When 26 years old Amaka Ofodile, woke up on 31st of May 2018, she as full of joy and bubbling with life, as that day was her 24th year birthday.
When she left for work on that joyous day, she had no premonition of what awaits her on the way as it turned out to be one of the darkest day of her life.
She was rushed to the Federal Medical Centre Asaba, where she has been receiving treatment for the past two years.
Ofodile had a fatal accident on her way to work.
She was lucky to survive the accident with a spinal chord injury but the other occupants were not as lucky as they died on the spot.
According to her, she has been barring the cost of her treatment alone and she is presently indebted to the hospital to the tune of five hundred thousand naira.
Seventeen year old, Blessing Atokwu has been admitted at the Federal Medical Centre Asaba for leg cancer and has spent a lot of more on her treatment.
There are many others like Amaka Ofordile and Blessing Atokwu owing the hospital huge sum of money and their treatment truncated as result of their indebtedness.
The joy of these patients knew no bound when the former Secretary to the State Government, Comrade Ovuozourie Macaulay paid them an unscheduled visit and offset their hospital bills to the tune of two point one million naira.
