President Muhammadu Buhari on Sunday in Abuja took hope to survivors of Friday night’s bomb attacks on Nyanya and Kuje in Abuja.
On a visit to the survivors of the attack who are receiving treatment at the Trauma Centre of the National Hospital, Buhari wished them full and speedy recovery.
A statement by the Special Adviser to the President on Media and Publicity, Mr Femi Adesina said Buhari reassured the survivors that the Federal Government would take full responsibility for settling their medical bills.
The president also directed his Chief of Staff, Mallam Abba Kyari to settle the N268, 790.00 medical bill of a young girl in the Pediatric Ward of the hospital.
The girl’s mother, Deborah Stephen, had broken into tears on seeing President Buhari.
She told him that her daughter had been shot by armed robbers who raided their home and that the family could not afford the medical bills.
The president who was accompanied by his personal aides and Governor Ibikunle Amosun of Ogun State, visited the intensive care unit, the paediatric unit and general wards of the National Hospital.
