Lifeline for ailing Prince Uche as Abia gov shows up



Lifeline for ailing Prince Uche as Abia gov shows up

There seems to be light at the end of the dark tunnel for ailing Nollywood actor Prince James Uche who got a lifeline from the governor of Abia State Dr Okezie Ikpeazu.

Ikpeazu donated the sum of N3 million and also approved N10 million as Abia State’s contribution for his treatment abroad.

Moments after the #SavePrinceJamesUche team led by Rita Edochie, Chioma Okoye and more visited the governor, one of the team members revealed the kind gesture of the governor towards saving the life of the actor who days ago was kicked out of hospital and later re-admitted over unpaid bills.

Actress Chioma Okoye thanked the governor, his wife and well-meaning Nigerians for their support towards the cause of Prince James Uche while also noting that the required amount for the actor’s treatment is almost complete.

“We the campaign team (#saveprincejamesucheteam ) just want to take a moment to thank his excellency the governor of Abia State, Dr Okezie Ikpeazu for his support to Prince James Uche.

“We had a crucial meeting with his excellency on Sunday 8th of January between the hours of 11pm-2am at the government house, Umuahia-Abia state and a sum of #3million (three million) physical cash was dropped on Monday 9th January at 1:29PM as his personal contribution to continue Prince James Uche’s treatment via the chief press secretary of Abia State–Mr Enyinnaya Appollos…his excellency also approved the sum of #10million (ten million) as Abia State government donation.

“The needed amount is almost complete as we have paid some to the hospital and now started plans to get him a home(he’s been living in the hospital) and fly him abroad with his son, best friend and kidney donor…we still need your support,” Chioma Okoye posted on social media.
