A Year Without Adorable Dora!

Exactly a year today, Prof Dora Akunyili passed-on after a two-year battle with cancer
Fondly known as “Adorable Dora”, the internationally renowned pharmacist, pharmacologist, erudite scholar, administrator, and visionary leader, is best remembered as the no-nonsense Director General of the National Agency for Foods, Drugs and Administration and Control, NAFDAC.
As Director General of NAFDAC, Akunyili distinguished herself as a diligent, dedicated and dogged public servant, restored sanity into the system and set a new standard in food and drug administration and control, such that it has been difficult for her successors to surpass
She was an Amazon of excellence whose public service record was as exemplary as it was inspiring in that she epitomised the rare values of integrity, diligence, dedication, courage and selflessness in the various capacities that she served the nation.
We remember her unwavering commitment and dedication as NAFDAC DG and even as the nation’s chief image maker when she brought Nigeria to global reckoning with her slogan of “Good people, Great Nation”
The country fondly misses this woman who loved Nigeria deeply, a patriot and a great Amazon.
Continue to rest in peace Dora!
