A Nigerian man has taken to social media to mourn his friend, who allegedly died due to Nigeria’s poor health care system.
The man identified as Iwuala Nnamdi said his friend fell ill and was rushed to the hospital. Unfortunately, none of the hospitals he was taken to had oxygen, ventilators, or enough bed space.
Mourning his friend in a touching tribute, Nnamdi wrote,
“May Nigeria not happen to you, may you not be sick in Nigeria, only son gone. Always check your BP, truth be told you need to watch your health because as soon as you get very sick in Nigeria without discovering it early you have no chance.
“Farewell my brother my friend, I pray your young wife bears this loss and take heart, till we all meet again wherever it is. My heart bleeds for you !!”
