Former Nigerian vice president, Alex Ekwueme needs prayers and the All Progressives Congress (APC) wants Nigerians to take this serious.

Their Abia state chairman, Donatus Nwankpa, has called on the Federal and South-East state governments to rally round the former Vice President to ensure he gets proper medical treatment.

“Ekwueme is a national figure. The Federal and the South-East governors should rally round the elder statesman to ensure that he gets the best of treatment.

“He was vice president under Alhaji Shehu Shagari in 1983. Most of the Federal Government colleges were built under his watch and at a minimal cost.

“The former vice president has never been indicted of any corruption. Ekwueme’s issue transcends party politics.

“I call on the Federal Government and the five south-east governors to urgently move in and intervene to ensure that he gets the best of treatment anywhere in the world.”

Also, the Enugu State government said it had visited the elder statesman in the hospital.

The Commissioner for Information, Mr Ogbuagu Anikwe, revealed that Gov. Ifeanyi Ugwuanyi, visited the former vice president in the hospital.

He, however, declined comment on the outcome of the governor’s visit to Ekwueme.
