Nigerian Football Legend needs your help

For all the lovers of football (soccer), especially those who love African football, one of the legends of that sport is in dire need of medical attention. Christian "Chairman" Chukwu, who captained the famous Enugu Rangers International FC and the Nigeria national team in the 1970s and early 1980s, needs a different type of support - your financial support. Your support, no matter how small, will offset the cost of surgeries and treatments to restore his debilitating health.

When I received the attached video, I thought it was an April Fool's joke.

My name is Benson Ejindu, the Grand Patron of Ex-Enugu Rangers Players Association, both in Nigeria and all over the world. My contribution to the welfare and well being of both the former and current Enugu Rangers players is unquestionable. Former players like the late Kenneth Ilodigwe, Christian Madu, Kelechi Emetole, and others who had passed on, could have lived longer, if more hands were on deck to help with their health issues. So, I am asking you to join me, this time around, in raising funds for Chairman Chukwu, who is currently in Nigeria receiving treatments for various ailments. Your financial support will help fly him to the United States for better treatment.

We are hoping to raise about $50,000 to cover Christian Chukwu's round trip flight from Nigeria and all the medical expenses. Leftover funds will help set up a health and welfare account for all Ex Rangers Players.
