The University of Port Harcourt Teaching Hospital has faulted reports that musician, Burna Boy, covered all medical bills for patients during a recent visit to the hospital.

The hospital clarified that the music star only settled the bills of selected patients at the facility, contrary to claims of covering all outstanding bills.

This is coming after several blogs and news sites reported earlier this week that Burna Boy paid the hospital bills for all the patients at the hospital.

 

The institution’s spokesperson, Elabha Meni, made the clarification in a statement released in Port Harcourt on Friday.

“We commend Burna Boy’s kindness in financially assisting select patients in our hospital to offset their bills during his visit on June 11.

“However, contrary to reports stating that all patients’ bills in UPTH were paid during the visit, only selected patients received cash gifts or donations.

 

“The hospital did not receive direct payments from the musician and his team on behalf of patients to support this worthy course of reducing healthcare costs,” Meni clarified.

Meni lauded the musician’s charitable act in helping those in need in society.
