Fate however had something different in stock for this young lady when sometime in year 2013, she woke up only to discover some parts of her body had swollen abnormally.
To say life hasn’t remained same since then for her is to utter the obvious. She ran from pillar to post, making endless efforts at trying to raise the medical bill charged by experts who would treat her.
Atoke’s story however changed Tuesday evening when the Ekiti State governor, Mr. Ayodele Fayose visited impromptu, the construction site of Ekiti State Secretariat of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP.
Governor Fayose had after acknowledging cheers from site workers and passersby moved upstairs to see for himself the level and quality of work done. He displayed his expertise in the field of construction, scolded some workers who were found wanting and later made some corrections as necessary.
As this continued, we watched from a fair distance, there was a conversation between the governor and Atoke, minutes later, he brought out his red pen, wrote something on paper and handed it with some cash unto Atoke. We closed in on her after the governor left and she was so glad to speak with us.
“I want to say a very big thank you to the governor, I am most grateful, the governor gave me this note and asked me to take it to the Chief Medical Director at the University Teaching Hospital, he said he should see to my case. I have suffered for the past 3 years but I know an end has come to my problem”, she explained.
As the doctors often say they care but God heals, it is my prayer that God will lay his healing hands upon Atoke Ayobami and make her joy complete. Dare to make a move, Ask and it shall be given!
