Minister sponsors 240 surgeries in Plateau
About 240 patients were operated upon in Plateaucentral senatorial district during a medical outreach organized by the Minister of Water Resources, Sarah Ochekpe. Pastor Sonnie Reng, coordinator of the programme, said the outreach which began last week ended with more than 6,000 persons receiving medical attention. “We were able to attend to over 6, 000 people who came to us with different medical challenges and about 240 were operated upon. The minor challenge we had was that of volunteers, some of whom unceremoniously left us simply because there was no allowance,” he said.
