Akunyili’s husband says wife risked everything for love of country


Dr Chike Akunyili, husband of Professor Dora Akunyili, has been very supportive to his wife since the news of her strange ailment broke out last year.

He took to his facebook page a while ago to thank well wishers for their support for his wife, who is fast recuperating.

“May the good LORD bless all of you that have prayed and still pray for my unique and lovely wife, DORA. She is a noted personality and risked everything for the love of our dear country, NIGERIA. I thank God that I was present when she made that very singular speech. It resonated in the corners of the Confab and instantly touched many hearts. The illness has not blunted her childlike frankness in our blessed 36 years of marriage. Thanks a lot”

Last Tuesday, the former Minister of Information, Dora Akunyili, appeared at the ongoing National Conference, with a declaration that the confab was President Goodluck Jonathan’s most courageous act.

In her contribution during the discussion on the inaugural speech of the President,  frail looking Mrs Akunyili said the conference was Jonathan’s gift to the country.
