In Adamawa, Abbo sponsors surgery of 8-year-old Boko Haram victim

Senator Elisha Ishaku Abbo has offered to sponsor the surgery of an eight years old boy in Michika local government who broke his hand while fleeing from Boko Haram attack, some three years ago.

This is sequel to his visit to the Federal Medical Centre (FMC), Yola last week where he had equally offset the medical bills of patients on admission for varying critical health issues.

On the occasion he had donated N1m into paupers’ funds of the hospital which is meant to take care of patients who cannot afford their medical bills.

The senator, who represents Adamawa North senatorial district, offered to pay the medical expenses for the eight years old boy to alleviate his suffering and give a new lease of life.

The senator had stopover in Michika when a good Samaritan presented the boy, whose fractured borne cut through his skin, a painful condition he has been living with for three years because his parents could not afford the medical expenses,  and opted to assist.

Abbo directed that the boy be taken to FMC Yola immediately for surgery and offered to care for burdens while the boy recuperates.

Following the successful surgery, Sen Abbo thanked God for using him to put smile on the faces of the boy and parents and relations.

“I am filled with joy to receive the news of his successful surgery. I’m so humbled to be found worthy by God to use to bring relief to the boy. I beg God to use me for other good deeds.”
