Ibrahim Shuaibu in Kano
Contrary to an online report, that Isa Hamman, an indigene of Adamawa State and a patient of kidney failure, is dying in Kano due to lack of proper medical care and financial commitment from the Adamawa State government.
The mother of the patient Amina Hamman has stated that her son, Isa, is undergoing good and progressive medical treatment at the Aminu Kano Teaching Hospital (AKTH) and the report that her son is dying is not true.
Speaking to THISDAY at the premises of the hospital yesterday, Amina also denied any contact with any journalist from any medium of such story.
However, Isa’s mother refuted that saying, “I did not speak to any journalist about my son here in Kano, and nobody visited to ask about his health before now. The story is not true. You are the first press people I am talking to since we arrived Kano”.
“The Adamawa state government has been very supportive and my son is receiving good and progressive medical treatment here. All investigations will be concluded by Monday and a date will be fixed for full report on when the kidney surgery will hold”.
“The kidney donor is also here with us, and everything is all set for the kidney surgery as investigation is going on . I just pray some people are not trying to politicise my son’s condition, because that will be very unfair as the government is giving us all the neccessary assistance needed for the success of the surgery”, she concluded.
Also speaking, the patient’s uncle, Malam Umar Isa Yaya, who is also in AKTH with the family expressed gratitude to Governor Bindow of Adamawa State for sponsoring the medical trip to Kano and donating N5m for the surgery.
Yaya further denied that any discussion about taking Isa to India as speculated by an online media in their report.
“There was no such discussion between Adamawa government and Isa’s family. India was never mentioned, the agreement was to bring him to Kano for investigation and surgery, which the governor sponsored from his pocket not the State coffers”.
“I wonder why any journalist will fabricate such a story to tarnish the image of the Adamawa state government and spoil the good relationship between my family and the government,” he lamented.
