Chukwu set for surgery in London

More facts have emerged in the arrival of former Eagles captain and head coach, ‘Chairman’ Christian Chukwu in London, as it has now been confirmed that he will undergo surgery at Wellington Hospital. Chukwu arrived London on Thursday with his wife, Lilian Nkeiruka, his sister, Mrs Edith Chinelo Motanya and a member of the Super Eagles’ medical crew, Dr. Ibrahim Gyaran, who will guide him through the process of the impending operation and after-surgery care.

While confirming Chukwu’s schedule, Nigeria Football Federation president, Amaju Pinnick disclosed that the soccer body will also soon institute a welfare foundation for ex-international players in order to guarantee ready funding for them in case of health challenges.

The NFF boss, who is also first vice-president of Confederation of African Football (CAF), gave this assurance in London, after receiving Chukwu alongside his wife and sister. Pinnick stated: “At the last AITEO/NFF Football Awards in Lagos on 1st April 2019, we announced that a welfare foundation would be instituted for our legends to take care of them in times of their need. “At that time, we didn’t even have any idea that Chukwu would be faced with this kind of health challenge. “I am happy that he is here nd we have made adequate arrangements for his surgery, medication and general after-surgery care.”
