      Mr nomoreloss, thanks for the information but it is not enough. It will be very fraudulent to just say thank God and leave it at that without giving a record of how much was actually raised for this transplant. All we have been hearing is the 8million donated by about 5persons, what about the widows mites of hundreds or possible thousands if Nigerians that were touched to give. Nobody is going to ask for a refund but it is morally binding that you people say this is what was raised in total and this is not just the millions donated by known names but also the N500, N1,000, N10,000 etc donations of people like me, so that people will appreciate that their little contributions helped. If you don’t do this, you would have failed yourselves. And the next person that would appeal for help from the public.

      my riend, shut up joor! What business of yours is with the account of how much was raised for OJB?? You think you can just come here and be.speaking grammar. Even if the money raised sums up beyond the target, how is that a c crime? Obviously, you have never given to charity before. #smh abeg OJB and Team OJB, kudos to you guys. You will live long in Jesus Name. Amen!

      I agree with u. Accountability is key. This is done in other parts of the world. Say how much u collected and how u spent it. And give credit to those who gave a little or a lot

      It is called transparency and accountability. The lot of you are the ones that will come up tomorrow and start screaming about how corrupt Nigeria is. The solution starts from little things like this. The bible says if you are not faithful over little, you can’t be faithful over much.

    I’m extremely happy for OJB. I wish him all the best and pray he recovers soon…

    Now may I ask the source of the $100,000 Amaechi has approved? Is it from his own pocket or is it from State Funds? I’m sure I’m not the only one wondering this…This was not clarified in the Tweet…Though we already know that the line between State funds and personal pocket is extremely blurred for these pple…

      O really? No one shd ask about where the money came from bc they are saving someone. What if it came from money for public hospitals…like the same one my cousin died in one month ago..the same one that didn’t have the facilities to help her. We must ask these questions. There’s no reason why an accountable gov’t can’t say where money came from. It’s a very simple question. Did u steal from state funds to do a good deed so to speak or is it ur own money

    Thank God! I wish OJB a successful operation and speedy recovery. Happy Birthday to him. And God bless Gov. Amaechi. Even if the fund is from public coffers, I think his gesture is better than that of Gov. Akpabio who gave a jeep as a wedding gift and also sponsored people to the celebrity wedding from the public funds.

    July 4, 2013 at 8:27 am

    So are they returning money previously donated by P-square and the rest since Amaechi donated all the money needed for the procedure. Just thinking out loud.

    • amaaa

      July 4, 2013 at 10:13 am

      Miss bee please do your research well OJB operations is just one step .After the surgery his going to be on medication for the rest of his life and I am talking about medications that run into millions of Naira annually this will help his body not reject the new pairs of kidney. If he asks the general public to donate towards this after the surgery do you think people will listen to him

    • Mabel

      July 4, 2013 at 5:00 pm

      They are asking because there are tens and thousands of Nigerians in the exact same position, next door to death without the means to finance health care. If the money is coming from the public coffers it means one life is being prioritized over others.

      If OJB’s fundraising team team is decent they would donate the total amount of money that was raised to other patients waiting on a transplant, or those suffering from other life threatening illnesses, so that they may get a chance to live too. That would be the just thing to do since he got the total 100k from one source!

    The comments I have been reading shows how myopic (in every sense) some commenters can be. We are talking of saving a life and u are talking about the source of the donation. Do u guys have value for life @ all?? I can’t, I just can’t imagine the things people conceive in their heads. Would you rather be happy if you heard that the money was the issue of a probe? say misappropriation of Govt. funds.

    Pls lets learn to display empathy @ all times. It can happen to anybody.I have lost 2 of my uncles to renal failure, & in their prime. I don’t want that 4 OJB or anyone else 4 that matter. So pls stop yarning dust and be thankful to the donor.

    P.S Anonymous 8:16am, I get you perfectly. Just know that God who sees all things will reward u accordingly.

    Still basking in the euphoria of joy when I heard this news.its quite a weak point for me when pple exhume their benevolence, though I am not a governor neighter I am I a pinch rich as he is but the act of giving is most considered aT this point, Dear governor Ameachi, I put it to you that you have saved a life by all financial estrogens and we pray the health of the sick , will ever remain in ur abode.thanks so much and may the good lord continue to strenghten OJB many more years ahead of you, as we keep Searching for the joyous health ahead you will keep soaring high

    They should use the money to transform the facilities on ground so many others suffering from similar conditions can benefit. If the donation was not from Amechi’s personal account, then it goes agasint the purpose.

