Thanking the AGN president, Osita said: “This woman is a man of honor. I only met her once when she invited all veterans to come and meet with her. She told us about the health plan she was working on, paid our transport to and fro the venue and even gave us extra money. When I became sick in January, my family did all they could but it was nothing close to what was needed. When I got to a point that I felt I had nobody and thought I would die I decided to just call madam president. I called her not up to three weeks ago. She has taken charge of everything, picked up all the bills even the one we paid before, she refunded us. Won’t God bless her?”
It would be recalled that numerous people have benefited from the AGN’s benevolence fund. Chike Bryan, President of the Screen Writers Guild of Nigeria who has been down with kidney failure, Mr. Romanus Amuta popularly known as Natty who had a stroke, are amongst those that have recently benefited from the fund.
