Dora Akunyili Sends Heart-Touching Message from Her Sick Bed in India
Former Minister of Information and Communications, Prof. Dora Akunyili, says she is grateful for all the prayers on her behalf by Nigerians and other well wishers across the world.
Akunyili was flown to India for further treatment over the weekend.
In a statement conveyed on her behalf by her media adviser, Isaac Umunna, she said: “I am touched – indeed, overwhelmed by the outpouring of love and affection by my fellow countrymen and women, as well as numerous other well wishers around the world, many of whom have not only been praying for me but have also been mobilizing through the various social networks for God’s healing hands to come upon me.
“I am confident that Almighty God will hear our prayers and grant me quick recovery. I love you all and pray that Almighty God blesses you all.”
Umunna in the statement confirmed that Prof. Akunyili is presently receiving treatment in India, saying that she is responding to treatment.
“She was first attended to by doctors in Abuja but had to travel to India on Sunday on their advice for further medical attention. Her husband, Dr. Chike Akunyili, who travelled with her, has spoken with me to confirm that she has started treatment and is responding well. Dr. Akunyili asked me to convey his appreciation and that of Dora to Nigerians and other well wishers throughout the world,” Umunna added.
Akunyili is a former director-general of the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) and a former minister of information in the Umaru Musa Yaradua administration.
She is currently a delegate in the ongoing national conference in Abuja.
