She was indeed a distinguished leader in the civil rights movement. She helped break barriers by using education to empower our girls and fight for their rights through the Proactive Gender Initiatives she founded.

There’s no doubt that Uzoma’s courageous activism changed our nation’s trajectory in tremendous ways.

Our dear sister will certainly continue to be an inspiration to all of us at Concerned Nigerians  fighting for justice and equality.

May her memory be blessed.”
