Speaking on why Professor Dora Akunyili is on the list of awardees, Rita hinted that “we are  making her Minister of the Year because she was the only minister that spoke boldly at the  Federal Executive Council meeting that the decision makers should allow the law to take its  right course as the decision to let our present President take over was taken early this  year.”
