One of the children, Chidiogo, of the late former NAFDAC DG/ex-infromation minister, Dora Akunyili who died on June 7 in India after a two-year battle with cancer has paid tribute to her mother.
Chidiogo a Economics and International Relations graduate of Johns Hopkins University, Maryland, United States wrote on her Facebook of the happy moments she spent with her mother before she died.
She wrote; “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 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,” she added.
