Ailing Bayelsa Medical Doctor Gets Lifeline From Governor Diri

By Samuel I. Tarawou

Yenagoa:

Reports reaching us indicate that His Excellency, Senator Douye Diri, the Executive Governor of Bayelsa State has graciously approved the sum of Ten Million Naira (N10,000,000) to facilitate the treatment abroad of bedridden Bayelsa doctor, Dr. Fere David.

News of the bedridden doctor became public about a fortnight ago when the Juliet Pulu Foundation led by its national president, Juliet Pulu Zifawei, accompanied by some journalists, visited the sick doctor to empathize with him and offer him hope and comfort.

The doctor, whose humanitarian and selfless lifestyle has since become public knowledge, is battling with kidney failure and has been undergoing hemodialysis for several weeks now. He has been referred overseas for a critical kidney transplant at the whopping sum of Ten Million Naira.

In their bid to raise the hefty sum, the Juliet Pulu Foundation prevailed on well meaning Nigerians to make generous donations as well as reached out to the governor for assistance.

Their efforts have finally paid off. The governor heard their passionate appeal and has approved the sum of Ten Million Naira to enable them fly the doctor abroad for the transplant.

With this cheering news, it can only be hoped that the young doctor would make a full and complete recovery.
