Former Abia State governor, Orji Kalu, is at the moment recuperating at Helios Klinik Wiesbaden hospital in Germany.
A statement credited to his wife Ifunanya Kalu said: “Orji Kalu is responding to treatment at the hospital”.
Ifunaya on Monday noted that Orji Kalu will remain in the hospital for the medical team to monitor him for some time to avoid further complications.
“We thank God, the surgery was successful”, Ifunaya enthused.
Orji Kalu, a fortnight ago was rushed to the German hospital from Abuja by his wife over an disclosed and life-threatening ailment.
Upon his arrival in Germany, he was moved to Helios Klinik where he was resuscitated.
Shortly before he went into a coma, Kalu has been in and out of the hospital for treatment.
Details of the ailment is still shrouded in secrecy by his family
Although a source revealed that Orji Kalu is chronically asthmatic, others say the illness is a serious one that relapses at any time.
At the peak of his illness, the family was devastated, believing that the frontline politician would die.
Graciously he is alive.
