Baba Suwe on admission at LUTH —TAMPAN President

Babatunde Omidina popularly known as ‘Baba Suwe’ has been admitted at the Lagos University Teaching Hospital in Idi Araba, Lagos.

Mr Bolaji Amusan, the National President, Theatre Arts and Motion Pictures Producers Association of Nigeria disclosed this to the News Agency of Nigeria on Friday in Lagos.

Amusan popularly known as ‘Mr Latin’ as his stage name said that the development was as a result of the approval of the association’s appeal  to the Federal Government to foot the medical bill of Baba Suwe.

He said the ailing veteran comedian who was  alleged  to be suffering from an unknown sickness had been promised a first class treatment by  the Federal Government  at LUTH.

Amusan said that  the Minister of Health, Prof Isaac Adewole, had made arrangements for the comedian to be treated while the Federal Government will foot the medical bills.

Amusan said, “Myself and other association members have just taken Baba Suwe to LUTH from his residence .

“I want to appreciate the minister for this gesture, we are happy that our colleague will be back on his feet after a comprehensive treatment.

“He is receiving first class treatment and we feel so honoured.”

I also thank the Vice-President, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, for his generousity, having donated N1m toward Baba Suwe’s treatment.

“I also thank  everyone who had made donations toward our appeal for him, we can’t appreciate them enough.

“As the new president of the association, the welfare of my members is paramount on my mind which I have determined to improve within my four  years’ tenure,” he said.

NAN efforts to confirm the admission of Baba Suwe as a patient  from the Public Relations Office of LUTH, Mr Kelechi Otuneme, was not successful as he did not pick calls made  to his mobile phone.

NAN reports that the ailing comedian had been soliciting financial support to enable him seek urgent medical attention.
