share on:

Chidiogo, one of the children of the late former Director-General, National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control, Prof. Dora Akunyili, has described the final moments she spent with her mother in a touching tribute she posted on Facebook.

It goes:

To many, she was an icon, to others, she was an inspiration, to me, she was my mother and all of the above. What I told her just last week stays with me. “I am your daughter, and you raised me, you have been (in the midst of everything), mummy and that is the strength that is now mine and all of us your children. it is also the strength of a whole nation…you touched so many lives, and that is a blessing that must not be taken lightly.” Thank you all so much my dear friends from the bottom of my heart for your kind words. Mummy, may your soul rest in eternal peace, one with God, who you loved and served above all else.



Please drop some kind words in honor of Mrs. Dora below as well. May her lovely soul rest in peace

  1. Prof.Dora Akunyili served like a humble servant,to Nigerians,and above all was an example of dogged women in Nigeria worth emulating.She unfortunately lost in her bid to serve Anambrarians,though,she is forever with the Lord who is her Master architect and physician.May the legacy she left not bring discomfort and disunity among her children and all.Rest in Peace,Till we meet to part no more.
