President Goodluck Jonathan Monday visited Kogi State governor, Idris Wada, at the Cedarcrest Hospital, Abuja, where he was receiving treatment from injuries he sustained in the auto crash that claimed the life of his Aide-de -Camp (ADC), Ibrahim Idris.
Also, the state Deputy Governor, Mr. Yomi Awoniyi, who was on a foreign trip in the United Kingdom, yesterday returned to the country due to the crash.
The governor was involved in a road accident, while returning from the annual Igala Educational Summit at the Kogi State University, Anyigba.
Accompanied by few of his aides, the President was received at Garki II premises of the private hospital by the Minister of Health, Onyebuchi Chukwu, and the hospital’s Chief Medical Director (CMD), Felix Ogedengbe.
The President later went into the governor’s ward, where he spent quarter of an hour before he returned to the State House.
Clad in a cream coloured Ijaw attire with a red cap, the President refused to grant interview with journalists, who had anticipated he would grant them one.
However, Ogedengbe told journalists after the visit that the governor was recuperating and will be discharged from the hospital “in a few days.”
He said the governor, “is already doing step-climbing. He is doing very well at the moment. You know it was a severe injury. We have continued to watch out for any other problem that he might have but at this stage, we have not seen any other problem at all.
“From the medical point of view, he is quite healthy and he should be ready to go back home in a couple of days. I can only at this stage tell you that he will be ready to go back home in a few days but I won’t be able to tell you specifically which day. He is not going to be in the hospital for weeks, he does not need to be here for weeks.”
