  1. Wow!! Nice.
    Congratulations to her.

  2. Congrats to her and congrats to Nigeria as a whole. This is one good news I have heard about Nigeria for the last four years

  3. Congratulations to this Nigerian woman (even though she may not know anything about Nigeria)
    But not Naija girl o

    1. She sure does. Her parents and siblings live here.

  4. I guess he is no longer a racist.

    1. He was never a racist

    2. Anon 00:19, say what?!? 😂 😂 😂 Her appointment is purely political so that despite Bori Johnson's brexit stance, it doesn't look like the UK is against immigrants...

  5. She looks like a dark version of Stella Damasus. Congrats my girl.

  6. This is the kind of inspiration the young ones should look up to

  7. Wow!39 and looking so young like a teen.Congrats Kemi.

  8. Wow! Now, this is a big deal!
    Congratulations young lady, may this Mark the beginning of much greater achievements in your chosen career path.
    I am super proud of you...

      It’s a call to service, not a call to come and chop as it obtains in Nigeria. Colonial mentality is making us celebrate this in the Nigerian media.

    2. Excuse me? What exactly is your point here?

    3. The point is this is no big deal in the UK. It’s just a job so nobody will be congratulating her on social media or on British blogs. Only close family and friends will wish her best of luck in her new position.

  9. 39 year old...and Baba Buhari is still stifling us with Granpas who should be heading to retirement homes by now....Cry my beloved country...
