“You are part of the original crop of workers who organically brewed the then fledgling TV3, and by dint of hard work, diligence and attention to detail, earned the trust and confidence of the Board to have placed you at the apogee of Media General, where you have acquitted yourself creditably as a CEO without compare. Congratulations !!!

“On this 6th Day of July, 2024, the Governing Council of YPYC on behalf of all members confer on you, our most respectable title: OVERALL FEMALE AFRICA ROLE MODEL PERSONALITY.”

We are not only honouring leaders but also training and raising generational thinkers and transformational leaders”.
