Crime / How Poor Nigeria’s Health System Killed A Young Female Philanthropist, Kaffy Har by rmo19: 1:04pm On Feb 19, 2019
—How Poor Nigeria’s Health System killed a Young female Philanthropist, Kaffy Harbdul

YBTC News—Kafayat Abdulazeez, 25 years old Muslim lady was not feeling too fine on Valentine’s Day, Thursday, February 14, 2019. She left for Asokoro General Hospital, Abuja, where she was admitted, and the doctors diagnosed that she had pneumonia.

After the initial treatment she regained her strength. But painfully, the following day, Friday, her situation became worse and the hospital was no longer as responsive as they were supposed to be.

Mobile oxygen which was supposed to be used on her was not used. A drug was prescribed by her doctors, but the nurses didn’t give the prescription to the family until a day after. By then it was too late. That was how we lost our beloved friend, colleague and advocate.

We lost our friend, our volunteer, an anti-human trafficking, Co-founder of Al-imran Islamic Foundation and health advocate, Miss Kafayat Abdulazeez (Kaffy Harbdul), due to the carelessness of our medical practitioners and our unhealthy health system. We cannot call it a medical mistake. It was clearly a case of lack of value for life by our medical practitioners.

It is important to know that access to proper health treatment is a human right. Denying people treatment is an abuse of the right of citizens. Lack of value for the life of a patient is violation of the rights of the patient.

Miss Kafayat would have been alive today if her treatment was taken seriously at Asokoro General Hospital, Abuja. She would have survived if those on duty treated her with a sense of emergency and urgency. While she was in the emergency unit, her health was not taken as an emergency. Her family, friends begged and cried but no empathy was shown. A patient in the hospital had to place a call to doctors and kept begging on her behalf just to be treated, but all efforts proved abortive.

A lady who impacted communities and the less privileged. She had a lineup of community projects for this month under her foundation, Al-imran Islamic foundation. So many indigent people depended on her to put a smile on their faces. She is also a volunteer with Devatop Centre for Africa Development and Project Pink Blue and more....

YBTC News—On Friday, 28th, December,2018, Nigeria lost one of it’s few remaining political leaders that participated actively in setting up both the first and second republics.

-300,000 National ID cards ready for collection, NIMC says

YBTC NEWS-The National Identity Management Commission (NIMC) has said that over 300,000 national identity cards for those who enrolled in 2012 are ready for collection.

NIMC Spokesman, Loveday Ogbonna, urged enrollees in the year 2012, up to August 2013 and who were yet to pick up their cards, to do so immediately.

Ogbonna said that those concerned should visit the enrolment centres where they registered and pick up their cards, which had since been printed and ready for collection.

He said that the commission had pasted names of enrollees whose cards had been printed and awaiting collection at various centres, to enable such individuals check and present themselves for card collection.

According to him, some of the people in this category may have changed the phone numbers they used to register, hence they are not able to receive text messages informing them that their cards are ready.
