TOLU'S DIARY

TUESDAYS 10AM

Dear diary,
I was so emotional this week. Sorry I have to wet you with my tears. A man who was shot by an officer of the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corp (NSCDC) finally gave up the ghost despite making it to the hospital on time. Let me shock you, medical personnel didn’t attend to him because of #3,500 gloves. This is the situation of our healthcare system. Many souls have been lost in the hospital due to these questionable reasons. Aren’t doctors and nurses meant to play their own quota in saving lives?
 How long will medical personnels continue to abandon their work for irrelevant matters? When will they start to urgently treat patients on emergency rather than asking for hospital card and other things? When will human lives matter to them than bills? Why are our systems in this country all going wrong?
Who else will help to lend a voice to heal our land? No wonder many of her citizens are pledging allegiance to other nations. We have to fix the city and not flee the city. ‘No place be like my country’ Ebenezer Obey sang in his old record.
 Diary, we have to make this line become factual. Let everybody play their part in raising the giant of Africa; Nigeria. Let's join hands to save her. See you again guys, love you.
