Former governor of Anambra State, Mr. Peter Obi, has called on Nigerians to remember Prof. Dora Akunyili, former minister of Information, in their prayers.
He made the call yesterday in India, where he had gone to visit the former minister, who is undergoing treatment.
Obi thanked God for tremendous improvement of Akunyili and said the reality he saw was direct opposite of the grim picture some people painted about her condition. He prayed to God to grant her total healing. He also thanked President Goodluck Jonathan for directing the Nigerian High Commissioner to India to visit her in hospital and monitor her condition.
Obi, who expressed happiness that Nigerians, across ethnic and religious divides are together in wishing Dora well, said the gesture explained how dear and beholden Dora was and is still to Nigerians.
“ In spite of the unacceptability of the practice of rejoicing over people’s misfortune, the love, concern and care Nigerians have shown to Dora is a testimony that anybody who serves Nigerians faithfully as Dora has continued to do, will forever be etched in their psyches,” Obi said.
Speaking during a brief meeting between him, Dora’s husband, Dr. Chike Akunyili and the team of doctors attending to the former minister, Obi emphasised the need for Indians to come and set up facilities in Nigeria and for Nigerian doctors to also show commitment to expanding the health facilities in the country through strategic planning rather than dependency on government.
Dora’s husband, Dr. Chike thanked the doctors for their professionalism and commitment to duty. He also thanked Nigerians for the outpouring of love and concern and called on them to intensify prayers for his dear wife assuring them that God was in control.
