When he was asked whether the hospital has the capacity to do a successful surgery, he said: “according to the doctor, they have the capacity to do it.”

And concluded by asking Sanni Emmanuel to choose any of the countries and that he is not going to allow any doctor to use his leg to perform an experiment.
