The former Governor of Abia State and Abia-North Senatorial Candidate, with his convoy arrived the hospital as early as 9:00 am and headed straight to the office of the Chief Medical Director. After about 30 minutes, he was accompanied by Dr. Iheanacho, a Consultant Neurologist and proceeded to the neurology department for medical examinations which lasted over an hour. All efforts to ascertain the kind of examination that was carried out on him did not yield the desired result.

Within a short while of his arrival the entire hospital premises was engulfed in chants of “APC! Everywhere you go!” The patients were not excluded as they “poured” out from their various wards shouting “OUK come and change Abia, we are suffering”. The hospital’s security men had a hard time controlling the crowd as they kept increasing in number obstructing the hospital activities.

He also inquired about the medical expenses of some of the patients and to their amazement assisted them in settling their bills.
