The immediate past governor of Anambra State,
Peter Obi, who visited the late NAFDAC DG in
India last month, has spoken of the professor�s
wish for Nigeria before she passed on.



On behalf of the Akunyili�s family, I wish to
officially confirm the death of Prof. (Mrs.) Dora
Nkem Akunyili, OFR, in a Specialist Cancer
Hospital in India this morning at 10 am, Nigerian
Time, after a two-year battle with cancer,� he
said in a statement released to the media by Isaac
Umunna, Media Advisor to Dora Akunyili.

The full statement below:

On behalf of the Akunyili�s family, I wish to
officially confirm the death of Prof. (Mrs.) Dora
Nkem Akunyili, OFR, in a Specialist Cancer
Hospital in India this morning at 10 am, Nigerian
Time, after a two-year battle with cancer.

In spite her illness, Prof. Akunyili was
unwavering in her belief in a better Nigeria. That
was why she defied her condition and was part
of Anambra State Handover Committee and the
National Conference.

The last time I visited her in India, even when she
needed all the prayers herself, she was full of
concern for the abducted Chibok girls, security
and other challenges facing the country and told
me that she remained prayerful for the release of
those girls and for God to help President
Goodluck Jonathan to overcome all the
challenges facing the Nation.

She therefore urged all Nigerians to remain
prayerful and committed to building a better
society for our children. We all prayed together
and I promised to be visiting her every month.

We thank all those who remain fervent in
prayers for her recovery and urge them to
remain prayerful for the peaceful repose of her
soul.
