She will be the first woman and the first African to hold such lofty position.
But aside the significance which is not lost on many, one thing which stands Ngozi out from the crowd is her originality and authenticity.
Ngozi migrated to the US as a teenager to study at Havard.
She has lived significant part of her adult life in the US but she still speaks English with her original Nigerian tongue.
But Chidera who just migrated to Canada 3 month ago has suddenly developed a strange fake accent just to tell you that she has arrived.
Chidera was born in Nigeria and did her education in Nigeria. She traveling to Canada is the first time she has travelled outside Nigeria in her life but she now speaks English with a mix of fake accent.
I don’t know what to call this but I see people that behave this way as “Ndi eririri”
Congratulations to one of own Ngozi on this milestone and historic day.
Her story further illustrate why it is important to send the girl child to school.
A writer once said:
“When you educate a girl, you educate the whole community”
And nothing validates this quote than Ngozi’s remarkable story and her rise to the top.
Truly, the future is female.
