    Wow , her singing for every government after the other has paid off! So now as usual the shallow youth start to congratulate. I feel so sorry for my generation! Didn’t this lady sing abacha’s praises? We forget so soon…our shallow love for wealth. Lost generation.

      My dear, congratulations are in order for anybody who achieves something new and good irrespective of whether we agree with the achievement or not. I am not a shallow youth, pls don’t feel sorry for me or yourself. I only hope she puts the opportunity to good use by actually developing the Nigerian women and not use it solely as a stepping stone to bigger political appointments while neglecting her duties.

      Abi? As long as something comes out of it , it is good she? What a sick people! So a robber should be congratulated when he becomes a local chairman after all he has achieved something unbelievable great that has wiped off his sins for posterity sake. Dosent the fat end justify the means? What a society! Smh! And you people want change and a civil society? You are far from help with this mindset.
      Congrats oh madam Onyeka the praise singer of dictators that have terrorized NIGERIANS and all politicians that have never served the country well . Of course your own rewarded tenure will be different and celebrated ,dosent apple fall far from its tree? Sic

    Sorry o but is the NCWD not a FG parastatal? And if yes, should the ED position not be for career civil servants? or is my thinking wrong? Someone clarify please.

    All the same congrats to Onyeka.

      Abacha died in ’98, I’m sure she would have said something by now. Yes?

    Singing for government and electioneering has finally paid off. Just make sure you do tangible things for posterity sake, not chop and clean mouth.

    this woman tho. i’m one of the few who don’t celebrate her or like her. she’s been romancing politicians and politics for a while now. good luck to her.

    Like someone said, if it was one random hadiza woman or
    aishatu or maryam no one will bat an eyelid or question if the
    person is a career civil servant or anything. That’s Why these
    people always feel entitled all the time. Since I was a toddler
    this same Onyeka has been singing national songs, at the expense of
    selling records. I don’t see what’s wrong in her appointment. I
    join others to pray that she utilizes this position optimally and
    better the lot of Nigerian women.
