Oby (as she’s fondly called) has lived all of her life in the public
domain, so it’s forgivable to think that you know who she is or all
days, Oby intersperses her work as one of the continent’s most sought
after consultants, with standing in the gap for the kidnapped Chibok schoolgirls who were abducted by terrorists in 2014–an advocacy that has since caught global attention.
advocacy group to draw global attention to the plight of all persons
who have been abducted by terrorists from Nigeria’s war ravaged
1. Oby adores her husband a lot:
husband is a critical part of my life. He is a very wise man. He has
this unbelievable wisdom, and I spend a lot of time listening to him. He
is my best friend. We basically have the strongest relationship which
helps to make me emotionally solid. He is my number one cheerleader”.
2. Oby’s Dad had such a massive influence on her:
“As a child, Dad and I would always discuss public affairs at every
opportunity and I became very conscious of social and political issues
beyond my age. The (civil) war had a deep effect on our family following
the loss of relatives and possessions. It left many families including
mine, scotched, but my father raised us to never allow anything to
enslave our souls.
he explained how poor governance was a reason for misery when we
returned to Lagos after the war, my little self would promise him that
“I would do something about poor governance when I grow up.” It turned
out that I would do something later to put me in a position where I
could address good governance, transparency, accountability and
3. Oby sees career as an assignment, not a job:
do not see career as a job; I see career as an assignment. My belief is
that my life is a continuum, and being a continuum means that I am not
here to do a job so that I can earn income, or so that I can have a good
life on earth. No. It is that my life was given to me by God so that I
can have a purposeful impact according to what he has created me to be”.
4. Values are important for her:
set very high standards for myself. For example, there is nothing
worthy enough to make me to negotiate away my values just as my father
see, in decent societies nobody cares about what you can competently
do, but they really care about your values. Your character is ultimately
the deal breaker in the pursuit of a career”.
5. She has a covenant with her husband:
people bonding in love can change the world because of collaboration
and cooperation. I have experienced the joy of marriage; the joy of that
partnership with my husband is based on deep, unreserved love for each
basically said to each other that no matter what our conditions might
be, we are in this together for life –meaning we are living for each
other. My husband lives for me and I live for my husband”.
6. You can’t even take God away from Oby:
is my greatest ally in life. There is no me without God. The greatest
essence in life is that you are created by One who has the purpose in
mind in that creation process and decided that there would be somebody
and her name would be Obiageli Ezekwesili.
decided to put certain things in her and she is supposed to do certain
things here on earth. And if she follows her way right, she will
definitely return to me and spend eternity with me. So, for me God is
everything. God is purposeful in creating everyone of us.
7. Oby didn’t look for jobs; jobs looked for Oby:
say to young people that I mentor that I am one of the very few people
that have never had to seek jobs in their lives. The only time that I
ever applied for one was when I applied to train as a Chartered
Accountant in Deloitte Touché & Akintola Williams
after my Master’s degree. All the other things or works I have done in
life, I was head-hunted for and persuaded on merit to accept them”.
8. Oby is a bookworm:
time is also when I read because when I read … I read different kinds
of books and there are some which when I am reading, you would think
that I was having the most fun time in my life as my emotions would
9. Ice cream and hot chocolate does it for Oby:
10. A good shower is central to Oby’s mood:
one health habit is to get a good shower. I love water, water does
magic to me. No, I don’t believe in magic. Water is a miracle for me.
Water for me is wealth.
two is a good sleep. Though I don’t get much as I should get, any time
that I get a good sleep, I wake up feeling like there is nothing I
L. A Prisoners Infect Themselves With Coronavirus To Get Early Release (VIDEO)
A group of silly L.A area prison inmates were very eager to contract the dreaded coronavirus .
They attempted this because they believed that would trigger their ticket out of prison.
According to the L.A. County Sheriff Alex Villanueva who made the startling revelation Monday, said about twenty-four (24) inmates at the Pitchess Detention Center in Castaic attempted (and somewhat succeeded, apparently) to infect themselves way back in mid-April 2020.
The Sheriff revealed that their department saw an increase in spike in confirmed cases out of nowhere.
He said that when they investigated, they found a high number of inmates living in one block of the prison appeared to be deliberately trying to infect each other with COVID-19 any way they could from behind bars.
When Alex Villanueva played the surveillance footages he and his team combed through carefully , and it showed several inmates hanging out in a common area and passing around what Alex described as a hot cup of water, as well as one face mask they’d each put on all in hopes of getting sympathy from a judge to spring them from the facility and let them go home.
But it turns out, their little ploy worked but, only halfway.
Villanueva reported that 21 of the inmates (out of 50 in the block) caught the ‘Coronavirus.
“What they won’t catch is a break” said the Sheriff.
