Dr. Chike Akunyili, husband of immediate past Minister of Information and Communications, Prof. Dora Akunyili, has broken his silence on his wife’s health condition.

In a message posted this evening on his wife’s Facebook page, Dr. Akunyili expressed support for Dora, to whom he has been married for 36 years. He also allayed fears expressed in some quarters about his wife’s present physical condition occasioned y her recent illness.

The medical expert described Dora as “my unique and lovely wife” and as “a noted personality (who) risked everything for the love of our dear country Nigeria.”

He disclosed that he has been offering support to Dora on her present assignment as a National Conference delegate and was there live when she made a brilliant speech at the conference on Tuesday, April 1.

“I thank God that I was present when she made that very singular speech. It resonated in the corners of the Confab and instantly touched many hearts. The illness has not blunted her childlike frankness in our blessed 36 years of marriage,” Dr. Akunyili wrote.

He thanked all those who have been praying for Dora as she seeks to continue with her normal life despite having lost weight as a result of her illness.

Below is the text of his message:

“May the good LORD bless all of you that have prayed and still pray for my unique and lovely wife DORA. She is a noted personality and risked everything for the love of our dear country NIGERIA. I thank God that I was present when she made that very singular speech. It resonated in the corners of the Confab and instantly touched many hearts. The illness has not blunted her childlike frankness in our blessed 36 years of marriage. Tx+.”
