The political economist who revealed his health status on his Twitter handle on Friday said that a biopsy he conducted in 2022 showed he was positive, hence, he started treatment with a cancer centre in Ikeja, the Lagos State capital and on the Victoria Island (VI).

Former presidential aspirant on the platform of the Labour Party (LP), Prof. Pat Utomi, has revealed that he shuttled between cancer centres in Lagos State and election campaigns for the 2023 general elections.

The political economist who revealed his health status on his Twitter handle on Friday said that a biopsy he conducted in 2022 showed he was positive, hence, he started treatment with a cancer centre in Ikeja, the Lagos State capital and on the Victoria Island (VI).

Utomi revealed that sometimes doctors would try to smuggle him out from the back of the centres to attend election campaigns.

He said, “When a biopsy showed I was positive last year I began treatment with a cancer Centre with a branch in Ikeja and VI. 

“I sometimes came from election campaigns to the Ikeja Centre near the Airport. The Doctors would try to smuggle me out from the back. The well known shielded?

“Once elections were over my young nephews and cousins, Doctors in Europe and the US, joined forces with the Lakeshore people and decided they wanted me in their direct care. That’s how come it seemed I went quiet cause they controlled my phones to reduce stress. 

“Did not see why it was taboo to say you were in a battle with Cancer. The more I talked about it the more I found many of my age in similar circumstances. It almost seems like an epidemic for Nigerian men over 60. Not talking makes them lose the benefit of early detection.”
