Within 24 hours, Ghanaians donated generously to his cause to have his second tumour removed.

She said the neurological unit lacked certain equipment that was really essential to the unit and its absence was a contributing factor to the death of her son.

While narrating the heart-wrenching story on Accra-based Citi FM and how badly the unit was in dire need of some equipment, Cordelia said she is convinced the neurosurgical unit at Korle Bu is not a priority to any government.

Narrating her son's ordeal on tears and pain, she said all her son needed was a defibrillator to resuscitate his heart, but there was none in the unit.

She added that the only one the unit had was also under lock and key with the holder of the key nowhere to be found.
