Even as American President Donald Trump promised to assist Nigeria with ventilators, officials of Anambra State Ministry of Health have discovered four unused ventilators packed in its central store in Awka, the state capital.

The ventilators were procured by the former Governor and vice presidential candidate of Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) Mr Peter Obi.

They, along with other medical equipment, were procured by Obi as part of the equipment for Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu University (COOU) Teaching Hospital Amaku Awka which he, Obi, built before leaving office.

Speaking on the shocking discovery, former Commissioner of Health in Obi’s administration Professor Amobi Linus Ilika said the ventilators were part of medical equipment bought by the government of that time shortly before it left office before some of them could be put to use.

Ilika told INDEPENDENT: “There could be more. I can’t remember how many we bought. They were part of medical equipment I bought in the United States of America.

They included kidney dialysis machines some of which may be obsolete if not used.

“The Government of Mr. Peter Obi bought six container loads of medical equipment and the contents were packed in that big store near Fire Service building along Enugu-Onitsha expressway.

“They should check for more equipment in that big store because there are a lot of them that were procured and secured there before we left office”.

Ilika lamented that when Obi left office a lot of things he started were abandoned and installation of the medical equipment might be part of that.
