It is with sadness that I pay this tribute to a great Amazon who has now gone to join the Saints Triumphant.

Dora was a great Nigerian patriot who never shied away from difficult National issues and always exhibited uncommon and unparalleled courage in contributing her voice whenever it mattered most.

She so much wanted a better Nigeria for all of us that only a few weeks ago we were all together as delegates at the on-going National Conference.

She had a hugely successful and unblemished career and made a huge difference wherever she found herself, giving many Nigerian women a strong voice to be proud of.

Dora opened the eyes of our women in fighting gender discrimination and injustice and for this; our women folk in particular will miss her greatly.

It is never about how long one lives but how well and just short of her sixtieth birthday, Dora has unarguable left this world too soon but Chike and the children should know that they are not alone at this moment of grief as millions of Nigerians are grieving with them.

While posterity will be kind to her, I now say to my sister ‘Ezigbo Nwannem Kachifo’.
