:

    This is great news. That aside, what is happening to our medical institutions? Have we deteriorated to the point when we can’t diagnose properly? Only God knows how many people have died because of misdiagnosis. May God save us

God knows how many people they would have sent to an early grave. Na wah Ooooo. May God save us in Nigeria, Nigeria is in a sorry state and only God can save it, Corruption has killed the Nation from the head to toe.
