UPDATE:Peter Obi Did Not Suffer Any Heart Attack — Aide
Mr. Valentine Obienyem, the Media Adviser to the former governor of Anambra State and the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) vice presidential candidate in the 2019 general elections, Mr. Peter Obi has denied reports that his principal suffered heart attack.
ElombahNews reported Tuesday that Mr. Obi suffered a bout of feverish condition and visited a hospital in Onitsha but some media outfits twisted the story to read that he had heart attack.
Reacting to ElombahNews inqto the mischievous news, Mr. Obienyem, in a memo to ElombahNews, wrote:
“Yesterday, I wrote that former Governor of Anambra State felt a bit feverish and had to visit a Hospital at Onitsha.
“I equally reported that he returned and went straight to office to continue his work.
“We spent the whole day planning on the focus of his next apostolate: support to 50 selected hospitals.
“Today, the reckless fringe twisted the report that Obi suffered a heart attack.
“I should believe that anybody capable of coming out with such a wicked and twisted lie is as well as wishing him dead.
“But the sooner they realize that God is the creator and custodian of all lives, the better for them.
“May I therefore use this medium to inform the public that Obi did not suffer any heart attack or any debilitating illness.
“He felt a bit feverish, which is one of the pangs of humanity, visited a hospital in Anambra State and that is all.
“Mr. Peter Obi is hale and hearty.
“Though the reactions of many is that the wish of those liars for Obi should visit them, Obi’s position is that we should continue praying for the harbingers of such wicked news to realize that life belongs to God.
“He encourages Wealthy Nigerians to remember the sick and extend our hands of love to them always,” the memo reads.
Confirming the development on his Twitter handle, Reno Omokri said:
I spoke with @PeterObi. He DID NOT have a heart attack. It is @OfficialAPCNg propaganda. What they wish for him will never materialise in Jesus' name. He is in court right now, fighting for our mandate. He has been rigged out in the past and EVERY TIME. He got his mandate back!
