Flash back

FI is still away at the Archbishop Tutu Leadership Programme (ATLP).
In the meantime, this is the interview she had with Mrs. Bolanle Ogunmola, a molue female conductor. Enjoy!

GOD....i officially LOOOOOVE Fumni...i dont think i really watched ur show in naij but hot damn...a sister dat can look dat FYNE, stilleto's in tow like WHAT!, hair, makeup and nails on point, and still relate in fluent pidgin with another woman about real issues and real life is the real deal!!! too often, we "overseas" nigerians only get swept up in the bright, shiny, festive naija, the christmas time naija, the celebrity knowing, name dropping, get-ur-swagger-on naija....we too easily forget the daily hustle and grind dat our people are facing, the struggle and our desperate need for change. For some reason dis interview touched me reallly really deeply...GIRL POWER mehn, we r all really not that different, from bus conductor to doctor, We all want the same things...to love and provide for our children, to be safe, and to be happy. Good job funmi...U are really a role model for me and inspiration to all...carry go! xxx

This lady is so resourceful she put her children through high school with her meager salary? Oh wow. Me thinks she is more qualified to handle the national treasury than the people we have there. She'll probably do a better job too
