The newly appointed Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Boss Mustapha, has visited the ailing Second Republic Vice President, Alex Ekwueme, at a London hospital.

A tweet on the official Twitter handle of the Presidency shows Mr. Mustapha seated at the hospital with Ekwueme’s wife, Mrs. Helen.

The tweet read, “Secretary to the Government of the Federation (SGF), Boss Mustapha visited former Vice-President, Dr Alex Ekwueme in hospital in London, and conveyed President @MBuhari’s goodwill message. SGF pictured here with Mrs Helen Ekwueme”

The SGF’s visit comes after Ekwueme’s family members reportedly disclosed that the Federal Government reneged on its promise to foot the former Vice President’s overseas medical treatment.

Presidential spokesperson, Garba Shehu, had previously said that the medical treatment approved by President Buhari for Ekwueme “covers the immediate charter of an air ambulance for the emergency movement and the cost of treatment.”
