Borno State Governor, Professor Engr Babagana Umara Zulum, Mni Fnse, on Tuesday approved the release of N10m to save the life of Mbahi Sarki Suleiman.
The victim is a 29-year old 300 level student of geography at the University of Maiduguri, who is in critical need of kidney transplant.
The student hails from Yara in Hawul local government area of southern Borno.
The support came after the student and his mother featured on multiple times on Brekete family, a morning programme in Human Rights Radio in Abuja, hosted by Ahmed Isa, popularly called ‘ordinary President’, with direct appeal to Governor Zulum to save Bitrus.
The family sought for N9m being the cost of the transplant as they had a donor in waiting.
On Tuesday, January 12, the family’s appeal was brought to Zulum’s attention by his media team, following which the Governor directed the immediate release of N10m to fund Bitrus’ transplant.
Whereas the family needed N9m, Zulum added N1m in case of unforeseen circumstance.
The following day, Wednesday, Saratu Sarki Bitrus, mother of the student, returned to Brekete family programme with her son, and confirmed on air, that she had received bank alert of N10m as directed by governor Zulum and she had already made payments to a hospital in Abuja, which is to undertake the transplant scheduled to hold this week.
Speaking with tears of joy, the patient, Mbahi told audience that it was he who saw the deposit alert of N10m in his mother’s phone.
Mbahi Sarki Suleiman said;
“Yesterday (Tuesday) my mother gave me her phone to show me a deposit of five thousand naira that someone had made to her account and while I was going through that, I suddenly saw an incoming deposit and it was N10m, I became shocked and showed my mum, we all knelt down in disbelieve and started crying.
Later on, an aid to the governor called to ask if we had received the alert and we confirmed it. I do not what to say to my Governor. professor Babagana Umara Zulum, I can only wish that God blesses him and make him greater than he is, nothing I say can show the extent of what I feel about that intervention to save my life. I currently survive on dialysis until I undergo a transplant”.
