Veteran actor, William Addo aka Akpatse, has made a passionate appeal to President Nana Akufo-Addo and the general public to support him financially to undergo restoration of his vision.
RazzNews.com earlier reported that the veteran actor had gone totally blind after undergoing two glaucoma and Cataract surgeries in 2016.
According to the report, doctors at the Sogakope Hospital after undergoing series of tests in 2018, came to a conclusion that the veteran actor will never see again.
But speaking in a telephone conversation with RazzNews.com, the veteran actor, Akpatse indicated that a Naturopath Medicine expert in Natural Eye Care and Alternative Vision restoration, Hilary Hayford from the Proven Health Solution Centre at Dansoman, Accra has revealed that he can restore his sight:
“There is HOPE!!…a Naturopath expert in natural and alternative vision restoration called me from Proven Health Solutions Centre at Dansoman in Accra, and told me he can restore my site…but there is a big problem…the doctor claims the cost of the surgery is GHC40,000.00…And, my brother Razz, where will I get such a huge amount of money from? Akpetse sadly revealed.
“So, please, I will like to appeal to the president Nana Akufo-Addo, former president Mahama, Ibrahim Mahama, Hon. Kennedy Agyapong, Pastors like Badu Kobi, Bishop Charles Agyin Asare, Obofour, Bishop Thunder, companies and the general public to help me raise the money,” Akpatse appealed.
