Dora Akuyinli

LAGOS MAY 15TH (URHOBOTODAY)-Prof. Dora Akunyili, a former Minister of Information and Communications, who has been down for some time, and who is presently receiving treatment in India, has expressed gratitude to Nigerians and other well wishers across the world, who have been praying for her since the news of her sickness broke over the weekend.
According to a statement by her Media Advisor, Mr. 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 mobilising 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,”
However, Umunna also confirmed that Akunyili is presently receiving treatment in India, and that she is responding to treatment.
He said: “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.
