COVID -19: Ex- Gov Ajimobi In Coma At First Cardiologist Hospital!

Former Governor Isiaka Abiola Ajimobi is said to have slipped into coma in a Lagos hospital.

Senator Ajimobi, who took ill in May this year was evacuated to the First Cardiologist Hospital Lagos, for special care after he was diagnosed of the novel coronavirus disease, a pandemic that is humbling nations and authorities around the world.

The ex - Governor who was diagnosed of the dreadful disease barely 17 days ago,  slipped into unconsciousness on June 8.

According to Global Excellence in its report which it reckoned as authoritative, doctors are battling to revive him at the First Cardiologist Hospital.

The highbrow hospital is one of the selected few private health facilities in the Centre of Excellence permitted to treat special COVID - 19 patients.

It was the hospital where the former chief of staff to President Buhari, Mallam Abba Kyari, was treated of coronavirus before he died.

It was also where the Senator representing Lagos East, Bayo Osinowo, was being treated of an undisclosed brief ailment before he lost the battle to the cold hand of death today.

Inside sources informed that when the former governor’s health deteriorated after he suffered cardiac arrest the first time and was placed on a ventilator at the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) immediately, doctors attending to him were said to have recommended a particular drug for his treatment.

 But the drug could not be found in Nigeria, according to sources; hence, a private jet was reportedly deployed to purchase the drug in London.

Still, sources added, Senator Ajimobi’s condition would not improve and he had to be put on the second ventilator with the hope that he recovers. “Although, he is alive, he has been in coma since he was placed in the second ICU,” the source divulged.

Former Governor Ajimobi, who is the deputy national chairman of the ruling All Progressive Congress (APC), is said to be a diabetic patient, and coronavirus a challenge for people with diabetes. He suddenly took ill in Abuja late May 2020 allegedly after attending one of the political meetings with his party chieftains.
