- Former governor of Anambra state, Peter Obi, is reportedly ill
- Obienyem, Obi's media aide, said his boss visited hospital after complaining of being a little feverish
- Atiku's running mate noted that there are many hospitals he can confidently visit whenever he is in Anambra state
A former governor of Anambra state, Peter Obi, on Monday, May 6, visited Queen of the Rosary hospital, Waterside, Onitsha, dropped samples for a test and received treatments.
Vanguard reports that Obi's media aide, Obienyem, said that his boss has returned back to his house and as usual went straight to work.
Legit.ng gathered that Obienyem said Obi visited the hospital on Monday, May 6, adding that he complained of being a little feverish.
According to him, "Today, on entering the house at 7:30 am (his routine has not changed significantly), I was informed that he went to Queen of the Rosary Hospital, Waterside, Onitsha. Very soon he was back.
"Anambra hospital abandoned after N25m renovation by govt I learnt he went to the hospital, saw a doctor and had samples taken for tests. As usual, he went straight to work even when I suspected that doctor might have advised bed rest. We were at work till the departure to Lagos in the afternoon. Like every human being, he gets sick.
Quoting Obi’s words, his aide wrote: “There are many hospitals I can confidently visit when ever in Anambra state. I can visit Odumegwu-Ojukwu Teaching Hospital at Awka, we got it accredited. I can visit the General Hospital at Onitsha, we also got it accredited.
"Why do I say so? I know the resources our government committed to these hospitals and I can testify the level of their improvement before we left office. If leaders sustain such efforts, in 20 years, nobody should be talking of medical tourism. I went to Waterside and received fantastic treatment. I spent not up to 1/30th of what I would have spent If I travelled."
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had previously reported that the vice-presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the last general election, Peter Obi, said he spent this year’s Easter Holiday in hospitals across Anambra state.
Obi made the comment on Tuesday, April 13, at Umueje, Ayamelum local government area when he visited the Diocesan Hospital in the town, accompanied by the Anglican Bishop of Niger West, Most Rev. Dr. Johnson Ekwe.
