June 8th, made it four years since the passing away of Nigerian former minister, Dora Akunyili. Her daughter, Chidiogo, who got married recently, took to her Instagram page to write an emotional tribute to her.
In her words, Chidiogo thanked her late mum for instilling the right values and character in her. She also acknowledged her late mum as a strong woman and source of inspiration.
She wrote:“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.”
