      She’s a living example of the prayer, “Lord, please let my enemies live to see what new heights I will ascend to, while they watch in seething wrath”.

      It’s enough to almost make you want to tap into the anointing….. and watch and see, APC will surely be preparing to release another edition of things-Buhari-has-done-which-the-previous-administration-couldn’t as their indirect response to any hint of success emanating from za oza side.

    Shame on all those who were accusing her of corruption under Jonathan’s regime. There’s no way an organization like Twitter would give her this appointment if she was guilty as they would have done serious background check on her. The woman continues to make significant achievements internationally.
