Controversy has also emerged regarding where the Minister should receive medical care.

Allegedly, the permanent secretary of the Ministry, Ngozi Onwudike, insisted that she should remain at the public hospital (FMC) due to cost-effectiveness for the government.

On the other hand, the Minister’s family expressed reservations about this decision but remained with her, unable to secure funds for a private hospital transfer.

In response to the reports, Emem Mariam Ofiong, Assistant Director of Press in the Ministry, clarified the situation to Vanguard.

She emphatically debunked the poisoning claims and confirmed that Minister Lola Ade-John had been diagnosed with malaria.

According to Ofiong, the Minister has received treatment for malaria and is now in a stable condition.

Her words, “It is not true that the Minister was poisoned, she only had malaria and had been treated and is now stable.
