Popularly called ‘chairman’,Chukwu told reporters who accompanied Nwobodo on the visit to him that Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi has ensured he gets the necessary treatment that would enable him bounce back on his feet.
“There was never a time the state government abandoned me. When the governor heard about my sickness and how I was rushed to this place, he sent his Commissioner for Sports, who came here and since then, the government has picked my bills,” he said.
