However, the Minister of Health Prof Isaac Adewole was said to have sent a delegation to ascertain his health situation with the aim of flying him abroad.

Ekwueme celebrated his 85th birthday last month.

Officials of the Memfys Hospital for Neurosurgery, Enugu declined comments.

Meanwhile, Anambra State Governor Willie Obiano has called for prayers from the citizens of the state for the Second Republic Vice-President.

Obiano, in his face book page, said “Anambra, please join me to pray for Nna anyi, His Excellency, Dr Alex Ifeanyichukwu Ekwueme. Dr Ekwueme is the pride of Ndigbo and our hope for a better Nigeria.”
