Tribute To The Late Dora Akunyili


Where
were
the
opposing
ghost? ,
when
the
sun
sank
in
darkness!


where
were
the
Tigress? ,
when
the
hunting
ghost
came
to
strike.



Where
were
thepitying
heart
of
death? ,
no
consideration
no
perquisite
to
personality? .



Like
a
Nonentity,
the
Lionhearted
were
dosed
to
an
everlasting
sleep.



DoraMrs.
Akunyili,
an
international
view
of
excellen ce,
the
perfect
example
of
probity
and
integrity,
the
sphere
of
pharmacology
shall< br>cry
tears
for
your
absence.



Hmmmmm!
this
death!
this
death! ! ,
what
have
the
just
stole
in
your
living
room? .



Dora,
the
disguised
person
in
the
sp here
of
counterfeit
foods
and
drug s.



We
cry
helplessly
like
the
weak
hearted,
would
death
have
a
stop
button? ,
I
and
Nigerians
would
switch
it
off
forever.



You
will
be< br>misted
for
your
kind
is
find less.



And
we
remain
in
this
diabolical
earth's
habitat
thou gh
you
have
gone
beyond
sight,
but
with
your
intersection
and
that
of
the
saints,
we
could
have
another;
Prof.
Dora
Akunyili.



And
we
pray
to
the
Almighty;
that
your
great
soul
gets
a
great
resting
bed
in
the
bosom
of
God,
amen! .
