Equally proud and inspired, we are set to announce the first Treasure (Online) Woman of the year, 2016!
It is often said that age is merely a number. The power to influence our circumstances and environment resides in each individual who is motivated by higher ideals.
In a fast-paced, age-phobic, fickle-minded and patriarchal world, our initial selections (all over 50) for the most outstanding woman in 2016 Nigeria did not come easy. While picking the male version was fairly straightforward, not so for the womenfolk (no pun intended)!
We were faced with three formidable candidates:
Committed advocate of public responsibility, lightning rod of the Bring-Back-Our-Girls crusade, former minister of education and unrepentant intellectual – Dr. Obiageli Ezekwesili.
The fast rising empress of pacesetting entertainment dynasty, relentlessly burgeoning media operator, financier of imaginative filmic enterprises and more besides – Mosunmola ‘Mo’ Abudu.
Inimitable inspiration, national honour’s holder, matchless thespian, pioneering force in modern Nigerian dramaturgy, life coach and a glistering motivator of millions of African youths – Ajoke Silva Jacobs.
So, who should represent the primus inter pares amongst our formidable women? Who is worthy of the toga….for 2016?
