Nigeria Produces Its First Female Military Pilot

Her name is Blessing Liman. The 25-year-old lady from Kaduna State made history by becoming Nigeria's first female military pilot, after completing the Direct Short Service Course 2010/11 Cadets of 325 Ground Training Group at the NAF Base, Kaduna. She was commissioned over the weekend by the Nigerian Air Force (NAF).

This is great! Even better that she is from the north!

More Nigerians need to travel out of Lagos wallahi. The north is not a freaking zoo full of jungle animals. From her name, she is Christian. There are lots of Christians in adamawa, borno and plateau especially.
