On the flip side, it breaks my heart that your country failed to recognise the gem in you and provide you the same conducive platform. This would have been a win for the Nation Nigeria. It’s not your fault, it’s our loss! Cheers to bigger wins ma’am!
Njideka Anyanwu; Very brilliant officer..very proud of her. She was my schoolmate in university of Port Harcourt where she also excelled in her undergraduate studies. Her son is also in the force with her. Keep pushing Hetty.
Andy Joseph Nwabudike; Yeah, you are right Ojarikre, she is going places and celebrating her is not enough. Thanks my dear for this elevation.
