Nigeria’s former minister of information, Dora Akunyili, is critically ill and is set to be flown to India Saturday night, May 10, 2014.

According to reports by Scoop, the former NAFDAC boss is having serious health issues and has been advised by her doctor to leave for India immediately.

Akunyili, who is a delegate in the ongoing National Conference, was just recovering from a serious ailment which she suffered from late last year into this year.

After being away from the public eye for months, she attended the Confab after saying she had fully recovered and only needed time to put on some weight.

  3. May the God of TB Joshua heal you from that evil attack sickness. Mrs Dora you are healed in Jesus name.

  4. I wish her speedy recovery. I also wonder why she chose to attend the National confab when she knew she was not in good health. Why do Nigerian political leaders or office holders try to hold on to power by all means. She started out well with the NAFDAC appointment but she became seduced by power, fame, and notoriety.

    I will speak the truth and say she should not have attended the National Confab, it must have been stressful and unhealthy for her not to talk of exposing her to negative energies. I pray God heals her and she recovers fully. When she gets back she should stay out of politics and go into academics where she will impart knowledge to a future generation. In Nigeria people never want to leave the political stage, they cling on till they ruin their legacy completely.
