Veteran actor William Addo, has begged President Akufo-Addo for, as a matter of urgency, help him save his sight.
The actor has been diagnosed with a combination of cataract and glaucoma and needs a sum of GHC40,000 to correct it or go completely blind.
This is contained in a report seen by YEN.com.gh in Graphic Showbiz.
The 69-year-old actor said his ailment started in 2016 when he was first diagnosed.
Friends and family, he disclosed, were available to help and his sight was restored.
However, he could not raise money to keep up with the regular check-ups and so the condition came back again leaving him helpless.
Addo has described the situation as “scary” because his movement has been hampered.
“I cannot even receive calls or read messages on my phone without help. I easily get lost because I do not see my way around, I need help. The president should help me, I have served Ghana well,” Addo cried.
He is of the firm belief that when he is helped and he gets well, he can still serve Ghana by nurturing young ones in the movie industry.
William Addo is also called Akpatse, and has acted in a lot of movies.
His contemporaries are Maame Dokono, Grace Nortey, George Williams, Psalm Adejeteyfio, and others.
Meanwhile, Adjeteyfio has also begged for assistance to undergo heart surgery or lose his life.
