Femi Otedola, billionaire businessman, has assured that money will be no impediment in the way of providing Christian Chukwu, former captain of the Super Eagles, with adequate medical and post-medical care.
The business tycoon and chairman of Forte Oil, was speaking when he paid Chukwu a visit at the Wellington hospital, Circus road, St. John’s woods in London.
TheCable had broken the news of Otedola’s offer to foot the bill of the former captain of the national team, following reports that he was battling with prostate cancer, and how the $50,000 cheque was presented to him.

“Please continue to do your best. I want to say here and now, and for the avoidance of doubt, that money will not be an impediment to his treatment.”
Also present during the visit were Amaju Melvin Pinnick, president of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), and Lilian Nkeiruka, Chukwu’s wife.
