PHOTOS: Nigerian Doctors Separate Conjoined Twins In Abuja; paid for by Speaker Dogara

Another commendable feat. A team of Nigerian doctors has successfully separated a set of conjoined twins at the University of Abuja Teaching Hospital in Gwagwalada.

The doctors, led by Dr Nuhu Kwajafa of the Global Peace Initiatives, confirmed the success of the operation which took them several hours.

In a post on social media on Tuesday, he wrote; 
We wish to express our profound gratitude, as we say a massive thank you to Rt. Hon. Yakubu Dogara, for his kind hearted and extremely generous gesture to the successfully separated twins and their family…God bless you, Sir."

The spokesman to the Speaker of the House of Reps, Mr Hassan Turaki, told NAN on Wednesday that Speaker Dogara was moved by the plight of the parents to settle the medical bill.
