Son of ailing veteran Nollywood actor, Prince James Uche, has cried out to well-meaning Nigerians to come to his father’s aid as the hospital, in which he is admitted is set to throw him out over unpaid bills.
Uche is presently hospitalized in Lagos due to kidney related ailment and urgently needs to be taken to India for a transplant.
It would be recalled that the prominent actor, who has been battling high blood pressure, diabetes and kidney failure for about eight years, has been bed-ridden at Godspower Hospital, 32 Road, C-Close, House 7, Festac Town, Lagos State, and was said to have lost his sight .
The son, Uche Jnr, on behalf of his household, has openly pleaded with Nigerians to assist them financially.
Jnr, on his Facebook page, wrote: “Living a happy life of contentment was our family’s greatest plan until our father Prince James Uche fell sick; everything changed.
“Our lives and that of dad has been under the mercy of some Good Samaritans who has assisted us all these while in paying dad’s hospital bills; clothing us and making sure we feed twice or thrice a day; but today we’re helpless as the Samaritans says they’ve also ran out of resources to continue dad’s treatment.
“Now we’re homeless and helpless as the hospital where we live our small lives with dad threatens to throw us out on January the 3rd 2017 if no one harken to our cry.
“We are only kids and can’t help the situation; even going to school is a thing of the dreams to us now but we call on the good people of Abia State and our great nation Nigeria for help!
