The veteran Journalist has in a statement addressed a few things that went on as she tried to push on her advocacy for women on Facebook that led to her ban for a few days.
Read Her statement below:
After being initially banned for 30 days on Facebook, Zuck reduced it to 3 days as I’m a FB pioneer and veteran creator.
You flagged me for saying Igbo girls are less educated and Igbo female mentors like Oby, Ngozi and Linda should step up their game mentoring them teaching them how they actually made their fortune.
I have mentored one youth yearly since US/Canada days. @iamdonaldeke Nnamdi @official_mrnano and Uche are all bloggers I mentored. @officialblessingceo is a successful bizwoman who runs a relationship outfit in Enugu and her own Instagram show. Kingsley Chinedu Otalor (@Wealthofficial1)is my upcoming artist I’m launching alongside my son @richkjtmusic after Quarantine ends.
I go to Port Harcourt prison to distribute money and food to the IPOB boys who are innocent stuck behind bars. I have done my part with Igbo youth.
I promise as from today I will no longer talk about empowering Igbo female youth. My #KemitalksWomen series in anticipation of 2023 will stop here. To all young females in Nigeria, I thought I could reach out to u to stop being people’s servants and end prostitution, they turned it to Yoruba vs Igbo attacking me.
I don’t like to be referred to as Yoruba, rather a Nigerian🇳🇬 the reason why the Nigerian-American Community named me #IyaNaira®in 1995 in the USA🇺🇸. Special thanks to @official_mercyeke (#BBNaija) and @AzukaOgujuiba (Media room Hub) Blessing Okoro (Break or Make Up) public figures who I encourage to keep supporting their tribe females. Thanks for supporting my work on #IJCovid19 financially and believing highly of my work as a Journalist.
God Bless the Igbo nation. MAY YOUR DREAMS COME TRUE.
