Chukwuma Eboh typifies beliefs anticipated of a youth; diligent, bold and focussed. A shoe dealer at Port Harcourt, Rivers State, he eked out a residing from part of the revenue he realised and ploughed again the remainder into the enterprise to make it develop.

With onerous work and prayers, the 33-year-old man was sure of reaching the Promised Land in no distant time.

Sadly, a kidney illness that struck him about two years in the past seems to have shattered his goals. His ambition has now given strategy to pains he grapples with daily because the power renal illness worsens.

The native of Anambra State is now on a weekly dialysis which has gulped all his financial savings and people of his relations.

A medical report dated September 10, 2019 and signed by a Medical Sonologist, Dr Vicky Zaccheus, of Concord Superior Diagnostic Centre in Ilorin, Kwara State, said that Chukwuma’s “kidneys present elevated echogenecity of the renal cortex and medulla with full lack of corticomedullary differentiation.”

The dealer’s brother, John Eboh, informed our correspondent that the household had been struggling to lift N9.3m for ailing Chukwuma to bear kidney transplant to no avail.

He stated, “He can’t transfer and eat properly. In the intervening time, he has low PCV. He used to promote males sneakers however for the reason that illness began, he couldn’t do something once more. We’ve got spent every thing we’ve on dialysis.

“He wants N7.3m for kidney transplant at Zenith Medical and Kidney Centre, Abuja.

“The donor is requesting N2m from us earlier than he can donate his kidney to my brother. He gave us this month to pay him or else he’ll donate to a different affected person who is able to pay N4m.”
