IBB Has Abandoned Me; Jonathan Please Help Me Before I Die –Prof Omoruyi

"I have been used and dumped, especially by Babangida. Some politicians who don’t like me were also preventing the President from giving me assistance, after I sent a message about my health predicament to him."

“I am going back to hospital. President Goodluck Jonathan should help me. I cried to him through Chief Edwin Clark. There is vindictiveness in the land. I have paid my dues in this country and the country is unfair to me. What did I not do?”

Prof. Omo Omoruyi, was on Monday flown abroad following his deteriorating health. But in a parting shot, the man cried out to President Goodluck Jonathan to help him since Gen Ibrahim Babangida whom he served has turned his back on him.

It would be recall that Prof. Omoruyi was appointed Director General, Centre for Democratic Studies, by former military dictator, General Ibrahim Babangida.

Omoruyi was first diagnosed with cancer in 2007, but his condition improved after receiving treatment in the United States. Speaking in Benin City, Edo State, before travelling to the US, he appealed to President Goodluck Jonathan and other Nigerians to come to his aid.

“My cancer is back and I don’t know how it will end. Governor Adams Oshiomhole has graciously come to my aid again. He is the one making it possible for me to commence my second journey...

“IBB abandoned me. I let him know about the first journey. He did not help me, not even one kobo so I cannot go to him for this second journey. In the first journey I did not hear from him. "
