Veteran Ghanaian actor,Abeiku Nyame aka Jagga Pee has made another passionate appeal to President Mahama and the general public by indicating that he needs GH₵40,000 to undergo an urgent heart surgery at the Korle-Bu Teaching hospital in Accra.

In view of this, he needs GH₵40,000 to undergo an urgent open-heart operation to replace the disease valve with mechanical prosthetic valve.
“I have undergone the medical test and the report states that i am suffering from rheumatic heart disease with severe aortic valve incompetence and mild to moderate mitral valve regurgitation.
“Doctors say i will need an open -heart operation to replace the disease valve with mechanical prosthetic valve”,Jagga Pee opined sorrowfully to www.razzonline.com
He continued,“the total cost for the surgery is 20,000 US dollars but the Ghana Heart Foundation will assist by paying 50% which is 10,000 US dollars
“I need 10.000 dollars which is equivalent to GH₵ 40,000 to undergo the surgery- But where am i going to get such an amount of money from?So am again appealing to the President and the general public to help me undergo the surgery by contacting me through 0242958030”.
