Frank Kokori, a chieftain of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in Delta State has cried out about his health challenges.
The former General Secretary of the Nigeria Union of Petroleum and Natural Gas Workers (NUPENG), said he was receiving treatment for a kidney-related disease, stating that life was fast leaving him due to excruciating pains.
In an interview with Nigerian Tribune, Kokori claimed NUPENG had abandoned him in a hospital in Warri, where the hospital management switched off the air conditioner.
The former NUPENG scribe complained that those who should cater for his wellbeing had abandoned him in a “third class” hospital in Warri. Kokori also disclosed that he has been in the hospital for a while.
He said: “Tell the world that Kokori is dead and risen. The only man in Warri who can handle kidney problems is Horeb Hospital Warri.
“But I’m facing other challenges. The Air Conditioner is not working. And AC can keep me alive till morning. What a country!
“Mobilise yourselves. I have something to tell this country, please. Please do your best.
“Tell them I can pay any amount, but let them switch on the AC for me because I’m dying.
“The AC went off. Please do your best. Flash it. I can come alive again, but I just want the world to know that if I survive, I’ll shame the leaders of this country.
“Shame on them. How can Kokori be in a third-class hospital? The People are trying their best because I know it’s a diesel issue.
“The AC is off. Two of my foster children are here with me. I’ve sent one to meet the hospital management that they should do everything that the AC is switched on, that when I’m out, I’ll pay. That I’m dying.
“I’ve called on NUPENG that this is what they’ve done to their leaders. That NUPENG could not even take care of me. It’s sad. God bless everybody.”
