Anenih Is Alive And Kicking, Associates Say

AnenihA former Minister of Works and erstwhile Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Peoples Democratic Party, Chief Tony Anenih is alive, his political associates have said.
The associates said they spoke to Chief Anenih after the social media became agog with rumors that he had died of cancer in a London hospital.
The associates – Edo State PDP Chairman, Dan Orbih and Barrister Vincent Akhere, said they spoke with Anenih.
They also described the rumored death as a total fabrication and handiwork of mischief makers.
Akhere confirmed that Chief Anenih travelled to London on Tuesday and that he would be back in the country this weekend.
Akhere said, “I spoke with him on phone about 15 minutes ago. Chief is well, alive and kicking. We even joke over the matter. It is true that Chief had a surgery not too long ago but is fine now”.
In his reaction, Orbih simply said that the rumour was unfortunate, adding that the people behind it should ask God for forgiveness.
