Another Nollywood actor is the latest beneficiary of the Actors Guild of Nigeria‘s benevolence fund sponsored by President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan.

If you recall, recently Natty of 80’s sitcom New MasqueradeRomanus Amuta who suffers from partial paralysis, was treated at a hospital, given money and foodstuff – read it here.

AGN President Ibinabo Fiberesima and her team with the help of the fund, came to the aid of veteran actor Osita Okeke who was diagnosed with pancreas and prostrate-related diseases.

“This woman is a man of honor, I only met her once when she invited all veterans to come and meet with her. She told us about the health plan she was working on, paid our transport to and fro the venue and even gave us extra money. When I became sick in January, my family did all they could but it was nothing close to what was needed. When I got to a point that I felt I had nobody and thought I would die I decided to just call madam president. I called her not up to three weeks ago, my brother you say you are nollywood television look at the result, look at the result. She has taken charge of everything, paid up all the bills even the one we paid before she refunded us, won’t God bless her? If this is how presidents are then madam must be president for life ada di ora nma, God will protect you and bless you.” he said.

Ibinabo thanked President Jonathan for his contributions, and prayed for the actor.
