Ekwueme still in coma…

Indications emerged on Wednesday that the Enugu State Government has made arrangements to fly a former Vice-President, Dr. Alex Ekwueme, out of the country for medical treatment.

The second republic Vice-President is currently at the Intensive Care Unit of Memfys Hospital for Neurosurgery, in Trans-Ekulu, Enugu, after collapsing at his residence in the Independence Layout area of Enugu on Saturday.

A source in the Enugu State Government House informed Punch correspondent on Wednesday that the state government had made arrangements to fly Ekwueme out of the country, for medical attention in an undisclosed country.

Although the source did not disclose the particular country and hospital where the elder statesman would be flown to, he explained that relevant officials of the state government had contacted Ekwueme’s personal physicians in order to arrange the planned medical trip.

However, Punch correspondent learnt that plans to fly the former Vice-President out of the country might be put on hold until his condition stabilises.

It was gathered that Ekwueme is still in coma.

A source in the hospital informed Punch correspondent on Wednesday that the doctors were battling to stabilise the octogenarian, who marked his 85th birthday on October 21.

The source explained that the elder statesman might not be flown abroad until he comes out of coma.
