Nigerian Woman Promoted To Commander In US Navy by Sirdan247(m): 9:47am On Jul 16, 2021
A Nigerian woman, Hetty Ofughara, has excelled at her chosen career in the United States of America and recently earned herself a promotion in the US Navy.

The United States Navy promoted Ofughara, who is from Niger Delta, to the status of commander.

A LinkedIn user, Aghogho Ojakire posted the news on his page.

”A big congratulation to a Nigerian woman making us proud.

This is Hetty Ofughara, from Uvwie Delta State who recently got promoted to Commander of the US Navy.

Congratulations Hetty.

Let’s celebrate her.” he wrote.

She replied: ”Awwwww, thank you so much. I am humbled and eternally grateful.”

Nigerians celebrated with her on the giant stride.

Tola (Bhadmus) Arowa; wrote; Congratulations ma’am. It’s heartwarming to see you shattering ceilings and redefining standards.

On the flip side, it breaks my heart that your country failed to recognise the gem in you and provide you the same conducive platform. This would have been a win for the Nation Nigeria. It’s not your fault, it’s our loss! Cheers to bigger wins ma’am!

Njideka Anyanwu; Very brilliant officer..very proud of her. She was my schoolmate in university of Port Harcourt where she also excelled in her undergraduate studies. Her son is also in the force with her. Keep pushing Hetty.
Andy Joseph Nwabudike; Yeah, you are right Ojarikre, she is going places and celebrating her is not enough. Thanks my dear for this elevation.

Pamela Udoka; Congratulations! We are proud of you.
