Peter Obi, the Labour Party’s presidential candidate in the 2023 election, recently visited the Saving Little Hearts Program by Hospitals for Humanity at the Cardiocare Multi-Specialist Hospital in Abuja.

In a statement shared via his X handle, Obi highlighted the critical need for increased awareness, funding, and access to quality healthcare in Nigeria.

According to Obi’s statement, statistics show that 1 in 100 live births result in congenital heart defects, and with over 5,000,000 estimated births annually, about 50,000 children are affected. However, Dr. Segun Ajayi of Hospital For Humanity revealed that only a maximum of 1% receive treatment, which is very low compared to developed nations and other developing countries.

Obi found it heartwarming to visit the different wards and witness the life-saving surgeries performed by Hospitals for Humanity in Abuja. He believes that investing in healthcare is the number one measure of a country’s development.

Hospitals for Humanity has been providing these services voluntarily and free of charge for the past 10 years, performing several surgeries so far. Obi expressed his intention to support their goal of reaching 150 successful cases each year in his own small way and urged governments at all levels and wealthy Nigerians to also support them and do more for healthcare in the country.

In conclusion, Peter Obi’s visit to Hospitals for Humanity in Abuja has shed light on the critical state of healthcare in Nigeria and the urgent need for action. By working together and prioritizing healthcare, a healthier Nigeria can be created.
