Goodluck-Jonathan-visits-Idris-Wada-in-HospitalGovernor Idris Wada of Kogi state was in high spirits yesterday when President Goodluck Jonathan paid him a visit at the private hospital where he is presently receiving treatment for injuries sustained when his official car crashed at Emi Woro village in Kogi state last Friday.

The president who arrived the Cedarcrest Hospital, Garki II Abuja at about 3:15pm, was received by Minister of Health Prof. Onyebuchi Chukwu and the hospital’s Chief Medical Director (CMD), Dr. Felix Ogedengbe.

Dr. Jonathan, who was accompanied by some of his aides, wore a brown stripped kaftan with a red cap and a pair of brown shoes to match.

After exchanging pleasantries with the minister who got to the hospital much earlier, the President was shown to the governor’s ward.

Governor Wada who wore a light blue kaftan with a cap, slightly raised up his body and stretched out his arm for a handshake upon sighting the president. The two cracked some jokes and the governor showed the President his right leg which is in a plaster just as the doctor explained the nature of the injury to the President while the Minister of Health listened with rapt attention.

The President wished the governor speedy recovery before departing 15 minutes later.


  1. Wish you speedy recovery, government should also please help update our hospitals & their facilities to save the country millions of dollars spent on trips by those seeking medical attention outside the country.
    Power, Road & other infrastructures also inclusive.

    Nigerian Governor’s Forum needs the prayer of all Nigerians in this New Year. The past years, especially the Year 2012 was a trying moment for the Governors. The forum lost one of them in the person of Late Patrick Yakowa, former Governor of Kaduna State who died in the military helicopter crash on December 15 2012, while returning from the burial of the father of Special Adviser to the President Jonathan on documentation, Oronto Douglas.
    Taraba State Governor, Danbaba Suntai who is a trained pilot, is still in German hospital now after his plane crashed on October 26, 2012 when it wanted to land at Yola Airport. The last tragic incidence among Nigerian Governors in year 2012 was that of Kogi State Governor, Idris Wada who was involved in a ghastly motor accident on December 28 at Emi Woro village in Ajaokuta Local Government Area. The Governor of Enugu State, Sullivan Chime is also currently suffering from an undisclosed ailment is in hospital in Abroad while the Deputy Governor is acting in his capacity.
    While others may see these as mere coincidence and one of those things, I see it as a plan of devil to distract our Governors from discharging their duties well. Some of these Governors fought a strong political and spiritual battle before they immerge the Governors of their different states and I believe their enemies somewhere are not happy; therefore they need prayer for them to succeed and overcame all odds.
    If the head is affected, the whole body will be surely affected, that is why I am calling on Nigerians to be praying for their Governors so that whatever that affects them will not affect the progress of the state and so that the money meant for developing their states will not be use to pay hospitals bills in home and abroad.
    On their part, Nigeria Governor’s forum must come together this New Year and pray for God’s protection. Governors Rotimi Amaechi who is the Chairman must call his colleagues together and find time to pray in this New Year. Governor Babangida Aliyu who is also the chairman of Northern Governor’s forum must work together with Governor Amaechi to quickly organize a prayer session for their colleagues early this year and most especially they must pray for the speedy recovery of their colleagues in hospitals.
    I also call on all the aides of Governors in different states to also find time to pray for themselves in this New Year. Many political aides and aide-de-camp to the Governors have died in the process of discharging their duties. They must pray that they will not die instead of their bosses. It will be recalled that many of the Governor political aides have died or critically injured in the past years. For instance, the Principal Private Secretary to Governor Adams Oshiomole, Olaitan Oyerinde was murdered in his cold blood on May 5, 2012 and some of his aides also lost their lives when a tipper ramp into their vehicles. The aides of Governor Yakowa, Dauda Tsoho died with him in the helicopter crash in Bayelsa state. The aide-de-camp (ADC) of Governor Wada, Idris Mohammed who was an Assistance Superintendent of Police (ASP), died on the spot in the ghastly motor accident while eight others are also injured and they are still in hospitals. In another development, six aides of Governor Danbaba Suntai were also injured with him in their plane crash in Yola and it took the interventions of Human-right activists before they were also taken abroad for a proper medical care in Germany. These are just to mention few of the cases of the predicament of some of the aides of our Governors.
    Therefore, as we are praying for our Governors, let us also pray for their aides. Also as the Governor are taking their time to pray they must also give their aides chance to pray for themselves too, because there is equality before the law and no live is more important than the other.
    More importantly the Governors must limit their speed while on the road and they must be security conscious before they embark on any journey.
    I wish Governor Dambaba Suntai and Governor Idris Wada a speedy recovery.
    Governor Rotimi Ameachi and his colleagues must please take note.
    Happy New Year to all Nigerian 36 states Governor.
