Not trying to be sentimental... Aisha Buhari as of today is the most influential woman in Nigeria. Except the meaning of influential has changed. The list is based on someone's opinion so I am not going to pick any issue with the list..

Omotola and Genevieve are 100x more influential than the number 1 on the list if you ask me. They command more respect in Nigeria and the world at large. Imagine their fan base. Omotola was listed in TIMES 100 most influential people in the world. Do you know what that means?

Ovoko grin

My own lis tho;

1. Aisha Buhari
2. Ngozi O. Iwela
3. Folorunsho Alakija
4. Dolapo Osinbajo
5. Patience Jonathan
6. Toyin Saraki
7. Oby Ezekwezili
8. Turai Yaradua
9. Amina Mohammed
10. Oluremi Tinubu...

If I want to have a list of 100 women, then, I can accommodate this ovoko's list in the remaining half of 100. This women on my list represent women that can influence good decision to change the fortune of this country.

You don't have to agree with me though.
