The past few decades have marked very explosive transformations in the African commercial market, changes that afforded more and more women pedestals in otherwise male-dominated industries. Mrs Priscilla Ekwere-Eje has just earned herself a place in history maker records and our WCW pedestal of course.
Born and bred in Nigeria, Mrs Ekwere holds under her firmly secure belt, qualifications ranging from psychology to auditing and are the first woman to head the Central Bank of Nigeria’s currency operations. Not only does she influence strategic policies relevant to her department, her BOSS SIGNATURE will be gracing our thousand Naira notes… Signed, sealed, delivered much?!
This is a milestone that should be celebrated across all industries and being the ‘phoenix entertainers’ that we are, laying a carpet fit for excellence and shouting kudos is in order.
Africa Magic’s WCW run celebrated female barrier knockers and just like Linda Ikeji, Chimamanda Ngozi, Funke Akindele and other cross-industry peers, Mrs Ekwere don di it good. Congratulations ma!
