‘My mother didn’t live a long life because of the useless health care system in Nigeria.’ — Nigerian lady reveals

A Nigerian lady has claimed that the inefficient health care system in Nigeria is the cause of her mother’s untimely death which has since then, been a load of grief on her.

In recent times, the Nigerian health care system has been regarded as one which lacks the necessary facilities and also funding to cater for patient’s needs and meet up to expectations.

The lady @Nwando who recounted her loss released a statement on Twitter. She said;

“My mother didn’t live a long life because of the useless health care system in Nigeria.
Misdiagnosed her for WHAT SHE DIDN’T HAVE!! Feeding her with meds upon meds for what she didn’t have!! I watched her die slowly… Cos when she went to different hospitals abroad..

“They told her the said organ wasn’t having any issues but had now developed a major issue due to the medications these folks fed her for years.
You see… she was a fighter.. she promised me that she will not die till My lil sis and I are done with secondary school!

“This woman never stopped working her ass off!! She made sure we didn’t lack anything!! We never even knew they gave her a said amount of years she will live till I was cleaning her space one day and saw life assurance documents.. I will never forget everything I saw…

“I couldn’t eat for weeks, I went back to school in rage!! I couldn’t even focus. I was a mess!! I will quarrel with her like mad when she gets pissed and says “when I’m gone, just in two months you guys will cry and forget me” I will be mad!!
No type of prayer I didn’t say!!

“I wanted her HERE!! I wanted to make money and spoil her silly Cos she didn’t stop at any chance to make others happy, my mom sent a huge number of children to school… she did some things that vexed me like mad.. I kept begging her.. mommy what of YOU!!!

“Take care of you with this money so you can stay here for us… she called me selfish. I will never forget. So many things I cannot talk about. Maybe one day I can share in details but it haunts me!! It haunts me so bad that my mom could still be here with me if!!!

“Just if this country didn’t fail her!! If she had real friends that pushed her instead of only looking to ‘milk’ her!! If maybe we were more grown up and we could have ‘changed it for her better’.
It been 6 whole years and I have NOT FORGOTTEN YOU MOTHER!!

“The house I live in now was your sweat and blood.. All that I am today, you worked so hard for it.
“Nwando, you will make it. You’re so smart, you will never sleep your way to get opportunities, people will see you and just love you”… Fvck!!! I don’t know what triggered me!!” she concluded.

The lady further advises people to take care of their mothers when they are alive as she couldn’t do anything for her mother while she was alive.
