In a statement yesterday in Abuja, the PDP chieftain condoled with the Akunyili family, the people of Anambra State and the Federal Government on the tragic loss.

The statement added: “I received with shock and disbelief the news of the tragic and untimely death of our dear daughter, Prof Dora Akunyili, in an Indian hospital. Her death came to me as a surprise because the feedback I received a few days after she was flown out of Nigeria was that of optimism, predicated on an observed marked improvement in her health condition.
