Julius Agwu's Health: Friends, Colleagues, Fans Move To Save Comedian


After battling illness and surviving brain surgery last year to come back to his feet, ace comedian Julius ‘Da Genius’ Agwu seems to have fallen ill again.

While the illness is yet to be disclosed, it is serious enough that Agwu who was in London recently to attend the Nottinghill Carnival and perform at his signature comedy show, Crack Ya Ribs, on Sunday, August 28, could not turn up.

Prior to his illness, Agwu had been actively promoting the show on social media.

However, his last post on Twitter was on August 25 where he wrote; ‘#LIFEasISeeiT @ London, United Kingdom.’

Friends, colleagues and fans have been wishing the comedian recovery ever since news of his illness filtered out last week.

Though, statements from his camp said the comedian was just in hospital for routine checks, on Wednesday, foremost Nollywood filmmaker Zik Zulu Okafor posted a picture on his Facebook account of Julius Agwu lying on a bed with bandaged head, eyes closed and tubes across his chest and face.

“RISE ! RISE JULIUS ! RISE!” Okafor wrote poetically.

“You have no business lying on this bed! You are a sprightly and springy soul, constantly on the move. You can’t be in pain and agony when you are the laugh merchant. You trade in smiles and laughter, you make it possible for us to afford a smile even in brutally challenging moments. So, why on earth, should Julius D’ Genius be held down in pain. It is a tragic irony in a tragic world. On this solemn afternoon, in my office, as I go down on my knees, I call on my God that has never failed me. I call Him to lay his hands on you. And I decree that you are healed in Jesus name. You will rise and shine. My God will restore your health in full. You will return hale and hearty. You will spring to your sprightly self with all the zing and zest that define the quintessential Julius D’ Genius. You are WELL. Rise Julius! Rise and shine again! The world waits for the new jokes from your vault of laughter. We need it to tame the pain of ailing economy. You must rise, Julius my bro.”

Continuing, Okafor implored Nigerians to come to the comedian’s aid.

“To all Nigerians, the Federal, state governments, I call on you now; let’s arise and save this man that keeps many traumatised Nigerians alive, heal many wounded souls with his jokes. He is a thriller and a healer. Let’s heal this healer of pains that is now in pain. God can do it for us. But we have a role to play. LET’S RISE TO SAVE JULIUS. WE CAN GIVE FINANCIAL OR SPIRITUAL SUPPORT AT THIS TIME. DO GIVE SOMETHING. GOD SAVE JESÚS! GOD BLESS YOU! In Jesus Name… Amen!!”

Title-crazy civil servants to go

Title-crazy civil servants are scared of being sacked, The Nation learnt at the weekend. Officials, who violated the Public Service Rule banning titles until after retirement, may be retired in the coming civil service reforms.
Only those whose titles were traditionally inherited may be spared but their postings and conduct will be put under watch.
According to sources, the government is disturbed that most of the top civil servants with honorary awards actually bought them at high fees.
The affected civil servants violated the rules which grants them the right to such honors only after retirement.
Besides committing the resources of Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAS) to such awards, most of the civil servants used the window to “grant favour to groups, persons, and communities in violation of their oath of office.”
