Former Super Eagles Captain and Coach Christian Chukwunaru has expressed his profound gratitude to Nigerian billionaire businessman, Femi Otedola for assisting him regain his health. In his words,
“Otedola has made me, I can play football again,” Chukwu said jokingly when he paid the oil mogul a visit in Lagos on Friday.
“If you saw me before I left for London, you won’t believe I’ll be here talking to you.
I think I won’t be making a mistake if I say after God, it’s Otedola in my life.
“I had many complications and I couldn’t walk.
When I heard Otedola brought out money for my treatment, I marvelled because in my circle, we didn’t know him before then.
We have people with us but maybe they forgot or it’s not in their character (to help).
“I don’t know how to thank Otedola enough, God bless him.” Chukwu’s wife, Lilian, who was with him alongside his daughter and sister throughout the duration of treatment in London, also thanked Otedola for coming to their aid. “God used him to bring my husband back to life. He (Otedola) will never lack,” Lilian stated.
