Following the cry for help by James Uche’s family, Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN) president, Emeka Ike has revealed that people refused to help the ailing actor because he is not a fine girl.
It is sad that someone like Prince James is begging for help but what is sadder is the fact that one Nigerian can actually pay all his medical bills. But because the sickness does not involve a fine girl, everybody is minding their business.
I bet you that if it was a fine girl that was in his shoes, a lot of Nigerian men would have signified interest in helping but because the matter at hand involves an old man, everyone seems to be turning a deaf ear,” he said in a recent interview with Punch newspapers.
He also spoke on how his administration in the AGN is working on a way to make sure it remains a thing of the past.
But I really do not believe in actors coming out to beg for money to solve one issue or the other and that is why my administration is working on a biometric card with my friend Pretty Okafor of PMAN so that we can know all our members and cater for them especially when they are in dire need of help.
