Sonia, the daughter of former Deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu, needs free kidney donations from Nigerians, according to Ossai Success, an assistant to Delta State Governor Ifeanyi Okowa.
Success remarked that because of the importance Ekweremadu played in establishing the nation, people should not be hesitant to volunteer to donate their kidneys to Sonia.
After receiving a rare kidney illness diagnosis, Sonia had pleaded with members of the public on Monday to donate a kidney to her.
The 25-year-old said she had to leave the institution because of her illness. Her parents are currently being investigated for organ harvesting in the United Kingdom.
She contended that because her condition was genetic, none of her family members could contribute to her, and that England law prohibited payment for donations.
Ossai responded to the request on his Facebook page late on Monday, writing, “Ekweremadu’s daughter deserves free kidney donations, Prayers from Nigerians for her father’s role in shaping Nigeria.
“The former Deputy Senate President, Ike Ekweremadu, has done well for Nigerians and as such, his daughter deserves free kidney donations from Nigerians.
“Those mocking her are playing with God and nature.
“If you can’t give her your kidney, then pray for her instead of laughing at her family.
“Her father has paid his due as a patriotic Nigerians who as a Politician served Nigerians selflessly.
“This is the time for us Nigerians to pay her back by donating kidney to save his daughter Sonia life . Please, let’s save her.”
