“I am confident that Almighty God will hear our prayers and grant me quick recovery. I love you all and pray that Almighty God blesses you all.
“She was first attended to by Doctors in Abuja but had to travel to India on Sunday on their advice for further medical attention. Her husband, Dr. Chike Akunyili, who travelled with her, has spoken with me to confirm that she has started treatment and responding well.
