First Cardiology Center that’s situated in Ikoyi is one of the best hospitals in the country where mostly the wealthy, influential and powerful people go to for medical care.
A cardiology center is a place where the disorders of the heart as well as some parts of the circulating system are treated, they also deals with the treatment of coronary artery disease, heart failure, valvular heart disease, congenital heart disease etc.
For the past few months, the hospital has recorded major casualties that arose out of coronavirus complications. Political bigwigs like the ex Oyo State Governor Senator Abiola Ajimobi, Senator Osinowo and recently Senator Buruji Kashamu all breathe their last there.
However, First Cardiology Center is no more a news to many people due to the weird publicity the death of some dignitaries in the country gave it. For those who don’t know the person that owns this popular medical centre.
