IGNATIUS OKPARA, Enugu
Erstwhile Nigeria’s Minister of Information, Professor Dora Akunyili, has dispelled rumour making the rounds that she has passed on.
African Examiner reports that the social media was awash on Friday with the news of the demise of the one time Director-General (D-G) of National Agency For Food Drug Administration and Control NAFDAC.
The rumour had it that the Anambra state born politician, died in an Indian hospital after a protracted battle with heart-related ailment.
But Akunyili, on Saturday through her media Adviser, Isaac Umunna, said she is alive.
“Please disregard the rumour about Prof. Dora Akunyili’s purported death. It’s the same baseless rumour circulated every 2/3 days by some people for reasons best known to them.
“They have been at this for about 4 weeks now and are likely to continue, since they apparently derive pleasure from doing so.
“The situation, as confirmed by former Anambra Governor Peter Obi, who visited Dora in the hospital earlier this week, is that she is getting better. Thank you all.” Umunna concluded￼
