- A woman identified as Mrs. Folakemi who hails from Osun State adamantly refused for her huge goitre to be removed, and demanded a sum of N300K instead.
- The lady’s decision left many in awe as medical professionals offered to conduct the surgery free of charge but the woman refused to undergo the operation despite persuasion from the NGO that was on her case.
Mrs. Folakemi from Ede local government in Osun State recently became a focal point of online discussions due to a surprising decision that left netizens in awe.
Afflicted by a huge goitre, her situation took a favourable turn when a charitable offer of free medical services presented itself.
Having previously sought medical assistance to alleviate her suffering, Mrs. Folakemi was presented with an opportunity for cost-free surgery by a team of doctors. Contrary to expectations, she declined the medical offer and instead requested the monetary contributions that had been raised on her behalf.
Despite efforts from the non-governmental organization (NGO) to persuade her otherwise, Mrs. Folakemi remained firm in her decision, opting to take the N300,000 contributed on her behalf before returning to the village.
