In a typical play out of the saying that the rich also cry, Nigeria’s President of the Senate, Senator Godswill Akpabio, has narrated how he lost his first grandchild to medical neglect in a government hospital.

Speaking during the ministerial screening on the floor of the upper legislative chamber on Friday in Abuja, during the screening of Tunji Alausa as a ministerial nominee, the former Akwa Ibom State governor said that the incident happened in 2019.

“Every other person has been a victim of medical neglect,” Akpabio said.

“My first grandchild in 2019 in a federal medical centre died through bleeding. He was receiving drip and it was tissued in the night — there was no help,” he added.

“He was looking for water to drink. He rolled on the floor outside and entered the early morning dew. No doctor, no nurse. He bled until he lost 60 percent of his blood and almost going mental, he struggled and fell on the floor.

“By that time, he had gone into a coma,” Senator Akpabio noted.

Further narrating his first grandchild died, Senator Akpabio added, “I struggled. They went and brought a defibrillator to attempt to revive the heart, but it did not work”.

“I used my hand and struggled with my personal physician, I could not revive him. I had to close his eyes and put him in the mortuary,” said Senator Akpabio lamented.
