Wow! In less than 48 hours, good Nigerians were able to raise the sum of N70 million naira for Mr. Agoboye Francis Monday who was caught on camera weeping by the roadside with his sick child who has heart disease.
According to Agoboye, his son, Beniah has many holes in his heart and needs about N15 million for surgery. He said he has spent all his life savings on his child and needs assistance from well-meaning Nigerians.
On Thursday, January 24th, he took his child to the Rivers state government house to see if he could by chance see Governor Nyesom Wike, but the security officers chased him away.
Agoboye shared photos of an appeal he wrote to the state government for help but up till now, there was no response.
He says his son has only 64 days to live if emergency surgery is not carried out.
According to a fresh report, 70million naira has been raised so far for the baby. Though the baby needed 15million for surgery, but somehow, Nigerians raised more than that for him.
