The Chairman of the Imo Football Association, Mazi Amanze Uchegbulam, has appealed to Governor Hope Uzodimma of Imo State and the Minister of Sports, Mr.



Sunday Dare, to urgently intervene to save the ailing former Super Eagles captain, Henry Nwosu, from dying.

Nwosu, who hails from Owerri North in Imo State, was a former captain of the Super Eagles and is considered one of the most talented midfielders to play for Nigeria.

The Imo FA Chairman, in a statement signed by his Media Officer Angela Nkwo-Akpolu and made available to the Naijacrawl on Tuesday, appealed to Governor Uzodimma and Minister Dare to urgently intervene and assist the ailing ex-international who gave the country his best during his hay days.

The statement reads, “It really hurts me to see Henry in this condition now despite the millions of Naira he has spent on treatment, yet he’s in so much pain." I appeal to Governor Uzodimma and Mr. Sunday Dare to urgently intervene and assist him to access quality health care immediately. We must not abandon him now that he needs every assistance

“In those days, Henry was a delight to watch he was at defunct NNB, ACB, Iwuanyanwu Nationale and the Super Eagles. He’ll always remain a living legend. I appeal to all Nigerians of a good heart to kindly support him now.

He can be reached through his sister, Mrs. Kate Kogolo, née Nwosu. Please, let’s join hands and keep Henry alive and well. "This is a clarion call to the Nigerian Football Federation (NFF), the Minister of Sports, Mr. Sunday Dare, the government of Imo State and all Nigerians of Goodwill to rally around Nwosu to save his life," Uchegbulam appealed.

The Imo FA helmsman also expressed great appreciation to those who have been of assistance to the football star so far.

Naijacrawl gathered that the ex-player had been facing heart-related health challenges and had spent millions seeking care in Imo State without recovery.

He has now been moved to Asaba Specialist Hospital in Delta State for further treatment.
