Fears over the health of former Minister of Information and Communications, Dora Akunyili increased after news of her being sent to India for treatment flooded the nation.
Mrs Akunyili, who was also former Director General of the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control said that all the prayers being said in respect of her health status are being heard by God and are answered already.
“I am comforted by the fact that prayers are going on for me in churches and mosques as well as in private homes. God is answering the prayers. He has already healed me. I am only waiting for the physical manifestation of the healing. I am grateful to all Nigerians. I look forward to recovering and coming back home to rejoice with you all”
This was disclosed by her Media Adviser, Isaac Umunna who issued a statement saying:
“I had before now been speaking with her husband, Dr. Chike Akunyili, and her brother, Dr. Francis Anayo Edemobi, both of whom are with her in the hospital. The fact that Dora spoke by herself this afternoon confirms earlier reports that she is making appreciable recovery”
Dr. Akunyili was fulfilling her duties as a delegate at the National Conference when she took ill last week and had to be flown out of the country for urgent medical attention.
