I am Babatunde Okunade a native of Isaga Orile, under Abeokuta North Local Govt. Ogun State. A radio presenter and also a cricketer with national repute who represented Ogun State with a lot of laurels. I had a motor accident on 29th of August 2010, which involved my left arm. Since then the arm was not okay for me to use, I started feeling more pain early this year. I was given two options. 1). To either travel abroad for better surgery or 2). My left arm amputated.
According to him, his association wrote a letter before now to the State Government but got no reply. So he has decided to write a personal one to the Gov. (Gov. Amosun), hoping he will get a reply, but they are yet to reply him too. He won two Gold medals and one silver medal for Ogun State in National Sports Festival from 1998-2002 and many more awards. And he is only asking for #1,749,025.00 for a surgery abroad. I saw this on another news platform but decided to bring it here because I know someone will see it and inform him. I also spoke to Mr Babatunde this morning and he is yet to hear from his Excellency. He said he had a surgery in July in India, and they asked him to come back on the 26th of October for the second phrase which will make the surgery complete and let him live a normal life again. I trust my State Gov to act fast on this. Senator Amosun won’t ignore this. Please click to continue.
