“As a Sports journalist, I worked closely with him for over a decade. He touched many lives positively, especially Bayelsans, many of who today have risen to bigger positions in their chosen careers. I don’t want to mention names, but rather, I want to bring to attention of the sporting community in Bayelsa and beyond, to the present unfortunate condition of Anthony Ogola. He passionately needs your help to stay alive.”


“I’m making this appeal to patriotic Ijaw sons and daughters from Sagbama and other Ijaw communities to come to the aid of this vibrant young man.”

“In the last few months, Anthony Ogola has been in and out of hospital, struggling with a kidney disease that needs “very urgent attention”.
