Why I’m donating my eyes to the blind – Dakore Akande, actress

Nollywood diva, Dakore Akande who has striven to maintain a controversy-free career in Nollywood, has added more accolades to herself.

The mother of two has proven that she ‘slays for a cause’, as she is willing to donate her eyes to the blind when she breathes her last. “I was officially unveiled as the ambassador for the Eye Bank of Nigeria with the aim of sensitizing the public about the need for cornea donors to help those with reversible blindness. I pledged my cornea that day and what that means is when I leave this earth, I’ll willingly donate my cornea to help give the gift of sight especially as I would no longer be needing it,” she said.
