From Yakubu Mustapha, Minna

Niger state governor, Dr. Mu’azu Babangida Aliyu has described the death of Professor Dora Akunyili as a big blow to Nigeria in the area of intellectual competence and patriotic citizenship.
The Niger state governor described the late NAFDAC Director-General as a fountain of knowledge, professional expertise who exuded servant leadership during her national service.
The governor’s position was contained in a statement issued by his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. Israel Ebije, who described Professor Akunyili as a good example of a true Nigerian who despite her ill health was ready to offer her fountain of knowledge at the on-going National Conference.
“Professor Dora Akunyili was a leading example of patriotic leader for change. She believed in the Nigerian project and continued to champion her belief even till death.”
“We will continue to respect her courage, which she expressed in good health and in sickness. She was indeed a symbol of hope for women in government, a symbol of hope for a better Nigeria; hope is not completely lost, as we still have Nigerians who can offer themselves to true service”.
He urged Nigerians to emulate Professor Akunyili, adding that Nigeria will be repositioned socially, politically and economically if people are more selfless and determined to change the systemic rot.
