Senator Monsurat Sunmonu has come to the rescue of Mrs Esther Oluwakemi Abiodun who is suffering from meningitis. Mrs Abiodun who is in her late 40s has also been abandoned by her husband for weeks.
Senator Sunmonu, who is seeking reelection into the Senate to represent Oyo Central, recently came in contact with the woman during one of her campaign events at Idiroko Amuloko Area in Ona Ara Local Government Area of the Oyo State.
The woman’s father had brought her to the senator, begging for financial assistance. After seeing the woman’s condition, Senator Sunmonu immediately directed that the patient be taken to the University College Hospital (UCH) for proper and immediate treatment, promising to take care of all the medical bills.
It was reliably gathered that Sunmonu, who is the ADC flagbearer for Oyo Central Senatorial District in the election coming up on Saturday, February 16, has so far been paying for Mrs Abiodun’s treatment at UCH where the she is presently admitted.
It is not clear how much has been paid so far but a close aide said it runs into hundreds of thousands.
