Breaking: Former VP, Alex Ekwueme is Alive

PEARL News can confirm that former Nigerian President, Dr. Alex Ifeanyichukwu Ekwueme (GCON) is still recuperating in London hospital, contrary to rumours making rounds that the elder statesman has passed on.
The octogenarian who fell into coma last week and subsequently flown abroad for treatment after President Muhammadu Buhari approved for his treatment abroad, is responding to treatment according to an anonymous source.
While some citizens praised President Buhari for the move, others see it as having a political undertone and another reminder about the country’s lack of adequate medical services.
