Super Eagles of Nigeria player John Ogu has paid a sum of $1000 as treatment fee for a Nigerian female basket ball player Deborah Onah who is down with Tuberculosis of the Spine.
The player made the pledge after Deborah’s Abuja based basketball academy, Titans Basket, took to their Twitter handle on Friday to announce that Deborah needed the sum of N350,000 to help with treatment of the disease at the National Hospital, Abuja.
The Titans Basket tweeted
”One of our players, DEBORAH ONAH is down with Tuberculosis of the Spine. We solicit financial support as she undergoes treatment, at National Hospital Abuja. The goal is 350,000 Naira for cardiovascular surgery. No amount is too small.”
Coming across the tweet, Ogu replied saying he would make the full payment into the account number provided under the tweet.
He has since been getting accolades from Nigerians on Twitter.
