AWKA — Chief of Staff to the ailing Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu-Ojukwu, Mr. Bob Onyeama, has denied reports that the health of the Ikemba Nnewi, who is on admission in a London hospital, was deteriorating.
There were reports from the internet Monday that Ojukwu may not be in any position to return to the country very soon as there has not been any significant improvement in his health since he was rushed to the United Kingdom last year.
Reacting to the report, Onyeama said: “There is no truth in the internet reports that the health of the ailing Ikemba Nnewi, Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu-Ojukwu, who is in a London hospital, has deteriorated.”
Onyeama said Ojukwu, who suffered stroke is getting better. He also said he and Ojukwu’s wife, Bianca, were with him and that nobody else had seen Ikemba to warrant any speculation about his present condition.
Also, Senior Special Assistant to Gov. Peter Obi on Media, Mr. Val Obienyem, urged people not to worry about the internet reports, adding that the state government was monitoring Ikemba’s recovery and assured that he would soon return to Nigeria fully recovered.
