Rotimi Amaechi appeals to Nigerians to raise money for victim’s treatment

The Minister of Transportation, Rotimi Amaechi, has appealed to Nigerians to raise money for the treatment of those injured in the Kaduna-Abuja train attack.


The politician made this appeal on Wednesday, March 29, during his visit to the 44 Nigerian Army Reference Hospital in Kaduna where the victims are being treated.

According to him, the Army have been treating the patients without any charge since the incident, and have administered drugs not manufactured in Nigeria to the patients.

His exact words: ”The CMD and I have been talking, the army has not charged one kobo on any patient, and they have given the maximum medical treatment that they can give to any patients.

”You saw the patients with burns and then the one that has bullet located in her heart. They are bringing an expert tomorrow for that one to see if there will be surgery or not to take out the bullet.

”They said they have only seven (patients) left and the rest have been discharged. The ministry, and I think the federal government, are grateful to the Nigerian Army for providing such services.

But one thing I have said to the Nigerian people is to liaise with the hospital management and see how much money they can contribute for the treatment of the patients.

”Obviously those drugs are not manufactured here, the experts they are bringing from outside doesn’t work with the army, so they definitely have to pay them. We will try as much as possible to see what contributions we can make to the management of the hospital to assist in taking care of the patients.”
