Oil magnate, Femi Otedola , Delta State politician, Ned Nwoko and other Nigerians have led the way with Million naira donation to former Eagles Captain, Christian Chukwu. Many Nigerians had trooped to a ‘Gofundme’ account opened for the national team icon to contribute to the cause. At the last count, the Gofundme account has yielded $4, 414.
Chukwu, who played in the team that led Nigeria to its first African Nations Cup triumph in 1980, has been down with an undisclosed ailment with projections showing he needs at least a $50,000 treatment to get back to his feet.
It is believed that the Ex-Super Eagles player will be flown abroad for treatment soon.
