He had earlier, in his last message to Team Lead of Platforms Africa, Adeola Yusuf, expressed optimism that he would get out of the sickness alive.
“APPRECIATION: Happy new month and sincere gratitude for contributing to my Medical support for treatment of PULMONARY EMBOLISM ( Blood clots) at Babcock Teaching Hospital,Ilisan. To the glory of God, I am alive even though I am still on admission after the fourth surgery.
“As you sacrificed your resources to keep me alive, may divine power of God keep you alive to do greatest exploit that will make you and your family never to beg. The Bible says in “Psalm 3vs 8 That salvation belongs to the Lord and his blessing is upon his people” God will save your soul from attacks by evil people and bless you abundantly. You will not become an object of mockery.You will live Long. Thanks and God bless you greatly. Dr Samuel Ibiyemi Publisher Nigerian NewsDirect ( Daily newspaper).”
