This ones are the ones writing our name in the good book of the world and not those nincompoops that will be dragging our name in the sand of time.
Kudos to her and may she continue flagging our flag high over there.

In as much as I av issue with what the OP said, my problem with ur post is why tag him igbo? Mehn, do some of u dream and wake up with the name igbo?

Mehn tribalism has finished some people here o. If truly u av achieved a lot in life, that means u should be more exposed. Exposure do cure tribalism. So why is yours not?

U could av attacked the person who made the comment without dragging the entire igbos into this.. And why u think he is igbo still beats my imagination.

I mean, a successful person naturally kills off tribalism beacus success knows no tribe.

IPOB disagree with you

You are all acting like Saint now, like we don't know how you usually bash Yoruba when you achieve something on Nairaland

She is in military uniform and with her head scarf, yet Christians are pushing Nigerian government to barn head scarfs in schools. Even Nigeria legal body refused to initiate a Muslim with a head scarf. Scallywags

That's the funny thing I hear people spill out. Fact that they bear Nigerians names doesn't mean they are Nigerians. Their ancestors and forefathers might be but they were born ,bred and hold an American citizenship. So the best you can say is american woman/man with Nigerian background etc grin . You can't even be a foreigner and enlist in the U.S military. Even Hakeem Oluseyi the NASA scientist someone was arguing with me he was a Nigerian I was like wtf grin. Hakeem Oluseyi has never even stepped his foot on Africa before.
I know some Nigerian born, bred and educated people in US military. Majors and at least one Lt. Col. Not born in US. As far back as ten years ago. That they now hold US citizenship doesn't mean they are no more Nigerians.

The Northerners never brought Islam to Yoruba, Yoruba got into Islam through trading with other African Empire especially Mali

Good job.

A successful woman will always be a pride to any responsible negroe who likes progress. Not all those 'choose your job or your marriage' type of useless 'horsebands'.

From ur comments, seems u are still very remote. U take this nairaland too serious.

May God heal u of tribalism. I also hope u aren't among those who bash whites when they insult black race. Lol

But do you know you can't hold dual citizenship and enlist in the us military. You have to swear an allegiance to one and you'll be under strict quarantine for the rest of your life.

A Nigerian woman has been commissioned as a Second Lieutenant of the United States Army

- The woman was celebrated for her accomplishments by her husband on social media

A Nigerian woman identified as Oluwatobi Al-Bakare has proved that barriers can be broken anywhere as she becomes a Second Lieutenant of the United States Army. The woman was commissioned on Thursday, May 16.

Legit.ng came across her success story after it was shared on Twitter by her husband, Olatunde Bakare.

Olatunde Bakare had taken to Twitter to celebrate his beautiful wife for her accomplishment at the United States Army.

The husband shared photos of his wife dressed in her official army uniform as she gets commissioned at the student center ballroom A in Bowie State University in George's County, Maryland.

This is good,but I don't like the way our people are joining foreign military service, on the other she could be useful for our intelligence agency NIA take note,Oluwatobi Al bakare could be an asset.
