Fashola To Pay Pa Kasumu's Medical Bill

Lagos State Governor, Babatunde Fashola has intervened to save ailing actor, Pa Kasumu who is suffering a heart and kidney complication.
The news was confirmed by Pa Kasumu’s son, Tunde Odumosu who told reporters over the telephone that the governor has offered an intervention.
‘Governor Fashola is a very proactive governor. Just when we were still trying to send letters out and raise funds from different sources, he intervened and has asked that my father be taken for a new test.  We are really grateful to the God, the Governor and to Nigerians’, Odumosu said.
Odumosu says it is unclear how much involved the governor wants to get, but the family is hopeful that he will go all the way. ‘Although he (Governor Fashola) hasn’t really declared a figure, we are hopeful that since God has touched him to ask my father to undergo a test, he will fully intervene.’
Pa Kasumu needs N12million to treat a health situation that has compromised his heart and liver.
