Senator urges Akunyili’s immortalisation
A lawmaker, Senator Annie Okonkwo, has urged Anambra State government to work with the Federal Government to immortalise Prof. Dora Akunyili.
Okonkwo, who recalled that Mrs. Akunyili was one of his brilliant and hard working constituents during his sojourn at the Senate, said: “It is sad that our inspirational Dora, whose transformational strides at the National Agency for Food, Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) boosted the image of the country, succumbed to death when her services were needed.”
The lawmaker, who spoke through his special adviser, Mr. Collins Steve Ugwu, said: “Dora’s public service, commitment and contributions to national growth would be difficult to surpass.
“I enjoin the state and federal governments to immortalise her. She deserved it.”
