Billionaire Forte Oil boss, Femi Otedola, has coughed out a whopping $50,000 to assist ailing Christian Chukwu, a former Super Eagles captain and coach with his surgery.
Popularly known as Chairman during his active days, many were left mouth-agape when news got out today that he had been knocked down by what is alleged to be prostate cancer. And to compound his woes, the $50,000 needed to fly him abroad for better treatment wasn’t available.
His pitiable photographs where he was being assisted to walk, looking pale and emaciated also left tears on most eyes, with forlorn looks here and there.
The Nigerian Football Federation, headed by Amaju Pinnick, had promised to assist him. Same with the government of Enugu State, under the leadership of Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, whom we learnt pledged N1.5 million.
However, no sooner was Chukwu’s woes brought to Otedola’s notice than he promised to foot the entire bill. Prayers and thank you messages have been pouring in for the son of one time Governor of Lagos State, Sir Michael Agbolade Otedola, ever since because of his generosity and kindness.
