Ephraim Terkula, NAFDAC worker, down with liver disease, needs N30m to survive
A 44-year-old middle-level worker of the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC), Mr. Ephraim Anjembe Terkula, who has been diagnosed with liver disease, needs N30 million to get medical treatment at a health facility in the United Kingdom (UK).
His wife, Mrs. Christiana Anjembe, who disclosed this to newsmen in Abuja, called on well-meaning Nigerians to come the rescue of her husband.
According to her, the health challenge started last year but they had been managing it privately. She lamented that she had to appeal for public support because that was the last option as the family cannot afford to raise N30 million for the treatment.
Mrs. Christiana added: “My husband has dedicated most of his life to the fight against drug counterfeiting at the agency over a period of 18 years. He is currently having a health challenge that is affecting his liver and also threating his life. The doctors who have been managing his health challenge have come to the conclusion that he has to be referred to the United Kingdom where another consultant has been arranged to start treatment for him.
“We wanted to manage our affairs privately but it is getting out of hand, hence, we decided to call on Nigerians, Good Samaritans, especially in the industry where my husband has contributed, to come to his rescue. I also appeal to the Director-General of NAFDAC to also come to his rescue.”
