Co-founded of the Bring Back Our Girls is celebrating her mother after she turned 75-years-old today in grand style.
The chartered accountant who served as Minister of Solid Minerals and Minister of Education during the second-term presidency of former President Olusegun Obasanjo tweeted some sweet words for her mother whom she said she idolized for bringing her and her siblings up to believe in themselves at all times.
The co-founder of Transparency International who served as one of the pioneer directors of the global anti-corruption body based in Berlin, Germany, has been at logger heads with the Federal Government following the abduction of more than 200 female students of the Government Girls Secondary School, Chibok, Borno State in 2014.
She and her group have been in the forefront of pressurizing the government to expedite action to rescue the girls many of whom are still in the captivity of the dreaded Boko Haram insurgents.
