Thirty five –year -old Ndujokwu Christian Ndubuisi is currently battling to save his sight. A native of Abriba in Abia State has been diagnosed with Glycoma, an eye condition commonly described among medical experts as ‘The Silent Thief of Sight’.
Ndubuisi who has been battling with the eye problem for 18 years would have had his surgery done some years back if the doctors were not on strike at that time. Unfortunately, the mother who was carrying him about got ill and died.
Today, Ndubusi is seeking for support to make his life easier for him and possibly regain his sight.
Narrating his heart rendering story to Vanguard, Ndubusi said his ordeal started while in 1998 while he was preparing to sit for his junior WAEC, at Ajeromi High School, Lagos.
Explaining how it all started, he said: “I woke up one morning and found that my sight was gone. I was taken to a general hospital where I was diagnosed of glycoma and was told that I would undergo a surgical operation.
Currently, Ndubuisi is taking refuge in his church ever since the mother died and the family torn apart. The church, ‘End Time World Apostolic Ministry’ located at 83, Olowa street, Olodi, Apapa area of Lagos state has been of great help and support to him.
He appealed to Nigerians and the Lagos State governor, Ambode Akinwunmi and his counterpart, Abia State Governor, Mr. Okezie Ikpeazu, to please help him regain his sight, describing his situation as the worst sickness on earth. “Please help me. I pray that none of you will see this kind of sickness.”
