|The news of Dora's purported demise went viral this evening and I quickly got in touch with Dora's media aide, Chuks Umunna and this is what he sent to me not quite long|
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. -Isaac Umunna, Media Adviser to Prof. Dora Akunyili, Lagos, May 30, 2014
