  5. Congrats to Sandie Okoro! Another Biafran woman on international stage. A number of Biafran men and women are leaders on international stage, yet in Nigeria, we are subjugated and told we can't lead. The illiterate Hausa-Fulani and Yoruba cowards continue to misrule the country. I can't remember any of them on international stage unless, those appointed by FG to serve her overseas.
