Dora Akunyili memorial.
Dora Akunyili is my favourite female Nigerian official after Mrs Olufunmilayo Kuti..I fell in love with her the first time i saw an interview of her as the boss of NAFDAC.How President Buhari could have done with Prof Akunyili in his cabinet right now,her death was and still is a sad loss to Nigeria as a whole!
Family and friends of late Professor Dora Akunyili gathered in Anambra state yesterday September 5th to hold a lecture to commemorate her 1st year remembrance. Governor Obiano of Anambra state unveiled a plaque announcing the renaming of the Women Development Center, Awka which will now be known as the Prof. Dora Akunyili Women Development Center, Awka as part of efforts to immortalize her. Guest at the memorial lecture included Alex Ekwueme, Onyeka Onwenu, Peter Obi and others. More photos after the cut...
