A woman of many parts, Dr. Ibukun Awosika who is the Chairman of First Bank of Nigeria, has brought forth the acting part of herself in order to pass across a message the world, in a soon-to-be-released movie titled Citation, by veteran actor Kunle Afolayan (Watch Video).
It was gathered that the soon-to-be-released movie addresses the ordeals female students encounter in Nigerian Universities and also focuses on propelling women to become great leaders. The First Bank boss acted the role of the university faculty dean, heading the senate hearing panel of a female postgraduate student (Moremi), played by Temi Otedola, who has been a victim of sexual harassment. Basking in the euphoria of the acting experience, on her official Instagram account, wrote:
“It is not in all situations, that we get a chance to do more than talk, about an issue that we are passionate about. The challenges that the female gender faces in her pursuit to be her best is multidimensional. When great institutions all come together, with an award-winning producer to take on a global issue, it seemed like a good risk worth taking as well as a great adventure into a field I had never experienced.
“Real respect for the players of the field. Don’t judge a man’s job until you have walked in his shoes. Nigeria is truly blessed to have so many great professionals. The potential for the sector to create jobs and add to economic growth is without question.
“I enjoyed the experience and I thank all those who made it fun for me! Wakanda forever! CITATION is a definite must-see!!”
