The Mediatrix Development Foundation, founded by the wife of the Governor of Cross River State, Dr. Linda Ayade says one Mrs Patricia Agim who was sponsored by the foundation for the treatment of toxic goitre has undergone a successful surgery.

Mrs. Agim is said to have been one of those who thronged the St. Luke’s General Hospital in Obudu when the foundation organized an outreach.

“She was examined and the test result showed that she had toxic goitre which was very complicated and if she was operated then, she will have died and so we gave her money to pay for anti-suppressant which she took for two weeks,” said Mr. Jeffery Adamade, the Chief Operating Officer of the foundation in an interview with CrossRiverWatch.

“We later moved her to Abuja, when they conducted the test, they discovered that it was still very high and placed her on drugs for another two weeks, and on Easter Monday she was successfully operated upon,” Adamade added.

Mrs. Agim hails from Bassang in Obanliku Local Government Area of northern Cross River State.

And, Adamade stated that the gesture was in furtherance to their commitment to deliver on the thematic areas of interest which is to support programs that improve the lives of widows, vulnerable, orphans and youths in the state and Nigeria.

When contacted, the patient told CrossRiverWatch that: “I am fine now, I can take palp, I am very grateful to the wife of the Governor for her benevolence and love shown me, she is like my savior and Messiah.”
