Dear Governor Aminu Waziri Tambuwal,
The Executive Governor of Sokoto State,
Office of the Executive Governor,
Government House, Sokoto,
Sokoto State, Nigeria.
His Excellency,


The National Leadership of University Graduates  of Nursing Science Association (UGONSA), the professional association of all nurses with a minimum qualification of first degree in nursing, and all the Nurses under its commune are bereft of words of appreciation for your timely and unquantifiable support and assistance to save the life of our dear sister, Nurse Maryam Abubakar – a staff nurse of the Sokoto State Ministry of Health, who was diagnosed of liver cancer (left lobe) and needed a minimum of 4 million naira to procure  live saving surgery in India. 

2. When the news broke out that chemotherapy only cannot resolve her problem and that she needed extensive surgery that would engulf the whooping sum of 4 million naira, it seemingly sounded like a death sentence.
          3. However, the almighty God has chosen to renew her life through your benevolence.
    4. Although our association and some kindhearted Nigerians did their best within their limited capacity, the singular intervention of the Sokoto State Government, under your able and altruistic leadership earnestly made a crucial difference. 

          5. Doling out the sum of 4 million naira by the Sokoto State Government to assist her at a time when all was bleak is an indelible gesture we shall forever remain grateful for. 

      6. This gesture has proven to us that the selfless work we nurses do in the care of humanity is highly appreciated. It also stands as a living motivator that shall propel us to do more. 

      7. Overtime, you have proven to be a friend of the nurses. A friend in need is truly a friend indeed. The entire family of nurses is highly indebted to you for your consistent show of concern for our affairs and welfare. 
8. Earnestly, our sense of gratitude is so overwhelmed with joy for what you did for our sister that we feel that ‘thank you’ is so inadequate to express the depth of our appreciation, but we will say it anyway! His Excellency, with humility and utmost joy we say THANK YOU! THANK YOU!! and THANK YOU!!!

Chief (Hon) S.E.O. EGWUENU                                                              Nurse G.I. Nshi
     National President                                                                                National Secretary
