2023: “Osinbajo’s hands no longer tied”

At a hospital in Ikeja, Lagos State, Vice President Yemi Osinbajo underwent surgery on his femur.

The treatment was carried out by a team of six specialized doctors, according to a statement issued late Saturday by the hospital management and signed by its Medical Director, Dr Adedoyin Dosunmu-Ogunbi.

According to the statement;

“The Vice President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, His Excellency, Professor Yemi Osinbajo, SAN, GCON, was admitted to the Duchess International Hospital GRA, Ikeja, Lagos, today on account of a fracture of his right femur (thigh bone), possibly related to a longstanding injury associated with a game of squash.

He had a surgical operation performed by a team of specialist doctors, including Dr Wallace Ogufere (Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon); Dr Om Lahoti (Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon); Dr Babajide Lawson (Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon); Dr Ken Adegoke (Consultant in Anaesthesia & Critical Care); Dr Oladimeji Agbabiaka (Consultant Anaesthetist); and Dr Adedoyin Dosunmu-Ogunbi (Consultant Physician & Medical Director).”

The operation was successful, and he is expected to be discharged within the next few days.”

Naija News 247 recalls that the Vice President had earlier stated in a tweet that he had been hospitalised for surgery.
