There are unconfirmed reports that the camp of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Kogi State is allegedly confused over documents that surfaced online and reported by the Nation’s newspaper online and Daily independent, depicting the health status of its candidate, Engr Wada.
According to a report by Vanguard, Wada was alleged to be admitted at the Federal Neuro-Psychiatric Hospital, Yaba in 2005 for alleged delusions with distorted speech. The report stated that Engr. Wada was allegedly admitted for rehabilitation and medication with the patient number 001364.
The report has that in the build-up to the 2011 elections in Kogi state, documents emerged on the mental state of Capt. Idris Wada from the University College Hospital (UCH), Ibadan. The elder Wada’s mental state on admission was allegedly one of paranoid delusions and auditory hallucinations according to his medical record.
Till date, no medical record from the UCH has confirmed Idris Wada as a discharged patient of the Psychiatric unit. In a report published by The Nation newspaper, an affidavit deposed to by Uchechukwu Clement, a lawyer, stated that contrary to claims by Wada on oath under part B, Article E Question 1 “Idris Wada had at a point been adjudged to be of unsound mind”.
