First Female Governor in Nigeria, Dame Virgy Etiaba

President Muhammadu Buhari has congratulated former Governor of Anambra State, Dame Virgy Etiaba, who turned 77 on Nov. 11, 2019.

In a congratulatory message by his spokesman, Mr Femi Adesina, in Abuja on Monday, Buhari described Etiaba as “the good teacher who completely altered the history of Nigeria as first female governor between November 2006 and February 2007’’.

The President joined family members, friends, professional and political associates in celebrating the quintessential leader.

The President commended her disciplined and focused life, urging her to proudly reflect on her legacy of building the nation by imbuing the younger generation with sound moral and education values.
