She answers our HOT questions below!
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?
I will call for the restructuring of the country and if that seem impossible, I will do a general overhaul of the Nigerian Civil Service because that is where corruption mostly stems from. I will also empower the youths more by placing them in notable positions because we are long due with the older ones. I will further make sure I establish a ground for Rotational Presidency (1 tenure) per president and not two terms anymore.
What is the most annoying thing you have heard people say about women in Nigeria?
The aspect of women belonging to the kitchen. There are so many of them on the list but whenever I come across this it gets me off completely.
What is the one most important thing about being a woman that you would want your daughter to know?
I will teach her to be self-willed, empower herself in whichever path she chooses. God willing, most importantly, that she can have a wonderful family, still live her dreams and accomplish them with or without a man.
Do you believe in gender equality? Why or Why not?
Yes I do, because God created us equal and in his eyes we are all equal.
If you were able to live to the age of 90 and retain either the mind or body of a 30-year old, which would you choose?
I will definitely choose the body of a 30year old
What is your opinion of the Nigerian woman?
She is a strong woman who has got the potentials and capacity inbuilt in her but needs the right environment and a good frame of mind to do what she deems impossible. There is so much than just been a wife and mum. God bless the Nigerian woman.
If you could wake up tomorrow having gained one special quality or ability, what would it be?
To predict unforeseen circumstances and be able to stop them or make it happen (laughs)
If a crystal ball could tell you the truth about yourself, your life, the future or
anything else, what would you want to know? Why or why not?
The only thing I would love to know is how and when we can end terror and violence around the world, most especially in Nigeria.
Your house, containing everything you own, catches fire. After saving your loved
ones, you have time to safely make a final dash to save any one item What would it be? Why?
Funny it will be my phone, because it contains me and virtually everything I do. Surprisingly I use my phone for everything, business, academics, name it.
If you don’t have to worry about making money, what would you do all day?
I will sleep, eat and see movies.
If you could go back in time, what year would you travel to? What happened that year?
2012, when I blew the chances of staying back and becoming a magistrate in my state but left the shores of the country in furtherance of my education.
How do you think your friends would describe you?
Witty, fun loving, daring, and someone who is never scared to face challenges no matter how they come.
Would you like to be famous? In what way?
Yes, business wise and politically if it pleases God
Is there something that you’ve dreamed of doing for a long time? Why haven’t you done it?
Yes,Traveling to like 3 countries in a year which is among my wish lists but for time and resources
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?
Yes I would. Nightmares happen while we sleep and we still get to wake up to reality, so I will grab all the wealth for it.
