TRAGEDY has struck again at the National Conference with the death of former Minister of Information, Prof. Dora Akunyili making it the third of such since President Goodluck Jonathan on March 17 inaugurated the Justice Idris Kutigi-led conference.
Akunyili was one of the delegates representing Anambra State and was a member of the Iyom Josephine Anenih-led committee on Social Sector.
Akunyili could not participate at plenary and committee sessions because of her ill- health as she only appeared during discussions on Jonathan’s inaugural speech.
The first death at the conference was that of Hamman Misau, from Bauchi State and a delegate on the platform of the Association of Retired Police Officers of Nigeria, ARPON.
The second person who died was a delegate from Kaduna State, Prof. Mohammed Jumare.
