Foremost filmmaker Chief Eddie Ugbomah, OON is critically ill and needs urgent and sustained medical attention. I gathered that the medics at a private hospital in Ilogbo Eremi are no longer attending to the living legend who made 13 celluloid films including “Death of A Black President” and “The Rise and Fall of Oyenusi”, because of unpaid hospital bills. The picture of him i saw this morning drew tears from me and the situation as Ugbomah”s young child called to tell me this evening is distressing. He may be thrown out of the hospital any moment now. Honestly, the very agile Chief Ugbomah, in his seventies, is not one who will coil on a bed. He will either be writing stories, updating the huge collection of photographs he has in his self sponsored hall of fame or simply be in his farm. I appeal for help for the Delta High Chief and an Officer of the Order of the Niger (OON). I plead for donation to enable us get Chief Ugbomah out of hospital and back on his feet. Nothing is too small. And should anyone have direct contacts to His Excellency, the Delta state governor Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa, kindly bring this breaking information to His Excellency’s attention. Chief Ugbomah, a senior citizen of Nigeria and an illustrious son of Delta state needs help fast! Those who want to donate to get him up his feet can do so via;
