Georgina Onuoha Mocks Ekweremadu Over Jail Sentence, Issue Warning To Doctors
Georgina Onuoha, a Nollywood actress, has mocked former Deputy Senate President Ike Ekweremadu and his wife following their imprisonment in the United Kingdom.
It was reported that the 60-year-old Nigerian senator, his wife, and a medical doctor, Obinna Obeta, were found guilty of conspiring to bring a Lagos market trader to the UK in order to harvest his kidney for the politician’s 25-year-old daughter, Sonia.
Beatrice Ekweremadu, 56, was sentenced to four years and six months in prison, while the doctor involved in the organ trafficking case was sentenced to ten years in prison and had his medical license suspended.
Georgina Onuoha responded in the comments section of an Instagram blog post, saying the senator and his wife were treated fairly.
The thespian frowned at how politicians disregard the country’s healthcare system and rush abroad to be treated by Nigerian medical doctors who treat them poorly at home.
She also claimed that Ekweremadu stole millions of Naira meant for the construction of a hospital in Enugu State.
The actress went on to warn Nigerian doctors and medical practitioners not to give up their licenses for anyone, let alone Nigerian politicians.
And let the choir say Amen. Serves them right. Do not take advantage of anyone because you are in a place of power. Dear Nigerian doctors, nurses and caregivers, do not sacrifice your licenses for anyone let alone Nigerian politicians who deliberately neglect our healthcare system back home but can rush overseas to be treated by the same Nigerian clinicians they treat poorly back home.
As for the ex-senator I hope they can extend his imprisonment. This same man was given millions if not billions to build hospitals back home in his state, he embezzled it. As for their daughter, I wish her well and good health.
If she was better advised I’m sure she would have made a different choice. If you speak up and ask for help, I’m sure someone somewhere would have helped her out. Best of luck young woman and I pray God send you help and healing.
