The Anambra-born politician took to her Facebook page, through Isaac Umunna, her Media Adviser, stating that she was alive. Her post reads,” “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. ”
Former Minister of Information, Professor Dora Akunyili has dispelled her death rumour. The blogsphere was awash on Friday with the news that the former NAFDAC boss passed away in an Indian hospital after a protracted battle with heart-related ailment.
