Late Akunyili was born in 1949, and got his MBBS degree as a medical doctor in 1977 from the University of Nigeria Nsukka.
“On 26th of July 2001, Chike floated St. Leo’s Hospital, Enugu where he had the autonomous opportunity to touch the lives;”
“He made St. Leo’s Hospital a family, an extension of his home and an expression of his true self; he was not just a Chief Medical Doctor, CMD, he was a father, a counselor, a healer, a philanthropist, a friend and a true epitome of humility,” says his children.
To honor their philanthropic father, they (his children) organized free medicals a year after his death.
