Valentine Obienyem, media aide to Peter Obi, says the news making the rounds that his principal suffered heart attack is false.

The vice-presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) was reportedly admitted in a hospital in Anambra state and said to be under close monitoring, with plans to fly him abroad if his condition did not improve.

But in a statement on Tuesday, Obienyem described those behind the reports as liars.

“Yesterday, I posted a report of how the former Governor of Anambra State felt a bit feverish and had to visit a Hospital at Onitsha,” he said.

“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.”

Obi was the running mate of Atiku Abubakar, presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), in the February election.
