Vice President Yemi Osibanjo has undergone a successful surgery to treat his recurrent leg pains.
The team of doctors, specifically, Adedoyin Dosunmu-Ogunbi Medical Director, Duchess International Hospital, Ikeja made this confirmation in a statement released Saturday night.
Laolu Akande, the spokesperson to Mr Osinbajo, had in a tweet earlier, announced that the vice president had to undergo the surgery to treat a fracture in his right femur (thigh bone).
According to Mr Akande, the Vice President sustained the injury while playing squash.
“VP Osinbajo is in the hospital today for a surgical procedure on account of recurrent pain in the leg possibly sustained from an injury while playing squash. His doctors would give an update of the treatment later today,” the tweet reads.
The vice president was on Saturday admitted to the Duchess International Hospital in Ikeja, Lagos, and was treated properly in Lagos. As opposed to his principal, the President of the country and other politicians who flee the country for any medical needs, this is a huge encouragement.
The fact that Nigerian politicians, in this case the vice president operate local hospitals have given citizens a positive mindset.
“The operation was successful, and he is expected to be discharged within the next few days”, said Dr Adedoyin Dosunmu-Ogunbi, the Medical Director.
The team of experts who performed the surgery include, Dr. Wallace Ogufere, Dr. Om Lahoti and Dr. Babajide Lawson, all Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeons).
Others specialist doctors were Dr Dosunmu-Ogunbi (Consultant Physician), Dr. Ken Adegoke (Consultant in Anaesthesia & Critical Care) and Dr. Oladimeji Agbabiaka, Consultant Anaesthetists.
