The health condition of the former minister of information, Prof. Dora Akunyili who has been undergoing treatment in an Indian hospital is being described as not as speculated in some quarters.
This note of hope was raised by the former Governor of Anambra State, Mr Peter Obi who had gone to visit her. He said the reality he saw was not in conformity with earlier pictures painted about her condition.

Dora’s husband, Dr. Chike Akunyili, was full of thanks for Nigerians for their out-pouring of love and concern, urging them to intensify prayers for his wife. He also, in the same breadth, thanked the doctors for their professionalism and commitment to duty.
