Celebrating Strong Single women or mothers!
Wow, Do I not just love looking through this list? Yes, I love strong, Independent women! They are rich, powerful and a good number of them are drop-dead gorgeous. Those that are not super-rich in their own rights have fathers who have tons of money to have any man come running after them.
1. Senator Gbemisola Saraki
If her wishes have been well served by God, this ravishingly beautiful woman, who was a two-term senator at the National Assembly would have been the current governor of Kwara state. After her marriage to one Segun Fowora crashed some years ago, the super-politician has still remained single. The reasons are best known to her.
Though she is a mother of three, the Senator is a dead ringer to any beauty queen any day. She has everything a man could need in abundance. She was born into wealth and she has done so well for herself that her achievements could compete with that of any man.
Born about four decades ago, Saraki attended Cheltenham Ladies’ College, London and University of Sussex , where she obtained a Bachelor of Science degree in Economics. Upon returning to Nigeria , she worked in the banking sector before her foray into politics.
2. Ms Arunma Oteh
Ms Arunma Oteh who is of Nigerian/British nationality might have been described as the “Iron Lady” of Nigeria’s Securities and Exchange Commission, for her no-nonsense approach to the job of policing Nigeria’s financial business world but nobody would argue she is a damsel that could disarm any man.
Whether her status as a single woman will remain for long remains to be seen but going by her status and achievements, she has more than enough to bring into any marriage and of course that wedding, low-key or otherwise will surely be a society affair.
3. Deola Sagoe
Deola Sagoe, daughter of Chief Michael Adeojo, Chairman of Toyota Nigeria Limited, is a woman who was born into money but has carved a niche for herself as a haute couture fashion designer who has rocked the country and caught the eye of the international fashion community.
Friends of Deola have said she is married to her job and her creative mind is working 24/7 to have time for any marriage. She broke through in her career when she was appointed to represent Nigeria in an international campaign organized by the United Nations World Food Programme. The campaign, titled “Catwalk the World: Fashion for Food.”, became the launching pad that propelled her into international reckoning.
3. Funke Adedoyin
Princess Funke Adedoyin, the daughter of frontline industrialist, Chief Samuel Adedoyin of Doyin Group of Companies, has served the nation two times as a minister in the administration of former President Olusegun Obasanjo between 1999 and 2007.
However, she doesn’t like to be asked when she will get married. All she said is that she is happy in a relationship, saying “I think that you cannot have it all in life but you can have it all at the same time.
4. Edith Jibunoh
Edith Jibunoh is your modern day super successful woman who has come clean and good from playing hard and square on the field populated by men. The daughter of Dr. Newton Jibunoh, the popular adventurer and explorer has worked in the MDG Office of the Nigerian Presidency and the World Bank, where she worked on East Asian countries and External Affairs at the Bank’s UN office.
5. Biola Okoya
Chic, sophisticated and very rich, Biola Okoya, one of the most celebrated daughters of business mogul and billionaire, Chief Rasaq Okoya of Eleganza Group of Companies, has not even come close to contemplating marriage after her marriage attempt with Akinwande Johnson failed.
Once a hot item on the social scene, she has recoiled into a quiet life, setting adrift the rumour that all is not rosy between her and her billionaire father, who is obviously taken in with his last wife, Shade.
6. Oyin Adenuga
If there is such a thing as the most eligible single girl in town, Oyin Adenuga’s name would sure be on top of the list. The beautiful daughter of the ‘big boss’, Dr. Mike Adenuga of Globacom, has everything going for her except having the right man to fit his missing rib. For money, she has no care in the world as she could have anything money can buy.
For education, she is supremely schooled, having graduated from the prestigious University of Maryland, Baltimore County with a Bachelor’s degree in Sociology at 19. After working with her father’s establishments for years, she is now in business of fashion retailing for herself, though she operates her business from Atlanta Georgia.
7. Tabitha Kwajafa
Not much is known about Tabitha, the daughter of Fulani Kwajafa, former boss of National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, NDLEA, but she is beautiful and rich. She runs a boutique, AMEN 2 in Abuja. The boutique is strictly for the high and mighty.
8. Dr. Fatima Atiku Abubakar
Dr. Fatima Atiku Abubakar is the first child of Hajiya Titi Atiku Abubakar for Alhaji Atiku Abubakar, Turakin Adamawa and former Vice President of Nigeria. She is a medical doctor who prefers a quiet life away from social glare.
9. Orie Kalu
Orie Kalu is a beautiful woman who would surely attract a second look. But this daughter of former Chairman of Union Bank of Nigeria, Elder K.U. Kalu hasn’t been able to get tied to any man for keeps.
10. Gloria and Elvina Ibru
Gloria and Elvina Ibru are daughters of Olorogun Michael and Cecilia Ibru. To say the girls are rich is an understatement. Though both babes are on the big side , they are certainly beautiful, taking their good looks after their beautiful mother.
11. Daphne Dafinone
Daphne Dafinone, daughter of legendary accountant and billionaire, Chief David Dafinone, is a Fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales, and Institute of Chartered Accountants of Nigeria. She trained with KPMG Peat Marwick Mcclintock, Chartered Accountants, United Kingdom, where she qualified, before joining Horwath Dafinone.
Unlike her sister, Joy Amazu (nee Dafinone) Daphne is yet to sign off her maiden name to a man of her choice. Recently, she was conferred with a chieftaincy title.
12. Mabruka Mai Deribe
She is the daughter of the stupendously rich Mai Deribe. A fashion designer for the upper class, her cute body has won her many admirers. She is still single and in a recent interview she said her ideal man must possess her late billionaire father’s qualities.
