The photograph of aging and sick Chief Francis Arthur Nzeribe, with medics around him has gone viral in the social media.
Nzeribe, who is now 78, was defeated in the 2006 primaries of the Peoples Democratic Party to elect a senatorial candidate for his Orlu Imo state constituency.
He has not been a factor in the Nigerian politics for close to a decade.
He once ran for office as president and was elected a senator in the short-lived Babangida military-Civilian rule experiment and in 1999 and 2003.
We wish him a quick recovery.
Nzeribe was a close ally to former military president, ibrahim babangida.
