FG Clarifies Tourism Minister’s Health Status After Alleged Poisoning

The media story that Lola Ade-John, the tourism minister, had been poisoned and sent to the hospital has been refuted by the ministry of tourism

When Vanguard called the Ministry, Emem Mariam Ofiong, the Assistant Director of Press at the Ministry, refuted the accusation that the minister had been poisoned but verified that she had malaria, had been treated for it, and had since stabilized

It is untrue that the Minister was poisoned, she just had malaria, which was treated, and she is now stable, in the words of the speaker

“Lola Ade-John, 60, was rushed to the Federal Medical Center, Jabi, shortly after she began to exhibit symptoms of her poisoning,” it says in the statement. As of Friday morning, she had been there for four days, according to family members familiar with Ade-John’s situation, who spoke to Peoples Gazette

The article stated that Ade-John, a banker and tech investor, had been using a breathing machine and that it was impossible to instantly determine what substance she had consumed or how

According to the report, “Her worsening situation has further polarized the family against the government, with the permanent secretary of her ministry reportedly divided over whether she should remain in a public hospital for treatment or be transferred to a better-equipped private facility downtown

The minister’s family reportedly rejected Ngozi Onwudike’s argument that she shouldn’t be relocated because the FMC is a public hospital and its services wouldn’t incur significant costs to the government

But according to our sources, they stayed with her since they were unable to acquire enough money to transfer her to a private hospital. On Friday morning, the permanent secretary’s phone number was unreachable.”A FMC spokesperson did not respond right away to a request for comments regarding Ms. Ade-John’s condition
