The first baby to be delivered in Lagos State, Nigeria, this year Miss Oluwajomloju Ogundimu has undergone successful heart surgery in India. She was born 12:01 am on 1 January, 2015 but her mother, a first class accountancy graduate from the University of Lagos passed on after giving birth before the baby was diagnosed of heart related problem.
She was flown to India on 9 July, 2015 for medical attention with the help of the Lagos State Governor, Mr. Akinwunmi Ambode and the operation was successful. Little Ogundimu and her grandmother, Mrs. Ogunnoiki Folake were at Alausa yesterday to thank Ambode for his kind gestures.
Folake thanked the governor and prayed God to grant him mercy and wisdom to take Lagos State to desired destination.
“I dropped my request for assistant to Governor Ambode on Monday June 1, 2015 and he gave approval to my request by Wednesday June 3rd, 2015. God used him for me and for this I am very grateful, so I have come here to thank him,” she said.
She also appealed to the governor to also assist the baby to travel back to India for the next appointment, as God would reward him dearly for rendering help to her granddaughter.