      Its amazing how ppl think its ok to donate state funds that can be used to upgrade hospitals and health care system in the state that will benefit thousands.
      I’m glad OJB has been given a chance but what about the “un-celebrities” that die of this same ailment unnoticed. Let’s be reasonable pls

    July 5, 2013 at 8:33 am

    @ Tutu and the others who think its ok to use state/govt money for OJB’s surgery,i want to sincerely believe that you did not stop to think deeply before typing your response. Now let me rephrase for you,in case you didnt get it . We are happy OJB got the funds needed from Governor Amaechi for his surgery. Thats not the issue.The question we are asking is,these funds donated,is it his personal money or does it belong to Rivers state? If it belongs to the coffers of Rivers state,then that is tantamount to stealing!!! Stealing state money to fund charitable causes doesnt make stealing public funds justifiable. As pointed out earlier by a previous poster,OJB’s life is not more important than that of babies born to impoverished parents in the hinterland of Okirika,Ogoni,Ndoni all communities in River state etc. As we speak,there are hundreds (if not more) of persons across hospitals in Nigeria who are ill with various kidney diseases and need transplant. If the govt built hospitals that have decent facilities to treat kidney diseases and carry out transplants when needed,would OJB and others seek medical treatment outside Nigeria? So you see our point? That stealing public money to engage in personal interests ,no matter how well-meaning does not benefit the general populace in the long run. Thats why we are where we are as a Nation. What will benefit you and I in the long run is well equipped hospitals that can treat us when the need arises.
    Wowo! This is really sad! We truly have a long way to go,if there are persons who genuinely think it doesnt matter what public officials do with every kobo belonging to the state.

    @TA .thanx for speaking my mind exactly. @Alero u’re d most myopic person that has ever commented on BN. Sorry 4 others joining in ur ignorance. We have qualified medical personel i Nigeria but they don’t have the facilities 2 work. Do u know how frustrating it can be. I wish OJB well but I tell u if not he’s a celebrity dt generousity will not be cos plenty people r on the waiting list 4 urgent kidney transplant but no help. If u’re a teacher u dont have chalk or board or tailor,no scissors, sewing machine etc how do u feel? Its time 2 equip our Nigerian Doctors & save cost of oversea treatment.

And as for my governor, I know he is a good man, what if the money didi not come from his pocket, aren’t u as a rivers persn haPpy that ur money has save a life. As for the person dat is saying there are many people out there that needs help, if you or them need help you shld be able to come out as OJB did so people could help you. HAPPY BBIRTHDAY OJB! Is so sad u did your birthday on bed, I wish you quick recovery, the same spirit that raise Jesus from the death shall quicken your mortal body, he said by his stripes you are healed in Jesus name.

    I thought we have been praying asking for help now God Almighty in his infinit mercy has answered us by providing OJB’s destiny helpers more than he even ask, & today matters are arising. Thesame Savour never sleep nor sulmber. I personally believe that he the Lord will still make away where there is no way for all the sick in the hospital all over the word by providing there helpers & someone who will build a benefical hospital of our heart desires in this great country Nigeria. Lets thank God for what He has done & stop complaining for he the Lord says worry not for i’m the Lord i changeth not!.

    HOnestly, accountability and responsibility are two words many Nigerians run away from. The right way to do it, is let people know how the money will be spent. Yes, we have to save him but at the same time, people have every right to know. And, if the govenor is paying fully for it, what happens to the rest of the money. Will he keep it or donate it to another person in need or what?

  39. Vaale

    July 5, 2013 at 9:37 pm

    Let the condition of OJB serve as a lesson for all our extravagant Nigerian celebrities, those who pop champagne of $3000, wear designers of $5000, inscribe tattoos of $2000, drive cars of $15000 and the rest of them. They should equally learn how to be charitable to the less privileged and learn how to live modestly and save. Nigerians are good hear-ted people that is why we always give. If not the lifestyle of Nigerian entertainers can be really financially scandalous.

    I am very sure that those talking about accountability and returning money donated to charity did not donate a kobo. And as for asking how much was donated in all, if no one will tell you let me tell you it is none of business and for all of you who wish to enrich yourselves from someone’s misfortune the same faith you will also suffer. As for all those who donated money and prayers God will enrich you and answer you in your time of need. Amen

      Why is it do difficult for folks to comment on Nigerian blogs without resorting to dishing out curses? How does laying curses on persons who hold a contrary view improve your own life?
      What is the guarantee that those shying away from helping OJB are not helping some other vulnerable and needy person? Is OJB the yardstick for measuring human kindness?
      On a related note, OJB has to revisit this his three wives issue. How can a young man settle for such a lifestyle? Is that not enough to induce high blood pressure and kidney failure in this age and time? Coping with one wife is enough work.
      I wish him a speedy recovery.

    Why are Nigerian government officials using the people’s money as if they own it? Some state governors free donate hundreds of millions of dollars to churches in the case of Anambara State governor. Amaechi just donated $100,000 dollar in addition to the $45000000 private jet he purchased. All these expenditures are treated as if they come from their private accounts and Nigerians in their own ignorance would be singing their praises. This is ridiculous! Imagine Colorado State governor throwing money around in that fashion. He’d be in prison in a heartbeat. Did any of you praise singers know that know that number of Illinois former governors are serving various prison terms for offenses that are way less than what you guys are praising these bastards for? About ten years ago, a mayor in the US who hailed from Rivers State went to prison for accepting $5000 in bribe from contractors. You guys should wake up and think about how many jobs that could have been created with all these cash being wasted.
