According to Chief Medical Director of the hospital, Auwal Abubakar, while speaking at a news conference in Yola, the operation which took four hours to perform was conducted on May 14.

Abubakar added that the twins have an “excellent” chance of survival.

He also called for more efforts to reduce the rate of medical tourism in the country, adding that Nigerian doctors are capable of competing with their counterparts in developed countries if given the necessary support.

“We must do well and reduce the number of people about to ask seeking medical treatment,” he said.
