Right now it’s Rome. I went to Rome last year and I like the weather. It’s definitely someplace I would like to visit again.
I did not come to you by chance by a Nigerian author. She emphasized that certainly everything good will come in their time.
I love it hot, but not extremely hot.
I’m not very athletic but I love lawn tennis. That’s one thing I love to watch.
I love jumpsuits. I think they are dressy and classy.
I’m tempted to mention all my mentors. My mentors are great leaders in their own right and they include Joke Silva, Biola Alabi, Jumoke Ademowo, Funke Bucknor-Obruthe, Bolanle Austen Peters and Osai Alile.
I learnt it from my first boss and it’s “don’t wait until the metal is hot to strike.”
