May 2nd, 2014 – Nollywood Star Chike Bryan’s Kidney Problem Worsens As Fashola Ignores Plea For Help

Over 2 month after the President of the Script Writers Guild of Nigeria, Chike Bryan, was diagnosed with a kidney ailment at the General Hospital in Isolo, Lagos, he is still in dire need of a transplant.

Investigation shows that in spite of attempts by Bryan’s friends and colleagues at the SWGN to raise money to fund the treatment of his ailment, preferably in India, not much progress has been made.

In an interview with our correspondent, the secretary of the SWGN, Stanley Okoronkwo said the Guild had made several efforts to raise funds for their ailing president, but in vain.

He said, “After we wrote to Governor Babatunde Fashola of Lagos State and requested financial assistance from him, Chike was referred to the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital for assessment of his case. He was assessed and diagnosed with a kidney ailment.

“Before then, he was given a wrong diagnosis in some local hospitals and this made it difficult for us to initially detect the cause of his illness. But we have not received a positive response from the state government, with regard to funding. The bills for the tests and medical assessment he has undergone at LASUTH were paid by us.”

Okoronkwo added that Bryan’s condition grew worse in 2013 and ever since, he has been receiving a weekly dialysis at the Isolo hospital. Meanwhile, the SWGN has set up a committee to raise the sum of N10m for his treatment abroad.

“We appeal to government and well-meaning Nigerians to help save the life of Chike Bryan,” Okoronkwo said.

  1. WHY Always Govt.fASHOLA for help when ever any Hollywood have Health problem,afterall where is own state Gov,by reading is name he is not from Lagos state and not from any w.s,so kindly cry for ur state Gov and any from the east,afterall Fashola have help many in hollywood with health problem,God will save you and run and cry to ur state Gov or state people for help.

  2. May God help him o. We dont want to hear bad news again in nollywood,so God will help you you will find favour

  3. I pity the unhealthy condition of Chike Bryan and I pray a good samaritan steps forward sooner than later and quickly before it gets too late, however its mind buggling how Lagos State Governor Fashola will be put on the spot as to make him feel deliberately refusing to respond to an SOS call. How many of such appeals have been made to the Governor of Chike’s state of origin. When **** destitudes were repatriated to their various Eastern states; many were those that sort to encourage Lagos State to be charged for illegality that runs into billions of Naira as compensations to those affected. Why wouldn’t those making the appeal to Fashola now see the reasons to call on the same Governors from the East who were once encouraged to institute legal action to also be responsible and responsive to one of their own in distress. Unfortunately, much as I pity Chike’s condition, people must remember that what goes around comes around. Quite pathetic indeed.

  4. Some Nigerian celebrities and politician spend millions of naira in organizing marriages in Dubai while they turn their backs on their fellow country men who need financial aid to receive proper medical care to stay alive. What a shame.
