Betty Irabor took to Instagram to share her encounter with the Obi of Onitsha, His Majesty Igwe Nnaemeka Alfred Ugochukwu Achebe during a meeting at the African Women on Board.
According to the media personality, after she introduced herself as Soni Irabor’s wife, they started a conversation.
She said she got corrected by the Obi of Onitsha who told her to introduce herself as “Betty Irabor” next time instead of the wife of somebody because she is a strong woman in her own right.
She wrote “THE IGWE AND I
“ME… Good evening IGWE. I am Soni Irabor’s wife.
“ME.. surprised. Oh you know me, YOUR MAJESTY?
“Him..OF COURSE. But why are you introducing yourself as Soni’s wife when you could just have said I AM BETTY IRABOR?
“Isn’t that what this conference is all about?
“ME.. I was sure you would know my husband even if you didn’t know me, it makes it less awkward for me sometimes, especially when I am greeting royals like you…
“HIM.. You are a strong woman in your own right. Next time, just say I AM BETTY IRABOR.( He smiled)
“I DIDN’T EXPECT THAT AT ALL but I loved it.
“DAALU, Thank you. IGWE NNAEMEKA ALFRED ACHEBE…with men like His MAJESTY supporting us, our job as women seeking more leadership roles is definitely going to be made much easier.”
