I normally don’t like jumping on the chest-thumping train when a ‘Nigerian’ abroad excels ‘cause it feels “one kind”.
Appointment of 39 year-old MP Olukemi Badenoch as Children & Families Minister by Britain’s PM, Boris Johnson is an exception.
I am super doper proud of her👏🏾👏🏾 pic.twitter.com/jRg4DGhmTL
