Ex-Senate President, Bukola Saraki Foundation Clears Mr Ibu’s Medical Bills



The foundation of former Senate President, Bukola Saraki has fully covered the medical expenses of the popular Nollywood actor, John Okafor, professionally known as Mr. Ibu.




The development was disclosed in a statement released by the foundation on their Facebook page on Friday.

The statement said, “The Abubakar Bukola Saraki Foundation is honoured to have extended support to Mr John Okafor also known as Mr. Ibu, a renowned comedic icon who has graced our screens and brought joy and laughter to countless homes over the past four decades.


“The Abubakar Bukola Saraki Foundation has fully covered the medical expenses of the renowned Nollywood actor, John Okafor, popularly known as Mr. Ibu.

“When we learned of his recent health challenges and the financial burdens associated with his medical treatment, we felt a deep sense of responsibility to assist in any way we could. We promptly paid off his entire medical expenses as of Wednesday.


“We encourage everyone who can to come forward and assist in any capacity, whether it’s through financial contributions, moral support, or prayers.

“We wish him a swift and complete recovery.”


This comes days after Mr Ibu cried out for prayers following his battle with an unnamed illness which may lead to the amputation of his legs.

The actor, who did not disclose the nature of the illness, said that he risks losing his leg if the medication of the medical director doesn’t work.
