The Coalition for A Better Nigeria has called on well meaning Nigerians to help save the life of ailing Nollywood actor Ojo Arowosafe aka Fadeyi Oloro.
Its national coordinator Bamiji Awa made the call in a statement on Tuesday in Lagos.
“Our dear super Nollywood actor, Chief Ojo Arowosafe, popularly known as Fadeyi Oloro is in dire need of the generous support of kind-hearted Nigerians concerning his failing health,” said the statement. “We brought this into public knowledge after years of his health crisis which is certainly beyond the control of his immediate family.”
Mr Awa, the president-general of Grand Council of Yoruba Youths, disclosed that the ailing actor needed assistance from individuals and corporate organisations.
“Veteran Yoruba actor Fadeyi Oloro has cried out to Nigerians, seeking financial assistance amidst health challenges,“ he said.
According to Mr Awa, Fadeyi Oloro had sold all his property while moving from one hospital to another in search of a cure.
Meanwhile, speaking about 2022, the youth leader urged the federal government to redouble efforts toward improving security.
Commending the government, he said more should be done to stamp out killings.
He called for a slash in the cost of governance through the adoption of parliamentary or regional system of government. This, he said, would save the country’s economy.
Mr Awa congratulated the Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi, Ojaja II, on his sixth year coronation anniversary.
He noted that the anniversary coincided with the inauguration of the Royal African Foundation targeted at addressing a wide range of issues affecting youths..
