Nollywood actor Ernest Asuzu is getting back in shape in Anambra state where has been receiving treatment.

The popular actor's condition had caused a major stir on social media recently after a video of him purportedly begging at a shopping mall in Lagos, surfaced online.

Following the widespread media reports on the actor's ill health, the Anambra state First Lady, Mrs. Ebelechukwu  Obiano, had intervened and evacuated the actor to Chukwuemeka Odimegwu Ojukwu Teaching Hospital Amaku, Awka, Anambra State where he has been receiving treatment in the past two weeks.

On Tuesday, 18th February, 2020, the governor's wife, who runs an NGO, the Caring Family Enhancement Initiative (CAFE), had visited the hospital to ascertain the recovery progress of the actor.

Speaking during her visit, Mrs. Obiano, said people need to embark on charity works by helping others in need at all times.

She said when she read about Azuzu's condition, she called for arrangement to be made to bring him for treatment and close attention.

She expressed satisfaction with the improvement in the condition of the actor and the quality of attention given to him so far by the Doctors at the hospital, and urged them to sustain the good job even with other patients. 

“I believe that God created me for a purpose. I do what I do because it is my calling. I am not doing it because I am a First Lady. No! I have been into it since 1991 and I am still doing it, she said.

"People just got to know about it because I became the wife of a Governor. But what I do comes from the heart. It is not something peculiar to Governors wives. I don’t want to blame anybody or look down on anybody or for not doing what they don’t do….”

Mrs. Obiano, was accompanied to the hospital by veteran Nollywood actor, Bob-manuel Udokwu, who is the Senior Special Assistant to the Anambra Governor on Creative Media.

Also with Bob-Manuel, was actress Rita Arum, who thanked the governor's wife for showing rare kindness to their friend and colleague.

On his part, Bob-manuel thanked the state governor, Willie Obiano, for making such environment for care possible and especially his wife, whose NGO does not discriminate on state of origin or boundaries but is driven by the need to help fellow human beings in need. 
Expressing his appreciation, Ernest Asuzu, thanked Mrs. Obiano for coming like an angel to rescue him even though she never knew him.

Ernest, who could not hide his joy and relief, thanked God for the wife of the Governor whose gesture he noted has driven him to tears and has given him a second chance to life when all hopes appeared lost.

On his part, the Executive Secretary of the Anambra State Health Insurance Agency, ASHIA, Dr Simeon Onyemaechi, whose office has taken up the adoption of the actor into the Anambra State Health Insurance Scheme (ASHIS), said that the benefits of the scheme cover every resident of Anambra State, irrespective of state of origin.
