Former Nigerian Senate President Bukola Saraki Covers All Medical Expenses for Nollywood Star Mr. Ibu

In a heartwarming gesture of support, the Abubakar Bukola Saraki Foundation has covered all the medical expenses of the beloved Nollywood actor, John Okafor, famously known as Mr. Ibu. The foundation announced this generous act via their Facebook page on a recent Friday.

A statement from the foundation expressed their honor in assisting Mr. Ibu, a legendary comedic figure who has graced screens and brought joy and laughter to countless households over four decades. Mr. Ibu had been facing health challenges and financial burdens related to his medical treatment, prompting the foundation to step in. They promptly cleared all his medical bills as of the preceding Wednesday.

The foundation encouraged others to contribute in any way they could, be it through financial donations, moral support, or prayers, and extended their well wishes for Mr. Ibu's speedy and complete recovery.

This compassionate action followed a viral video shared on Mr. Ibu's official Instagram account, in which he sought help and prayers from his fans. He revealed that he had been hospitalized for several weeks, and doctors had warned him that they might need to amputate his leg if their next course of action did not succeed.

In the emotional video, Mr. Ibu implored for prayers and assistance, expressing his fear of losing his leg if amputation became necessary. He also asked for support from well-wishers. His daughter, Jasmine Okafor, appeared in the video and appealed to individuals and organizations to arrange for his transfer abroad, as he was not showing signs of improvement at the "one of the best private facilities in Lagos" where he was receiving treatment.

The Abubakar Bukola Saraki Foundation's intervention serves as a heartening example of community support and solidarity during challenging times, demonstrating the power of collective care and empathy for those in need.
