Wagner University Pasadena and Shiloh University adopted the book for a degree programme in women leadership.

Obii, who is a barrister and solicitor in Nigeria, had been earlier invited by Wagner University as a visiting lecturer in April 2021 in recognition of the award-winning book.

He was a panelist in 2018 at the student-driven Harvard Kennedy School of Government African Development Conference alongside the presidents of Ghana and Mali as well as Babatunde Fashola, Nigeria’s minister for power.

“Born to a respected educationist father, Mr Nathan Okeoma Ejiogu OON, and an entrepreneur mother, Madam Esther Ejiogu known for her genius mind, Obii is a chip off the old block who believes education is in her bloodline.

“She has served in the UK, Africa, and the USA for over two decades at leadership levels including media, executive member on the Christian Broadcasting Council of Great Britain, and as a member of Editorial Advisory Board of Sundiata Post.

“She currently serves on the leadership team of the global network A Company Of Women (ACW), catering to women leaders from the seven continents of the world.”
