Social Activist, Journalist, Pharmacist and PR specialist Kemi Omololu-Olunloyo's youngest brother Oyeleke Akinyele Olunloyo became brain dead on Dec 21st 1999 after being struck by a speeding drunk driver in Birmingham, UK. Kemi stated "Being brain dead is not something meant to be a joke. To my knowledge Mrs Jonathan does not have children of her own but adopted ones, but to my mother who is also a former first lady in Oyo state, First Ladies are supposed to be the mothers of the people. In my mother's case the state and Patience Jonathan the NATION."
Speaking yesterday during the PDP women presidential campaign rally in Kogi State, she described Buhari as unfit to be the country’s president.
“Wetin him dey find again? Him dey drag with him pikin mate.”
“Old man wey no get brain, him brain don die pata pata,” she said in Pidgin English.
Brain death is the complete and irreversible loss of brain function. Various parts of the brain may keep living when others die. "My brother's brain stem was damaged like an egg which rolled off a table. As a US trained Pharmacist and Health and wellness professional, I encourage Nigerians to cease and desist from medical jokes and abuses calling people drug addicts, retarded, brain dead and more. There are people who actually suffer these conditions."
Kemi continued "I am asking that Mrs Jonathan should go on the same NTA news network and apologize to the nation, most especially we the families of people that have suffered irreversible brain damage."
Oyeleke Akinyele Olunloyo who died of brain damage was removed from life support on December 23rd 1999. He was 17. Tomorrow March 5th 2015, he would have been 33-years-old.
