Amusan, popularly known as Mr Latin, said the association had been taking care of the veteran actor’s medical bills since 2017, under the administration of immediate-past President, Dele Odule.
He said: “I have just instructed the Lagos State executive of the association to check on him (Baba Suwe) to ascertain his health progress.
“I can tell you that we have not abandoned Baba Suwe, as well as any of our members, as being speculated in some quarters by mischief-makers.”
However, Amusan said they had designed a new policy to help members of the association.
