The Chukwu’s made these statement when they paid the oil mogul a visit in Lagos on Friday. Chukwu also said that he didn’t know Otedola before his complicated medical condition.

He further revealed that Otedola spent a total of N36,635,000 on his treatment, travel and accommodation expenses.

“Otedola has made me, I can play football again.

“If you saw me before I left for London, you won’t believe I’ll be here talking to you. I think I won’t be making a mistake if I say after God, it’s Otedola in my life.

“I had many complications and I couldn’t walk. When I heard Otedola brought out money for my treatment, I marvelled because, in my circle, we didn’t know him before then. We have people with us but maybe they forgot or it’s not in their character (to help).

“I don’t know how to thank Otedola enough, God bless him,” Chukwu said.

Philip Akinola, Acting Chief Operating Officer, Zenon Petroleum and Gas Company, who represented Otedola on the occasion, expressed delight at seeing Chukwu back on his feet again.
