Atiku Donates N1.5M To Journalist With Kidney Problem by Maxymilliano(m): 10:35pm On Mar 04, 2013
Former Vice President Atiku Abubakar has given succour of $10, 000 (about N1.5million)to Mr. Anslem Odo, a journalist with the Voice of Nigeria, VON, who is suffering from kidney failure and needs about N7million for surgery.

Atiku, who made the donation through the Head of his Media Office, Mallam Garba Shehu, said he was moved by the plight of Odo based on the appeal by the Nigeria Union of Journalists, FCT Council.

This was contained in a press statement signed by the Secretary of the Nigerian Union of Journalists, FCT Council, Mr. Emmanuel Ogbeche.

According to Shehu, the former Vice president as a friend of the media and owner is concerned about issues that affect journalists in the country and would always support matters that concern them.

He used the opportunity to condole with the NUJ FCT Council and the entire media family over the death of Mr. John-Abba Ogbodo of The Guardian Newspapers.

Atiku described the late Ogbodo as a thorough professional who was not only humble but committed and full of integrity.

Speaking at the presentation, Comrade Chuks Ehirim, chairman of NUJ FCT Council, commended the former Vice President for the gesture and said the Council was not surprised given his love for humanity.

Ehirim enjoined other Nigerians to emulate Atiku and help in saving the life of Odo.

On her part, the chairperson of NUJ VON chapel and Odo Fund Raising Committee, Mrs. Rafat Salami, described the donation as timely and a major boost to the campaign to save Odo.

If Atiku donates more than 7 million, una go complain say na campaigning, 1.5 million una go still complain say 'why didn't he donate all the 7 million naira needed' if he donate 150k una go complain say d man too stingy.

People can never be pleased better to do the right things that feel right to you and let others whine about it.

Publicity stunt or not the journalist has seen part of the money needed and all of you complaining should either donate to the man's cause or shut up!
