In an era where looeted money is hidden in soakaways and abandoned buildings by corrupt public officials, a discovery has been mande of 2 boxes full of treasures belonging to the late NAFDAC boss an Igbo woman-of-calibre Dora Akunyili.
But these boxes contained, not looted money, but 110 awards given to Dora Akunyili for being forthright and not being corrupt. These previoulsy unknown 110 hidden awards add to the 820 known awards we previously know she got.
Dora, you are a true Ada Ndi Igbo. To see the awards, click this link: http://www.nairaland.com/3259323/akunyilis-family-discovers-110-awards
On Nairaland a user, LaRochelle, said this about Ngozi Okonjo Iwealla on her 37th wedding anniversary:
This woman isn’t exactly my role model but there are some things I admire about her (and her husband).
First, she is an intelligent woman (it doesn’t matter if you agree or not).
Second, she and her husband have been together for thirty-seven good years.
Third, she (and her husband) gave their children the best of education. I read one time all of them attended Harvard. I know you know that Harvard’s acceptance rate is quite low…which brings me to the fourth point.
Fourth, she passed on her good brains to her children (I mean, judging by the Harvard thing-y).
Happy 37th anniversary, ma’am. I wish you and your husband more happy years together.
Guiness World Records has recognised Igbo and Nigerian football star, Harrison Chinedu as the first man to travel the farthest distance while balancing a football on his head.
The Cambodia-based footballer set the record after walking a total distance of 48.08km from the Redeemed Christian Church of God camp on the Lagos-Ibadan Expressway to the National Stadium in Surulere, Lagos, on March 6.
The 19-year-old Igbo star has broken into City’s first team this season and scored 12 impressive goals. Also, because of the speed of his goals he has been dubbed the most deadly striker in the English Premier League.
So, it was not surprising but also surprising that British fans were livid with England Coach Roy Hodgson for not including the Igbo striker in the English Team for Europe. See some fan comments below.
Unknown to them, Nigeria has already snatched the services of the phenomenal playmaker.
He has already played twice for the senior national team the Super Eagles, and according to Fifa, once a player plays for a national team, he can no longer be selected by another country.
So, sorry England. This Igbo star is taken. If you want to snatch the next Austin Jay Jay Okocha, Kanu or Iheanacho, you had better send football scouts to Igbo villages and catch them young, before Nigeria snatches them from your grasp.
