TEMITAYO OLOFINLUA TELLS US ABOUT THE OKE SHE KNOWS #SaveOke

#Save Oke
I met Oke through one of my friends in my first year in OAU. He had this charm that attracted people to him, bees to nectar. Oke had a story for every occasion; a smile for every situation. That smile behind that tiny voice is what many remember.

Later, I heard that he had diabetes, that one of his toes was amputated. Oke looked well. I felt this sadness, wondered how the sad things happens to the best people. I did not know what to do. Oke’s grades got worse; the wound would not heal; it got bigger. Oke disappeared. Until last night when I saw him on Linda Ikeji’s blog. Now, I know what to do.

Oke is now a couch potato. His legs, heavy bags of stones. They cannot move him. He cannot move them. Even then, that same old look on his face remains. That look that says “It is well.” Oke is a well of optimism, always brimming, never empty. I am so sure that’s why he is still here with us.

Oke has been diagnosed with Diabetes type 1 and 2. The wound on his toe has taken his feet. It threatens to take his life. Oke needs your help. Oke needs 5million naira for an operation in India. Oke needs this money fast.

There are some things you do not choose in life; the family you are born into; the country you are born into; your genes; the sicknesses passed through those genes. Oke cannot change these. You cannot change this but, there is something you can change. Something you can save; Oke’s legs; his life.

There are two things that you can do to save Oke:

Donate: You can donate any amount to save Oke’s life. 5million naira is a long way. It would be great if one person gives that. But 5m is just 5,000 people giving N1,000 each. Please try to give a minimum of a N1,000. More is better.

Account Name: Ighiwoto Okeoghene John
Account Number: 0012913007
Bank Name: GTBank
Call: 08063255842 for any questions.
Tell someone: Everyone knows someone. You have a Facebook page, a Twitter account, a blog. You have something. You have a voice. Oke needs your voice. Please tell anyone you can about Oke’s situation. Write a Facebook status about him. Share this information on Twitter. Write this as a BB status. Talk about Oke in your office, in your church, everywhere, to everyone. Please check that it has the right account number on it.

Oke could be your family member. He could be you. Please save Oke’s life. Kindly rebroadcast

  1. We pray that Okes healing will be the one happy ending in our country nigeria that is so filled with sad stories everyday. Let’s all ba at GTB today.I will. Hanaanssami

  2. We’ll do all we can, give all we can, as many times as we have to, to saveOke.

  3. Hi Temitayo or anybody who can help. I am presently on your in France. With about Six more shows to go. I’m not with my laptop. Only browsing with my iPhone. Can someone please make a quick PowerPoint presentation of this case. A brief one to use in fund raising after each show. This is very urgent as I have a show already tomorrow.

    I’d be glad if anyone could help on this.

    God bless.

  4. Hey Qudus,

    I’m working on the presentation already… You’ll get it before the end of today. Waiting for your FB inbox… Thank you!

  5. This is beyond prayers. Oke is any one of us, and any one of us could be Oke. Let us act to save Oke’s Life, and save our own life, any one of us.

  6. His faith will make him whole. Act now, act all. It is well with oke.

  7. olagbegi adeolu

    i we try all my best to help him

  8. I had made up my mind to donate the little I could to this cause. I’ll do a lil’ more. I’ll talk abt Oke. He is evrything temitayo said he is. He was also a wonderful football player(I first met him on the football field). It’s quite pitiful he may never exhibit those skills again. I remember going to see him when he had his second toe amputated with an older friend who tried creating awareness via radio/print media. Oke has fought this battle by himself for a long while, now let’s join hands and help him win it.

  9. God will help us all.he will come out strong in JESUS name

  10. Hi..im tryin 2 create an awareness in law sch abt oke, pls send me d powerpoint presentation. Pleadandplead@yahoo.com

  11. i just did donate the little i had for oke with tears. this cant be far removed from Govt officials who are stealing tax payers money and our collective resources for their personal aggrandizement, instead of using it to save millions of suffering souls like these in Nigeria. More than the money, i pray for his fast healing and i pray for millions of others like him in Nigeria, suffering the same fate. One love bro!

  12. @Okiri Christopher R, In as much as I understand ur enthusiasm about Oke’s case, pls let’s not underestimate d power of prayer. It sure works wonders! Except if its not to God thru Christ Jesus.
    We’ll donate as God blesses us &i know by HIS grace Oke’ll be totally healed, but let’s not forget to give all the glory to God when its done.

  13. God will heal him IJNA. i????? will keep prayin for him.

  14. Its really disheartening but we’ll try and do everything humanly possible to save him. God will lay His holy hands on him IJN.

  15. I av paid in the little av gat,may God heal u amen

  16. I àv paid in d little i àv,God bless nf heal u

  17. May Allah(SWT) who created Oke without help, sees him through. Its quite touching and shocking 4 some one of his calibre to be in that situation.

  18. May Almighty touch Oke and change his situation for better… It is well!!!

  19. pls,we can do this,we spend more than 1,000 to do crazy things..God bless u as u bless oke wiv the little u have…i just did.

  20. May God lay his hands on oke nd I believe strongly dt 4rm east,west,north nd south God will send pple 2 help him

  21. oke, u r healed in Jesus name. amen.

  22. God wil intervene n perfect his healing ijn.I pray God touch d hearts of those dat do not knw hw to give amen

  23. Ernest @ peak milk

  26. On behalf of tehn, our mission is to reach out to people in need, we will send a field worker to verify this story tomorrow and report back ASAP. This however does not mean we are organising a fund raising or would collect funds on his behalf.we would only confirm the story and if true, people that wants to help can donate to his account directly.

  27. Oke u are healed by the blood of Jesus the bible says one will chase a thousand, 2 will chase 10,000 we are more than 2 nigerians praying for you hav faith in God brother!
