Mayowa Ahmed Cancer Fund: The Generous Nigerians & The Corrupt Crooks

July 30, 2016 – Mayowa Ahmed Fundraising Campaign: The Generous Nigerians & The Corrupt Crooks

Within three days, kind Nigerians had come together and donated over 32 million Naira to a stage 4 cancer patient, Mayowa Ahmed.

I have never seen such benevolence before. This noble gesture exonerates Nigerians mostly portrayed negatively in the media abroad. It also shows that Nigerians both home and abroad, can set positive examples in all spheres of our society.

Unfortunately, most times, anything to do with huge amount of money ends up in a mess. I am not particularly going to express my opinion about the alleged scam involving the Ahmed family, but what concerns me is the rottenness exposed by this mess.

The campaign led by the “Alakada” actress Toyin Aimakhu with the trending hashtag #SaveMayowa exposed the level of decay in our country, which can be traced to poor governance in the past. Government of any country must ensure they put in place necessary infrastructures for its citizens; such as good hospitals, roads and transportation. The saga highlights the need for transparency not just for those in government but every citizen of our great nation. The APC led government is working tirelessly to achieve this.

Why are we unable to get definite answers from our doctors within the country and there is always the need to get second opinion abroad. In western countries like the United Kingdom, statistics shows that up to 5,000 doctors are Nigerians. These countries including the United States have many Nigerians occupying positions as top doctors, matrons, lawyers, teachers, politicians and are leading in their various fields.

Fighting corruption certainly does not end with the government alone, but citizens ought to be honest in their dealings. I pray for Mayowa Ahmed. God certainly still is in the business of healing people and will heal Mayowa totally. I just hope the funds are used for its sole purpose.

  1. Is a baddest thing say pipul are use every thing to do wayo. Is also pain say doctor is not sabi work for Nigeria until you are enter oroplane to America or another place. Na wetin can we do so that we are be like America or Germiny or Londons? Even Nigeria pipul wey are dey there are sabi something. Buy when they come back Nigeria they are forget wetin they know bifor. Doctor weyris dey for Nigeria is also not sabi something. But when he is go to America he will sabi something. Even me weyris not sabi something, if I am goes America I go sabi something. Is why I am beg Omotola since 2005 make she send me go America but she no gree. I no want to die like mumu.

  2. My prayer for the said Mayowa is for her to get well. Writer, I don’t blame you at all, so its only the APC members that are working tirelessly for what in Nigeria?
