Chief Opral Benson Named Honorary Liberian Consular To Nigeria

The Iya Oge of Lagos, Chief Mrs Opral Benson, 77, has been made the honorary Consular General of Nigeria to her country of birth, Liberia.

The proprietor of the Opral Benson Beauty Institute and widow of Nigeria's first minister of information, late TOS Benson, received an official latter on the 7th of August from the minister of foreign affairs.

The fashion Icon will operate from Lagos, which has been her base for many years, instead of moving to Abuja where most consuls are based.

Don't mind d haters of Jonathan who tries to show their ignorance n level of illiteracy in every gud thing. Imagine some1 saying Jonathan is trying to get favour from Yorubas. What a tribalistic idiot? It's obvious d person is clueless. Go get a life!
