Wife of the patient, Sadiya made the call in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria , in Sokoto on Sunday.

Salisu alleged that her husband along side other stranded Nigerians had made contacts with the Nigerian Mission in Egypt, lamenting that their efforts proved abortive.
According to her, her husband is in dire condition in Egypt due to the present predicament.
While commending President Muhammadu Buhari and Minister of Foreign Affairs, Mr Geoffrey Onyeama, for the repatriation of Nigerians abroad, Salisu urged the government to extend the gesture to Nigerians stranded in Egypt and other countries.
Also commenting, a relative of the stranded patient, Habibu Malumfashi, disclosed that Salisu left the county through the Malam Aminu Kano International Airport, after an arrangement with an Egyptian hospital for medical treatment.
Malumfashi said his brother and other stranded Nigerians in Egypt were hassled by the daily financial challenges.
”Many of the stranded persons are broke and incurred high hotel and hospital bills due to the prolonged stay in a foreign land,” he said.
The government had so far repatriated hundreds of Nigerians stranded in the U.S. and other countries.

The items, which comprised bags of rice, beans, onion, vegetable oil and other essential cooking condiments, alongside cash donations, were done under the auspice of her pet project, O5 Initiative”.
The items were received by the representatives of the correctional centres on Thursday in Asaba.
The correctional centres are those in Sapele, Warri, Kwale, Agbor and Ogwasi-Uku.
Mrs Okowa said that the O5 Initiative, at its inception, had made a pledge to the correctional centres that come every June 1, the inmates would be fed and taken care of by the initiative.
“By God’s grace, we have been consistent with keeping with that promise by ensuring that every year, we cook and distribute food to the inmates.
“There is, however, a slight variation in this year’s celebration because of the COVID-19 pandemic.
“In order to keep up with the social distancing rule, we are rather than visiting the prisons, handing over the items to the representatives to help us reach them,” she said.
Okowa explained that arrangement had been made with the administrators of the various centres to ensure that the food items were prepared and given to the inmates.
She expressed the hope that they would do better than the team would have done by going there physically.
Receiving the items on behalf of Warri Correctional Centre, the Secretary to the Warri South Local Government, Mr Joseph Oribioye, said that the gesture proved that the benefactor was in touch with mankind.
“I must say that the charitable action of the governor’s wife is a laudable one. She has made it a point of duty to always reach out to the poor, an indication that she is in constant touch with the plight of the vulnerable.
“As she celebrates her birthday this year, it is our wish that she is blessed with all the good things of life and that her family is protected from evil,” he said.
Also, the Special Assistant to the Chairman, Sapele Local Government Council, Mr Felix Ayemideor, who received on behalf of Sapele correctional centre, said that he was not surprised by the gesture as the Initiative had always reached out to the inmates since its inception.

Children’s Day: Delta governor’s wife donates food items to orphans
Dame Edith Okowa, the wife of the Delta Governor and Founder, O5 Initiative, on Wednesday distributed food items to 44 orphanage homes across the state to mark this year’s Children’s Day celebration.
The News Agency of Nigeria reports that the items include 100 bags of 50kg of rice, beans, cartons of noodles, beverages, cooking oil and tomato paste.
NAN reports that the items were received by the wives of the chairmen of the 25 local councils of the state on behalf of the orphanage homes in the state.
Presenting the items, Dame Okowa said: “It has become our culture on every May 27 to prepare food for children all over Delta and have them come together to have fun and be reminded of how important they are to us.
“Because of the pandemic, however, we were not able to hold a party this year because of the need to observe the social distancing rule.
”At the same time, our goal has remained to put smile on the faces of the less privileged in the society.
”For me, helping others is a calling and not a job, which is why I do not believe that anything, not even the pandemic is capable of stopping me from doing the needful”.
She, however, advised children to remain indoors and adhere to directives of their parents and the government, assuring them that they would in no time, have their normal lives back.
“We need our children to stay safe at this critical time because we cannot afford to lose those who are the future of our nation”, she said.
The governor’s wife also advised the caregivers of the various orphanages to take necessary precautions needed to protect the children in their homes from the pandemic.
She also advised them to avoid all forms of visitations to the homes, emphasising that items could be received from those who intended to support without their having to be with the children.
The governor’s wife prayed for the children in the state and across the nation, saying rather than fall victim to the pandemic, they would be preserved to play their role as future leaders.
