Chike Bryan, who was diagnosed with kidney failure in July 2013, had his situation made known to President Jonathan by the Actors Guild of Nigeria (AGN) President, Ibinanabo Fiberisima during the guild’s visit to the Presidency office earlier in the year. Upon the release of the money to support Bryan’s treatment, Ibinabor Fiberesima beamed with joy as she announced the good news at the AMAA awards in Bayelsa State over the weekend.

Acknowledging the support, Mr Bryan thanked the President as well as Ibinabo Fiberisima who helped to facilitate it in her capacity as the AGN President. In a telephone interview with Encomium magazine, Ibinabo thanked the president for the kind gesture and promised to do more for other artistes in similar conditions.

“You are aware that a member of Nollywood, Chike Bryan, has been sick for a while now. Fortunately, President Goodluck Jonathan has given him some money to take care of himself and we have to appreciate him for always being their for us” she said

Chike Bryan was diagnosed with chronic renal failure in July 2013 and has been undergoing dialysis at Igando General Hospital, Lagos. He will now proceed to India for intensive medical care.
