Ekwueme now receives visitors, sits up and eats, as FG yet to fly him aboard for treatment

The family of former Vice President, Dr Alex Ekwueme, has dismissed the report making the rounds that the elder statesman is dead. The family said the posts, which emerged on social media, yesterday, were unfounded as the elder statesman is still alive and his health condition improving.

In a statement, yesterday, by the family spokesman, Mr. Uche Ezechukwu,  the Ekwueme family said: “The wicked rumour making the rounds about the deterioration of the condition of Dr Alex Ekwueme is totally untrue. The truth is that the elder statesman is alive and well. His condition is not only stabilizing but improving considerably.

“In fact, the former VP  has moved from a stage of unconsciousness to a state whereby he now receives visitors, sits up and eats. It is also important to inform that Dr Ekwueme is yet to be taken abroad, as the necessary documentation and preliminary arrangements  are on course and  are being completed. “Any statement I  make on the elder statesman is impeccable and have full authentication of the family.”

Also, yesterday, close family friends asked the Federal Government to fulfil its promise to fly Ekwueme abroad for adequate treatment.
