June 8, 2014 – Dora Akunyili Died Of Cervical Cancer At Specialist Hospital In Bangalore India

The family members of late NAFDAC boss, Prof Dora Akunyili have finally confirmed her death.

The popular civil servant passed away today in Bangalore, India around 10am on yesterday.

Dora Akunyili died at age 59.

A statement signed by former Anambra State Governor, Peter Obi, on behalf of the family, said she died at 10 a.m. Nigerian time in a Specialist Cancer Hospital following a two-year battle with the disease.

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

“She therefore urged all Nigerians to remain prayerful and committed to building a better society for our children,” he said.

Dora Akunyili died 4 weeks after she was airlifted to Bangalore India for cervical cancer treatment.

May her soul rest in perfect peace (amen).

    Stop all this spiritual nonsense. When someone dies in Nigeria there is always somebody to blame. God did not create human beings to live forever. Dead
    Death is a necessary end that must come to every living thing on earth. So please stop the blame game.
    May her soul rest in peace.

    Please let’s add insult to their injury, she herself is well educated same with the husband and they never gave any word towards the said allegations been made here because they know what she went through.

    If cancer can be sent to people,
    I personally will buy all the Hiv,stroke,blindness and most more that are in the market and send them to boko harams,their supporters and corrupt system.cancer is real and in peace Dora.
