Former Super Eagles Captain, Christian Chukwu has spoken for the first time on his health challenge.
Chairman as he is fondly is grateful to Nigerians for the love and support he has received in the last two weeks.
He also denied reports that he has been abandoned by the Enugu State Government
“I sincerely thank Nigerians for their concern on my health. By the grace of God I’ll be back on my feet. It, however, feels bad that people have created controversy over my health. It doesn’t feel good. I have not been abandoned. He said in an interview with Vanguard
The Enugu State Government has been helpful and I appreciate them. My friend, Benson Ejindu who lives in USA and who is patron of Ex Rangers players has been tremendous too. He directed that I be brought to this hospital where I am now.
He contacted them and moved me to this place. I did not tell anybody that I have been abandoned.
Ejindu did not also tell anybody that Enugu State Government has abandoned me. Nobody has said that. So, I don’t know where this controversy is coming from.”
Femi Otedola had promised to cover the bills for his treatment abroad in a bid to give back to a football legend.
