When the papaer contacted her husband, Chike Akunyili, he said his wife suffered minor health challenges but that is now okay.

“Yes, she suffered some minor health challenges but she is now okay. She is in the United States. I spoke with her today. What happened was that our son said she should come over and rest. You know all our children are abroad.

She will soon return to the country and we will show up in a public gathering. There is a couple that wants us to sponsor their wedding. Both of us will appear in public. She is now okay,” Dr. Akunyili said.
