Dora Akunyili Dead At 59 - Former NAFDAC Chief Passed on In India

Posted in: , , ,

Professor Dora Akunyili, former Director General of the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) and ex minister of Information, has died, a family source told Sahara Reporters.

 Dr. Akunyili died in an India Hospital where she has been receiving treatment for an undisclosed ailment. She was aged 59.

Dora Akinyili made the news a couple of months back when pictures of her emerged, see here, where she was attending the on-going National Conference. She insisted then that she was well enough to be back to serve her country.

She has indeed been of immense benefit to Nigeria, especially in the area of reforming the pharmaceutical sector as well as food and drug smugglers and fakers, during her time at NAFDAC.

May her soul rest in peace. Amen.
