The Governor of Rivers State,Rotimi Amaechi has just approved the sum of $100,000 over N15.5m, the total money expected to get Music Producer OJB Jezreel the required medical treatment for his ailing Kidneys.
The move was made by Jazzman Olofin, who was said to have visited Mr. Femi Davies, a top journalist and online publisher to complain about the way the people around are treating the issue of the prolific producer/singer.
According to reports, Femi Davies intensified effort to liaise with another top journalist, Mr. Wale Olaleye, This Day Political Editor and he was said to have asked Mr. Davies to come forth with a formal letter of request to be forwarded to Governor Amaechi.
Contact was therefore made to the Governor through the Thisday political editor, Mr. Wale.It was gathered that as soon as the letter got to the embattled governor, he signed it and ordered the state to pay as soon as possible. Governor Amaechi surprised all and sundry as he made this whopping donation.
Gov Amaechi of Rivers State and people of the State, have finally restored the hope of the people who have rallied round to help the entertainer, OJB.
Though, there seem to be some rancor between the people in charge of the ‘Support OJB Team’ as some people are already deliberating on how to have their share of the money as soon as it arrives since Governor Amaechi has coughed out the whole money needed for the kidney transplant and there were previous donations close to N10m before now.
According to the information got, the money will get to the ailing entertainer before the close of work today or tomorrow.
We hope Amaechi's government would attend to this cause on time and speedily disburse the money before it’s too late like what happened in Edo State recently when a civil servant who needed just N150,000 had to lose his life because the money was not speedily disbursed as authorized by the governor.
