Dora Akunyili’s Daughter Chidiogo Set To Publish a Book About Her Late Mother

Published

on

Dora Akunyili’s daughter Chidiogo is set to publish a book about her late mother in August titled “I Am Because We Are: An African Mother’s Fight for the Soul of a Nation.” Dora was the director-general of National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control of Nigeria from 2001 to 2008.

Chidiogo Akunyili who’s the founder of She ROARs (Reimagining Our Africa Rising) made the announcement on social media alongside a big news of her expecting her first child with her Canadian husband, Andrew Parr.

Sharing the double declaration with a photo of her baby bump, she wrote:

“In the coming week(s), in the month of August, motherhood takes on a powerful meaning for me as I’ll be birthing in more ways than one. For one, there is the birth of a child, for another, there is the birth of my mother’s story. Each has been incubated inside of me, held in love and deep trust.

Both have been a most divine journey of listening, of introspection, of showing up through fear, through tears, through the ebbs and flows, saying yes to it all.

Next week, I get to share at least one of the births with you — that of the book — a four-year journey of listening to and penning Dora’s Story in a book titled – ‘I Am Because We Are: An African Mother’s Fight for the Soul of a Nation’.

I cannot wait to share in and with you all that is to come.

#IamBecauseWeAre #Motherhood #Birth”

Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala Make Time’s 100 Most Influential List

Published

Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala has been named among the top 100 most influential people in the world by Time magazine.

The director general of the World Trade Organization is featured alongside the likes of Prince Harry & Meghan Markle, singer Britney Spears, Apple CEO Tim Cook and gymnast Simone Biles.

A new photo of Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala has been released for the magazine’s front cover to mark the accolade.

According to Time Magazine:

“As the first African and first woman to lead the World Trade Organization, a 164-member group of nations that oversees trade across the world, Okonjo-Iweala took on the role of director-general this March at a watershed moment for our global health and well-being. Make no mistake, her job affects every person, family and community.

As we face a constant barrage of vaccine misinformation, bureaucratic slowdowns across both government and industry, and the rise of variants that underscore the urgency of the situation, Okonjo-Iweala has shown us that to end the pandemic, we must work together to equip every nation with equitable vaccine access. Our conversations with her have been as informative as they are energizing. This is partly because, despite the challenges, she knows how to get things done—even between those who don’t always agree—and does so with grace and a smile that warms the coldest of rooms.

The fragility of our world right now cannot be overstated. Just over a quarter of the nearly 8 billion global population is fully vaccinated.
Achieving vaccine equity is a global duty of compassion for one another. Our hope is that guided by strong leaders like Ngozi, we can get there soon.”
