The management of the Federal University Oye-Ekiti (FUOYE), and some members of staff have contributed generously to clear the bills of a surgical operation being urgently demanded for a 400 Level student of the University, Miracle Ayodele. Their donation also covered other logistics.
Miss. Ayodele was admitted at the Ekiti State Teaching Hospital (EKSUTH) after an unfortunate auto accident around Basiri area of Ado-Ekiti, the state capital.
Ayodele, had earlier on Friday, sent out a passionate appeal to governments, corporate bodies and individuals to assist her financially towards undergoing surgery to remove her right leg.
Speaking with journalists, Ayodele’s mother confirmed that the patient had undergone a surgery which cost almost three hundred thousand naira but the doctors confirmed that the leg would have to be removed to save her life.
She said the surgery would cost over two hundred thousand naira calling on good spirited individuals, government and corporate bodies to come to her aid.
In a swift response to the development, members of the management team and some other members of staff, moved with sympathy after reading the touching news report on the various WhatsApp groups of the University community, donated money which covered her medical surgery and other logistics.
Speaking on behalf of the University, Dr. Adedayo Sobowale who is the Senior Special Adviser (SSA) to the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Sunday Abayomi Fasina, said: “On Friday evening when the news broke that our student has sent an SOS message to the public to assist her on surgical operation to remove her right leg and relieve her of the pains associated with the unfortunate auto accident she had, we all felt for her and once the news was confirmed, sympathetic members of the FUOYE management team led by the VC and other staff members, decided to contribute to save the girl.
“We are glad that our efforts have paid off and she is now out of danger following the payment of her medical expenses and the provision made for other logistics. This is just a proof of the immense love the FUOYE staff and management have for our students. We thereby wish the young lady the best in every of her future endeavours.”
