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 would nationalise the oil. Take it away from the foreign companies so it now belongs to the Nigerian government. This would boost the economy of Nigeria.
What is the most annoying thing you have heard people say about women in Nigeria?
That we only go out with money-bags or that the man has to pay for everything.
What is the one most important thing about being a woman that you would want your daughter to know?
Women are powerful. We rule the world. There is nothing a woman cannot aspire to be.
Do you believe in gender equality? Why or Why not?
I do not believe men and women are treated equally (though I think we should be). There’s still a pay difference for men and women with men being paid more, for the same job, and there’s a glass ceiling where in certain industries, a woman cannot exceed.
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 would prefer to retain the mind of a 30 year old. I love reading and writing and would be devastated if that was taken away from me due to senility.
What is your opinion of the Nigerian woman?
Very resourceful. I have seen Nigerian women cook a pot of soup with only a few pieces of leaves. How do they do that?
If you could wake up tomorrow having gained one special quality or ability, what would it be?
The ability to understand and speak every language on earth. Wow!!
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?
I would love to know my exact purpose on earth so I won’t be wasting time. Jesus knew His. John the Baptist knew his. Paul knew his. I would love to know mine.
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?
My books. All my books. I love reading.
If you don’t have to worry about making money, what would you do all day?
Reading and writing.
If you could go back in time, what year would you travel to? What happened that year?
- I gave my life to Jesus. Even though I was quite young, I understood what I was doing. Never looked back.
How do you think your friends would describe you?
I tend to speak without thinking so most of them would describe me as ‘rude’.
Would you like to be famous? In what way?
I would love to be known as a great Bible teacher.
Is there something that you’ve dreamt of doing for a long time? Why haven’t you done it?
I would love to upload some of my teachings on to YouTube. It’s in the pipeline.
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?
I get grumpy when I’ve not had a good night’s sleep so I would pass on the nightmares. Not even extraordinary wealth could tempt me. I need my beauty sleep.
