Ekiti State First Lady, Erelu Bisi Fayemi has taken over the eye surgery of my daughter, the award winning Saxophonist Precious Oluwatamilore Sodeinde.
Globalgistng had earlier reported that A young damsel, 13-year old Preciuos Oluwatamilore Sodeinde, has been declared partially blind by doctors at both the Afe Babalola Multi-purpose Hospital and the Ekiti State University, Teaching Hospital, Ado-Ekiti, Ekiti State capital.
More tragic about Oluwatamilore’s travail is that the doctors have warned that she would soon lose her sight totally if an eye surgical operation is not urgently carried out on her.
Worsening the poor but talented girl’s woes is another fact that her parents cannot afford to pay the N2million demanded for her eye surgery.
Report reaching me in about 15 minutes ago confirmed that the wife of the Governor will be responsible for the bill and has directed that my wife Mrs Olajumoke Sodeinde should take my child to Afe Babalola University Teaching Hospital with immediate effect.
The report further confirmed that all arrangement has been put in place for the operation adding that they are now only waiting for my wife with my child at the Afe Babalola University Teaching to arrive with the child.
While I want to appreciate the kindhearted wife of the Governor for her timely intervention, I also thank the state Governor, Dr John Kayode Fayemi and Ekiti State government.
I also want to thank all those people that have supported us in one way or the other since we cried out.
I equally appreciate all my friends both in Nigeria and abroad who have been standing by me all through to the present moment.
I equally appreciate my colleagues in the media industry for standing by me, and particularly the Ekiti State Correspondent NUJ being led by Victor Ogunje for their efforts.
While I will appreciate Nigerians for their prayers, I equally want to solicit for their continuous prayers as my daughter goes in for the operation.
Specifically, please help me pray for successful operation and perfect vision restoration after the operation.
In view of the current development. I have therefore pulled down my solicition for assistance of any kind.
