THE LEGAL DRAMA : FOLANKE SOLANKE

Mrs. Folanke Solanke remains a great influence in my life. She is part of the Nigerian story and a woman of many firsts. A dear friend tagged me to this post on Facebook. And once again I was reminded of the reason I hold the first female SAN in high esteem. She cleared the path for women like me. Women like you. This may be the best thing you’ll read today. After all, there’s really nothing to celebrate about Nigeria. Read and Enjoy. Continue reading “THE LEGAL DRAMA : FOLANKE SOLANKE”

SOJOURNER TRUTH

I never determined to do anything and failed – SOJOURNER TRUTH. (Most essential statement about her life)

Beautiful People!

I’ve been reading THREE books at the same time. I started with a soft copy of AND THE MOUNTAINS ECHOED but then NEPA took their light for four good days and I was extremely bored, so I went to the bookshelf and found this SOJOURNER TRUTH and since it was a small read, I finished on time and started LOTTERY WINNER by MARY HIGGINS CLARK.
