President Goodluck Jonathan on Monday visited Kogi State Governor, Idris Wada, at the Cedarcrest Hospital, Abuja, where he is receiving treatments for the injuries he sustained in an auto crash last Friday.
The President, who arrived at the private hospital in Garki II with a few aides, was received by the Minister of Health, Onyebuchi Chukwu, and the hospital’s Chief Medical Director (CMD), Felix Ogedengbe, before he was ushered into the governor’s ward.
The president, who was dressed in cream traditional attire with a red cap, spent about 15 minutes with Mr Wada before emerging from the private ward.
Though President Jonathan did not speak to the press, his cheerful mien as he greeted the hospital staff and journalists around, beaming with smile was an obvious show of satisfaction with the pace of recovery of the governor, who broke a thighbone in the accident.
The Chief Medical Director of the hospital confirmed the positive disposition of the president in a brief chat with journalists insisting that the governor was doing well after a surgery and would be discharged from the hospital “in a few days.”
