Nigeria, Women

“It is not uncommon in Nigeria for civil servants to go unpaid for several months as the money is pocketed by those higher up. Even today, that makes her livid. “How can you sleep at night knowing an employee who did not get paid cannot take his sick child to hospital? I cannot understand those people,”
Funke Opeke, on an area of Nigeria’s corrupt practises.

Check out – if you missed it on Al Jazeera – what big changes a single person can make to the lives of many even within the stiffling business environment that Nigeria presents, what a woman who went to NITEL and shucked it to found a very successful telcoms co., and find out why Asue Ighodalo, a top-flight attorney who speaks the language of the rarefied world of capital markets, M&A, et cetera describes Ms. Opeke as “the most understated businesswoman you’ll ever meet.”
