The former senate president, Dr Abubakar Bukola Saraki, through his foundation, the Abubakar Bukola Saraki Foundation, has come to the aid of the ailing ace comic actor, John Okafor, popularly known as Mr Ibu, by defraying the cost of all his medical bills so far.
The actor had cried out publicly for assistance to pay his mounting medical bills and to continue his treatment for an undisclosed ailment, saying that any delay may lead to the amputation of his leg.
But using its official X handle, the Abubakar Saraki Foundation has disclosed that it had cleared the actor’s medical bills as at Wednesday.
“When we learned of his recent health challenges and the financial burdens associated with his medical treatment, we felt a deep sense of responsibility to assist in any way we could. We promptly paid off his entire medical expenses as of Wednesday.
“We encourage everyone who can to come forward and assist in any capacity, whether it’s through financial contributions, moral support, or prayers.
“We wish him a swift and complete recovery,” the post read.
