June 7th, 2014 – Dora Akunyili Is Dead: Cancer Killed Former NAFDAC DG In India

Sorry for my no show for the past 7 hours, I have been on the air since…. just landed.

A source from India just confirmed with NaijaGists.com that Prof Dora Akunyili, the former DG of National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control, NAFDAC has passed on.

She died this morning at an undisclosed Specialist Cancer Hospital in India after a long time battle with cancer.

According to our source, she died around 10 am on Saturday morning after over 48 hours in coma.

Dora Akunyili who was diagnosed with cancer few months back stayed in Nigeria for Confab conference instead of catering to her health.

When her situation grew worse last month, she was airlifted to India for an aggressive cancer treatment.

After several coma episodes, Dora Akunyili eventually gave up the ghost on Saturday morning.

Her family members are yet to make an official announcement on her death.

But our source from India has confirmed the death.

Dora Akunyili’s death news is coming a week after her publicist debunked her death rumour.

May her soul rest in perfect peace.

    When I first saw this news,I skipped it with hope that was ONE OF THOSE STORIES BECAUSE OF HER SILENT,then more news,more till it became a fact.Hmmm,what a waste.
    I thought if anybody beats cancer,that person should be MRS DORA AKUNYILI.i don’t know why but I still nurse this hope that all these will turn out to be another story to distract people for her get her needed treatment,I refuse to believe she is not breathing, I find it very hard to write rip,I want a miracle on her behalf.
    She is only 59 for crying out loud,very strong woman even at her last hour she was full of hope and smiles,she never let the weight of her sickness put her down,SHE IS TO ME THE DEFINITION OF THE WORD “NIGERIA” AND WHAT IS EXPPECTED.What a waste,A fearless woman,an icon,she stood for the truth even if the world and her friends were against her,why now when she is most needed,I can’t believe I have to refer DORA AS”WAS”
    You are very right D Hunter, Nigeria has lost a diamond,a light that can never be replaced.
    What a life ! May God give her family the strength to move on without her,may he fill the void in their life created by her death.REST IN PEACE MRS DORA AKUNYILI AND FEEL NO MORE PAIN,WE CAN NEVER QUESTION GOD.
