Daughter of Dr Alex Ekwueme, the former Vice President of Nigeria, Lady Chidi Onyemelukwe is not a happy woman, the reason is not far-fetched, as her father, Dr Alex Ekueme, a former Vice President of Nigeria, collapsed late at night on the 28th of October 2017, at his private residence along Independence Layout, Enugu.
He was rushed to a hospital where he was placed in an intensive care unit, Dr. Ekwueme who had just celebrated his 85th birthday on the 10th of October 2017, is currently in a coma.
Lady Chidi, who is the running mate to Oseloka Obaze, the Governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) for the November 18 2017, Anambra State poll, was quite distraught, when she saw her father at the hospital.
According to the doctor, the former Vice President is responding to treatment and may possibly come out of his coma, before the end of the week. The Enugu state Governor Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi also paid the former VP a courtesy visit, at his private ward in the hospital.
