Dora Akunyili: Courageous Amazon Or Mere Opportunist?

Aunty Dora's recent frank outbursts against the shenanigans of the Yar'Adua inner-circle have attracted mixed reactions from observers. Some praise her courage, integrity and forthrightness which have been her hallmarks since her NAFDAC days. On the other hand, others see her as a mere rabble-rousing opportunist who capitalized on overwhelming public opinion to score cheap political points; that her 'memo' and the recent outbursts against the so-called 'cabal' were merely self-seeking schemes for personal aggrandizement.

Personally, I think aunty Dora's actions are honest, courageous attempts to align with the truth. She has always been a woman of integrity with a disarming naturalness and frankness.

What do you think?

Dora should follow her conscience and not what people think she should do. You can never please all the people all the time.History will remember those that helped end the crisis and her name will figure prominently. For those reading ulterior motives in her actions, it is their business. What is important is that she now sleeps well without lexotan.

Agree, She just read the weather properly to position herself. I can bet

you she will remain in the cabinet and may in fact be in Goodluck's kitchen

cabinet. I have always believed that there is a lot of hype in this woman.

Dora is nothing but a crazy media attention seeker turned pure opportunist

I do not doubt Dora's intentions.

It is her zeal and sense of purpose that makes

her, but it is also the source of her weakness.

Her need to be involved perhaps led her to

accept a portfolio not suited to her ''talents''.

But we would be doing her a great disservice

if we criticise her in her current incarnation as

''tormentor in chief'' to the cabal. But for her memo,

Lord knows what form the drama would have evolved

into.

If she does have ulterior motives and is looking

to curry favour, I for one am not complaining. Having

Dora in any kind of substantive role certainly will not

hurt Nigeria.

She's the only person with integrity in the entire FEC. How come only her had the guts to call a spade a spade? She's for real. Wish she would become the president one day.
