Okowa

“Insecure people put others down to raise themselves up.”

No one can identify with the quote like the woman especially with the untoward attention she has been getting in recent times.

Selfless in giving back to the needy via her health-focused foundation 05 Initiative, the woman has come under serious attacks over a grant given to her foundation by a United States-based non-profit organisation, the Initiative for Global Development.

Indeed, not everyone is happy with a good project, as talks of the grant put at N3.5 billion continues to reverberate like a drum of war.

The glee on the face of Ibidun Ighodalo is a hard-earned one.

For over 13 years, the woman has fought for what she has become.

Unlike many who dated their man and smiled as they walked the aisle to matrimonial bliss, the case of the founder of the Ibidun Ighodalo Foundation was quite different, falling in love with a man in the heat of a marital imbalance from his first marriage.
