The daughter of Late Professor Dora Akunyili who recently got married to her canadian beau, Andrew Parr this weekend commemorates the 4th anniversary of her death with this photos of them striking a similar pose.
Chidiogo Akunyili’s mum, Dora Akunyili, was the Director General of National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) and Nigerian Minister of Information and Communications from 2008 to 2010.
She died in India 2014 after a drawn-out battle with Cancer, and her sad absence must have been keenly felt by her daughter who writes on how her life story has made her stronger in the past 4 years.
She had this to say:
“It’s been four years since your body left this world. It’s been everyday that your spirit remains strong. Thank you for inspiring me to write your story. Thank you for all the ways you guide and love us, your children that are so many more than your biological ones.
For me, this past weekend and the many miracles of the day fills me with the continued knowing that you are with us.
Your life is a story of strength arising from the ashes of struggles — the deeper your scars, the stauncher was your fight and spirit of justice and truth. I look forward to sharing with the world the power of conviction and the courage needed to follow through.”
