On what she finds challenging in her years of practice she says: “What I find very challenging is the issue of Insurgency in Northeast Nigeria especially in my state Borno, which is taking longer than necessary. However, thanks to the effort of the present administration for the relative peace, release of people in captivity, reconstruction, rehabilitation and resettlement of ravaged communities as well as boosting Nigeria Military”.
