‘Marriage is not the definitive qualifier for women’- HH Zaynab Otiti-Obanor

Ooni of Ife’s ex-wife Zaynab Otiti-Obanor, who shared a photo of the result of her pursuit for the advancement of relations between the Arab world and Africa, was asked by a follower whose platform she’s using to get such deals.

However, Zaynab, who is in the business of providing aid for women & children across the world, reacted to the comment, saying the platform was founded by her, and contrary to popular opinion, marriage is not the definitive qualifier of women because women have their own voice and agenda.

Here’s their exchange below;

It's been a busy month for Queen Zaynab as she pursues global support for the advancement of relations between the Arab world and Africa. Last week, the Government of Lebanon officially joined to support her organization- The Arab-African Economic Development Initiative. The Queen officially began her partnership with Lebanon through the Governor of Beirut, Justice Ziad Chebib. During her visit to Beirut last week,  they discussed ways to established initiatives of culture meet culture to improve economic growth. With a large community  of Lebanese citizens residing in Nigeria and the long history shared it is imperative to create sustainable initiatives to improve relations and create jobs. The Middle East and Africa have a long and sometimes sordid history that hasn't quite worked to a reasonable advantage of both parties. This partnership will create new economic opportunities that both continents can explore through cultural exchanges, breaking of social barriers and business opportunities for African citizens. More details on job availability to be announced shortly. #HHZaynab #QueenZaynab #SDGs #jobcreation #Africatotheworld –

hhzaynab@its frankiiieee “Thank you for asking. The platform is that of my own accord. An organization founded by me.

Contrary to popular opinion, marriage is not the definitive qualifier of women. We have our voice and our own agendas and it has always been my mission to make this world a better place than I found it. My accomplishments speak for themselves.
