The prestigious Women Devel­opment Center, Awka, Anam­bra State has been renamed as the Prof. Dora Akunyili Women Development Center, Awka as part of a well organised effort to im­mortalize the former Minister of Information and NAFDAC Director General, who fell to cancer last year.
The renaming of the Cen­ter came after a........
memorial mass that was attended by prominent citizens like for­mer Vice President Dr. Alex Ekwueme, former National Chairman of APGA, Chief Victor Umeh, PDP Women Leader, Iyom Josephine An­eni, Chief Executive of the National Center for Women Development, Onyeka On­wenu, as well as key mem­bers of the Anambra State Executive Council.
Remembering the late Amazon in a brief speech titled, “Immortalizing Prof. Dora Akunyili,” Anambra State Governor, Chief Wil­lie Obiano, described her as a beloved sister, daughter, wife, mother, teacher, mor­alist, crusader, role model, merchant of hope and angel of light, pointing out that in gathering to immortal­ize her, Ndi Anambra were simply trying to remind themselves that “the great­est legacy a man or woman can leave is a good name. “Brothers and sisters, we are gathered here to affirm the wise saying of our el­ders that ezi afa ka ego – a good name is better than gold!”

Nice One Governor! May God continue to to bless your departed soul Sister Dora Akunyili!

Share your thoughts.....thanks!
