Sometime ago Former D.G of NAFDAC and Minister of Information and Communications, Prof. Dora Akunyuli, was diagnosed with a life-threatening ailment which left her bedridden for sometime. According to her, she is now well and fit. She disclosed this to CKN reporters, who reached out to her during the on-going National Conference at Abuja, where she is a delegate. Hear her:
I AM WELL, FIT AND READY FOR THE NATIONAL CONFERENCE – PROF. AKUNYILI
Thank you for your enquiry. There is a saying in Igboland that goes this way: “Let the sickness take the flesh but leave the bones because with time the bones would grow new flesh.” I just came out of a major sickness, for which I thank Almighty God for delivering me. I know that God did that for a purpose, this National Conference being part of that purpose. I am well now but only need time to put on more weight. However, I am strong enough for this Conference and I look forward to collaborating with other delegates to chart the way for a better Nigeria. Thank you.
PROF. DORA AKUNYILI, OFR National Conference Delegate Fmr Minister of Information & Communications Abuja, March 24, 2014.
