See the committee’s report as reproduced below;


As members of Impact Group of Ikorodu Division (IGOID), we have chosen to rise in support for Miss Ganiyat Sanni, a 17- year old female student from Imota LCDA with two failed kidneys. She currently requires compulsory dialysis of 4 hours per day for each dialysis run, thrice a week.

Her nephrologists consultant has advised that TRANSPLANT is the only best recommended treatment for her, if she must live a healthy life. Ganiyat’s mother is willing and ready to donate one of her kidneys to this cause. At this stage Miss Ganiyat Sanni do not want to lose opportunity to live a healthy life. So please your Excellency come to her aid in this critical situation. Find attached medical reports for your perusal and due consideration. Find below our report for your immediate intervention.

The committee led by Mrs. Oluwafunke Awoyemi, after a brief phone conversation with the victim Ganiyat Sanni and her mother on Friday May 3rd 2019, we decided to visit her on Saturday May 4th 2019 at her Imota residence and the following are our findings: We engaged her Lead nephrologist Consultant, Dr. T. I. Umeizudike of LASUTH on Saturday May 4th 2019, who gave us a brief overview into her case. Miss Ganiyat Sanni has been on treatment for systematic lupus erythematic (SLE) since 2015. She has now been diagnosed with end stage Renal disease (ESRD) and in need of regular hemodialysis – thrice weekly Ganiyat Sanni needs urgent fund of 100,000 Naira for her weekly dialysis, already overdue. According to the lead consultant, there is an estimated budget cost of 8.5 million naira for the operation to be conducted here in Lagos Nigeria. Your Excellency, undergoing the operation at LASUTH will cost N8. 5 million Naira excluding contingencies.

Alternatively an approximate sum of $45000 is needed to cover the surgery, (flight, feeding and accommodation for 3 persons) in India. Sir, we resolved the latter is the best option considering the delicate position of her two kidneys. She had been undergoing regular dialysis thrice a week but it has now been reduced to once a week due to the huge cost involved. Miss Ganiyat is very hopeful she can live normally if she gets the required assistance from your Excellency Sir. We plead that you use your good office to make her smile and walk again! For further clarification please call Olufunke on 08093580537.

We look forward to your urgent response and intervention. Let’s #SaveSanniGaniyat. Yours faithfully, Signed For: Imapct Group of Ikorodu Division Mrs. Oluwafunke Awoyemi, Chairman Mr. Hassan Boluwatife, Secretary Mr. Ibrahim Alani Onibudo, Member Comrade Francis Mani Shonubi, Member Mr. Kunle Adelabu Jagun, CEO Imapct Newspaper
