This online news medium reported that Obi, who was the running mate to the Peoples Democratic Party‘s Atiku Abubakar in the 2019 elections, visited and was admitted to a hospital in Onitsha, Anambra State.
Although he had been discharged, there were reports (not on Concise) that he suffered a heart attack.
However, his media aide Valentine Obienyem, described the news as false.
“Yesterday, I posted a report of how the former Governor of Anambra State felt a bit feverish and had to visit a Hospital at Onitsha,” he said in a statement.
“I equally reported that he returned and went straight to the office to continue his work. We spent the whole day planning on the focus of his next apostolate: support to 50 selected hospitals.
“Today, the reckless fringe twisted the report that Obi suffered a heart attack. I should believe that anybody capable of coming out with such a wicked and twisted lie is as well as wishing him dead.
“But the sooner they realize that God is the creator and custodian of all lives, the better for them.
“May I, therefore, use this medium to inform the public that Obi did not suffer any heart attack or any debilitating illness.
“He felt a bit feverish, which is one of the pangs of humanity, visited a hospital in Anambra State and that is all. Mr. Peter Obi is hale and hearty.”
