The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) says the late former Minister of Information and ex-Director General of NAFDAC, Prof. Dora Akunyili will always be remembered by all as a fearless Nigerian, a great African and an amazon who risked her life severally to save the lives of others with her unprecedented fight against fake and counterfeit drugs in the country.
Olisa Metuh the Publicity Secretary to the party said the nation has lost one of her best. Prof. Akunyili was a great Nigerian, an exceptionally brilliant academician, a consummate and energetic administrator who excelled in all assignments given to her.
As a minister of information, she deployed her best in the effort to rebrand and reposition the image of the nation and rekindled the spirit of patriotism among the people with her ‘Good people, Great nation’ campaign.
The PDP notes that even in her battle with cancer, Prof. Akunyili demonstrated her love for the nation by making herself available as a delegate in the on-going National Conference where she made very useful contributions for the stability and growth of the nation.
The PDP condoles with the Akunyili family, the good people of Anambra State, the academic community and the entire nation and pray God to grant the bereaved the fortitude to bear the loss.
