Today is the birthday of a special woman. She’s the one I call my Big Sis.
She’s got one of the keenest and most analytical minds God has bestowed on anyone anywhere.
As bold as a lion and straight as a pin, she’s brutally frank on issues when she really gets going.
She’s been a blessing to Nigerian sports even though not many realize or care to admit it.
She has worked openly and behind the scenes to reposition our sports.
But it would be missing the essence of this brilliant woman to circumscribe her reach and influence to sports alone.
In addition to her interventions in sports, she’s been actively involved with offering alternative strategies to national economic development through her membership of the National Economic Summit Group(NESG).
Like my Oga, Godwin Dudu-orumen who I celebrated here last week, she brooks no nonsense from little minds who leave the substance and chase the shadow.
She is 60 years old today even though she looks nowhere near that age. Well, I guess its because unlike most people, she “travels” light without any needless baggage.
With Nkechi Obi , what you see is what you get-no pretensions, no shady dealings and no double talk.
My dear friends, please join me in celebrating this beautiful sister of mine as she “finds”diamond.
