  • I have read her profile, nothing special about her about her credentials apart being the wife a General & quick fix promotion. This a terrible thing as I can see being groomed for CBN governor. I feel sorry for all the hard working women with far more better credential inthe banking sector & in particular CBN. This is one of the things dat killed the public service wen mediocrity was introduced.
