Veteran NTA Broadcaster and Actor, Sadiq Daba, sick and in need of Nigerians’ support
On Tuesday, 14th November, 2017, Dr Joe Odumakin (Josephine Obiajulu Okei-Odumakin) visited Sadiq Daba in Lagos when she learned her friend was in a debilitating state.
Dr Odumakin took to Instagram to lament the unfair treatment of the Veteran presenter, by Nigerians, who was battling prostate issues and leukaemia.
In 2015 Sadiq Daba was diagnosed with Leukaemia after visiting the hospital for what he thought was a regular fever. From then on, he’s been in and out of the Obafemi Awolowo and Lagos University Teaching Hospitals.
Almost after her first post, Dr Odumakin used the same medium to appreciate Nigerians for supporting the cause to get better treatment for Mr Daba. She gave an update of his account balance and it sure is mind-boggling.
Sadiq Daba Update :
We thank God that Nigerians have greatly influenced the possibility of getting quality treatment for our dear Icon, Sadiq Daba. Only four days the account was reading N350k, then on Friday if rose to N1.5m and N10.5m as at 10am today and it is growing. We pray it continues like this so that we can conclude in a matter of days.
Dr. Joe Okei Odumakin and Mr. Soni Irabor.
In a week Mr Daba has received at least 10 million Naira which is half of what he needs for his treatment.
In her note she mentions Mr Soni Irabor who has been by Mr Daba’s side right from the start and who is overseeing the finances.
