If you were the President for one day and you have the power to fix one thing in Nigeria, what will it be and WHY?

What is your opinion of the Nigerian woman?
She is a woman who on the average does not even know her potentials and her capacity. Sometimes it seems like a double curse, being Nigerian and being a woman but I am glad that more women are realizing that there is more to life than being a wife and a mother.

The one person they all know they can count on anytime and who loves them all so much.
Would you like to be famous? In what way?
I am not really sure about fame, it is tiring already I prefer to be in the background.
Is there something that you’ve dreamt of doing for a long time? Why haven’t you done it?

Would you be willing to have horrible nightmares for a year if you would be rewarded with extraordinary wealth for a life time? Why or Why not?
