March 25, 2014 – Dora Akunyili Sick With Cancer: Former NAFDAC Boss Loses Half Body Weight
The former Director General of NAFDAC (National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control), Mrs Dora Akunyili who recently travelled to the United States of America for cancer treatment has returned back to the country.
The former NAFDAC boss was spotted in Abuja on Monday at the National Conference looking frail and fragile.
Before she left the country few weeks ago for treatment, her husband debunked cancer report but sources close to her said she has been diagnosed with ovarian cancer.
Mrs Dora Akunyili, now a shadow of her old self spoke in defense of her new look yesterday.
In her own words:
“I just need to put on some weight. 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”
Cancer is indeed a killer disease.
Please remember her in your prayers.
