In her acceptance speech, Dr Okonjo-Iweala said;
"I am delighted and honored to have been picked as African Finance Minister of the Year 2014. Africa has come a long way from decades of economic stagnation to steady growth that has seen the continent make a huge leap for the better. In Nigeria, we are marching on. The building blocks for a greater future are being laid. I want to thank you for this recognition and I want to thank my President, Dr. Goodluck Ebele Jonathan for his constant support and my team at home, without which the job would have been impossible. Finally, I encourage every one of us to participate in the growth and development of our countries and our continent. Together, we will make it."

All of u feeling bad for linda ikeji, u see how conniving, and cunning she is?? Still can't believe she put out that private chat and tried to divert people's attention from the main issue (plagiarism) to some nonsense bullshit just to save face...porous minded folks will eat it up like the usual bs she feeds them. I used to be indifferent about her but what she did today really disgusted me. That chat purely showed linda ignoring a guy who helped make her....she only excitedly responded to him recently because she was in deep shit and was hoping that the guy will save her ass. Now she's accusing him of obsession, but didn't do so when he was helping her build her brand. Then she claimed she never saw his messages, but she never tried herself to reach out to a guy that helped her soo much either? This guy felt so bad in the chat for outing her even tho he had to because linda ignored him and on top of that was also stealing his materials...and kept ignoring him even after he tried many times to reach out...who would'nt react the same. Whomever falls for this woman's manipulative tactics has uburu okuko i swear. Not surprised tho, this is the same way fake pastors and politicians control u people in naija...they know the right buttons to push on u gullible folks! Sickening.

I hope its not a 'backdoor arrangement'; cos Nigeria is still reeling in poverty and, the crisis in social and economic sectors are soaring. Rwanda and Kenya in spite of very poor revenues have experienced phenomenal progress in infrastructure and steady growth...
