Governor 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.
