Former chairman of the board of trustees of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Tony Anenih underwent an open-heart surgery in a UK hospital last month.
A member of the family, confirmed this development to The Cable and said it was “only God” that saved the life of the politician who clocked 82 last month. The heart condition was accidentally discovered when the former minister of works and housing was preparing to return to Nigeria after a visit to the UK. He was said to have complained of irregular heartbeat, prompting a family member to make an emergency call for an ambulance. The operation however turned out successful and he has returned to the country.
