ΨЂÅƮ has tribe has to do with it. She is a respectable person who has taken Nigeria to the fore front. However, her name does not suggest anything to do with Hausa. She's Yoruba.

Congratulation,Bunmi,you are a great worthy Ambassador our great country Nigeria. GEJ should note this are the people that really merit our Nationtal Awards and not people of questionable character

Is Nigeria a junkyard?

These people are performing because they believe in justice and the system does not let them down by rewarding fraudsters. This is not the case in Nigeria. Our citizens who started very well and just have become disappointed seeing that their fraudulent colleagues were rewarded rather than getting punished. Follow me on www.160bits.com , thats where i talk about Nigeria.

Late Sunday Awoniyi's Daughter?

If this lady is the late Sunday Awoniyi's daughter I salute her with congratulation because there is only one genuine Awoniyi family in Nigeria and the son is the Deputy Governor of Logo State. However if she is not then she must 419. California should investigate her qualification. Some of this ngbati people in the south west (not KWARA OR KOGI) are not only treacherous like they did to us in Biafra but they are very dubious.

Congratulations

May the Lord guide ur heart in ur decision-making.

Congratulation Bunmi and I am

Congratulation. Hope we can learn from this back home since tribal n relicious divide has made us not 2 give the best pple chance 2 render service to the mother Land.
