Rivers State Governor Rotimi Amaechi has pledged to donate $100,000 to OJB. He informed the parties concerned yesterday and will be making the donation tomorrow. Finally the music producer can now undergo his kidney transplant. We thank God. Here is what Nomoreloss who heads the 'saveojb' campaign committee said below. Today also happens to be OJB's birthday.
Officials of the government reached out to us this evening, (Wednesday, June 3) promising to donate a $100,000. The presentation, they say, will be made on Friday (June 5). We are indeed grateful to the Governor and the people of Rivers State. Now we can finally have that surgical procedure.
We also appreciate the kind hearts of Nigerians who have made donations and those that supported us with prayers. May God bless them all’.
We had a place in mind initially, but recently, there’s been several suggestions from some quarters on better options. We would be having a meeting by the weekend with all concerned parties to decide which of the options is best.
The musician also says the identity of the kidney donor will not be revealed.
‘The donor is a family member, but for some reason, we do not wish to disclose the identity. All that matters is for him to have a successful operation’.
Insiders say that the producer who is currently at the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital (LASUTH) undergoing dialysis hopes to have a low-key celebration with a few family and friends if discharged today.
