Nigeria's health sector is a joke... Our poor health facilities are responsible for most of d deaths suffered in dis country. Most hospitals and clinics aren't equipped for primary healthcare talk more of emergency services.. Imagine having to carry an emergency case from one hospital to d other...

Just stay behind keyboard and be typing trash. Do you know how many Nigerians artist that died in better equipped foreign hospital in the last 12 months?
If ur brain wasn't filled with mucus U'ld have understood my post was about our health sector preparedness for emergency services instead of d artistes death.. Ur case is more of an emergency case dan our health sector

tell dat senseless soul... majority of our celebs diebin Canada this yr despite Thier world class health system

If U had any drop of sense at all, U'll have been able to comprehend what my post is about.. I'm pretty sure U also have problems with ur vision as well becos I was clear wen I commented about our health sector emergency services preparedness
Since U both want to always compare with d western world, how many cases have u heard where an emergency case is moved from hospital to hospital??

Let's take this day to pray for Nigeria to help better this nation so that we that are left would have the benefit of retaining the best doctors who are continually migrating.

Hmmn. He might have had an aneurysm that wasn't caught early. I wonder if we have health facilities that can even detect aneurysms.

Why aneurysm ? That's only one of the possible diagnoses.

That's why I said it could be.

Lots of pple slump and die, but most people in Nigeria only associate that with heart diseases or stroke.

Most don't even know of aneurysms and I doubt that we have health facilities that can detect it.
