Billionaire businessman, Femi Otedola, has made plans to foot the medical bill of ailing former Nigerian goalkeeper, Peter Fregene.

In a report published on punchng.com, the 72-year-old former footballer confirmed that he will be airlifted from the Benin Airport in Edo State to Lagos on Friday morning for medical evaluation and treatment.

Fregene said, “I’m leaving tomorrow (Friday) for Lagos for
treatment through the help of Femi Otedola. He had earlier sent representatives
to check on my health.

“I’ll leave through the Benin Airport. Everything has been
paid for by him (Otedola). I’m so happy for this. I’m so grateful to SUNDAY
PUNCH
 for drawing the attention of Nigerians to my plight. Thank you.”

It was reported that after Otedola’s intervention, other parties
have paid visits to Mr Fregene including the President of the Nigeria Football
Federation, Amaju Pinnick, and ex-international, Victor Ikpeba.

In May, Femi Otedola had donated $50,000 to fund former
Super Eagles coach, Christian Chukwu’s, medical trip abroad.
