I can see 3 great Nigerian women on the list not two. It could even be more if you didn't rush to post this.

OK. What's their impact in Nigeria?
These are people who need to run public technology offices but this is Nigeria.

One thing common to them apart from being female is that they had foreign touch at a point in their career. If you truly want to be distinct in what you do, especially science and technology, abeg, strife to get educated internationally at any point in your career.Nigeria educational system will not get the best out of you.

I know some people will still argue about tribe, but I hope common sense tells them it's not about tribe, it's about being trained my a world class facility in places where they value education
