A few months ago, there were speculations that the former Director General of NAFDAC and former Minister of Information and Communications, Professor Dora Akunyili was undergoing some undisclosed health treatment in the U.S.
The professor’s husband, Chike Akunyili denied the reports in a press statement, stating thus “For the record, Prof. Akunyili is not hospitalised and there is no anxiety whatsoever over her state of health. It is true that she was sick LAST YEAR but she is well now. She is currently visiting her children in the U.S. and is living an active life. ..The story on Prof. Akunyili’s alleged sickness, therefore, lacks substance. It should be disregarded by the public.”
However, many were shocked when the Former DG made her first public appearance yesterday.
Dora Akinyuli who is now a shadow of her former self, showed up on Monday at the National Conference in Abuja to contribute her quota as one of the delegates.
A photo of her very much emaciated self at the conference has since spread online and has gotten many of her fans worried, but the former DG insists that all is well.
“I just need to put on some weight. There is a saying in Igboland that goes this way: “Let the sickness take the flesh but leave the bones because with time the bones would grow new flesh. I just came out of a major sickness, for which I thank Almighty God for delivering me. I know that God did that for a purpose, this National Conference being part of that purpose. I am well now but only need time to put on more weight” she said.
