    A brave enough woman and a brave Nigerian. She has a name and integrity in a line of study that’s not been considered as a good educational qualification.
    What you are able to do with that which you learned from the university tells a lot about your brain creativeness and mind capability and she has been able to show that in her profession.

    “Always dream and shoot higher than you know you can do. Do not bother just to be better than your contemporaries or predecessors. Try to be better than yourself.”
