Osinbajo’s Successful Surgery In The Country Excites Nigerians
Nigerians across the country have expressed joy following Saturday night’s reports from doctors that performed surgical operation on Vice President Yemi Osinbajo in Nigeria said the operation was successful.
The surgery was “to treat the recurring pain caused by a fracture in Mr Vice President’s leg.”
The Medical Director, Duchess International Hospital, Ikeja, Dr Adedoyin Dosunmu-Ogunbi, said the Vice President “is alert and well.”
Dosunmu-Ogunbi’s statement was released by the Senior Special Assistant to the President on Media and Publicity, Office of the Vice President, Mr. Laolu Akande.
Duchess Hospital in a release titled, “Successful Medical Treatment of the Vice President,” said Osinbajo had a surgical operation performed by a team of specialist doctors.
The statement read: “The Vice President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, His Excellency, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, GCON, was admitted to the Duchess International Hospital GRA, Ikeja, Lagos, today on account of a fracture of his right femur (thigh bone), possibly related to a longstanding injury associated with a game of squash.

His doctors would give an update of the treatment later today.”
