The man of God and General Overseer of Omega Fire Ministries International, Apostle Johnson Suleiman practically came to the rescue of the ailing media guru and producer of the popular fans teeming Yoruba  programme, Idan Irawo, Kunle Agboola who has been battling with a nagging kidney disease for a while now.
The committee of friends of the media practitioner, according to sources had made frantic efforts to reach out to the man whose passion for humanity is second to none for an urgent need to raise funds for his dialysis and eventual kidney transplant which medical experts have warned must be very soon, if the man must live.
It is on this premise that, an SoS message was sent to Apostle Suleiman’s direct line who responded promptly and doled out an initial five hundred thousand naira (N500,000) while promising to do more.
We gathered the man of God was so passionate about the cause that he requested to pray for the ailing producer and later promised to set off the bill for the kidney transplant.
“Just be courageous, you will not die, the angels of the Lord are with you, please manage this half a million for the medical urgencies, we shall talk later through the representative of your committee of friends”, he gave Mr. Agboola rays of hope through prayers and financial promises.
 It will be recalled that, the indefatigable producer has been down with a chronic kidney ailment for a while and several media practitioners and firms such as AIT, Tiwantiwa TV, DSTV and celebrities like Mercy Aigbe and so on have taken it upon themselves to run fund raising campaigns via their respective social media handles.
