FUTA varsity student seeks N12.5m for kidney transplant
FUTA varsity student seeks N12.5m for kidney transplant. An undergraduate at the Federal University of Technology, Akure, Ondo State, Mojeed Adegoke, has been diagnosed with chronic kidney disease and needs N12.5m to undergo a kidney transplant.
PUNCH Metro gathered that the 23-year-old was in his final year when he was diagnosed with a medical condition.
Speaking to our correspondent last Tuesday, Adegoke said his condition started with headaches early the previous year.
He said, “I started having severe headaches one day but it did not stop. I could not continue my final year project because of this. I later went to my school clinic. After my complaint, my school referred me to the Federal Medical Centre, where I was examined and diagnosed with chronic kidney disease.”
The victim’s sister, Aminat Oladejo, said her brother was still alive because family members had been paying N40,000 to the hospital for dialysis every four days.
“Our parents are also trying, but we need help. It is God that has been seeing us through,” she added.
Our correspondent gathered that Adegoke’s family members, friends, and concerned persons had assisted in raising the sum of N2.7m as part payment for his kidney transplant.
A consultant physician at the Afe Babalola University Multi-System Hospital, Ekiti State, Dr. Stephen Oguntola, said the student was admitted to the hospital after being referred from the FMC, adding that his condition was critical.
In a medical report signed by Oguntola, our correspondent observed that Adegoke’s six-month dialysis and his kidney transplant would cost N14,464,000.
