Popular Nigerian actress, Dakore Egbuson-Akande, has said she is willing to donate her cornea to the blind when she dies.
The mother of two, who is among the few thespians in the country to maintain a controversy-free career in Nollywood, announced this yesterday via her Instagram page.
She wrote. “I pledged my cornea to Eye bank of Nigeria, and what that means is when I leave this earth I willingly donate my cornea to help give the gift of sight especially as I would no longer be needing it…”
Then she proceeded to ask fans about their opinions. “What are your views on this and becoming a donor in general?
“I would really appreciate your kind feedback so we can start the conversation…will you be willing to do it for a loved one or a stranger?
“How do you SEE it? Factors that prevent most people from doing this is fear but of what exactly?” she asked
