Sally Mbanefo takes back seat
Since her removal from office late last year, former Nigerian Tourism Development Corporation (NTDC) director general, Sally Mbanefo, has been nowhere to be seen on the social scene, leaving many wondering what could have happened to the woman, whose beautiful face was a regular fixture at A-list events during her tenure as the head of the country’s apex tourism agency.
Indeed, as head of the organisation, Sally travelled the length and breadth of the country looking for ways to profitably tap the nation’s abundant tourism potentials.
Though her tenure wasn’t free of controversies, one thing that cannot be denied was her passion for the job. She even made a statement by regularly turning out in stylish dresses and headwear designed with the national colours of green-white-green.
The University of Lagos Law graduate, who has had stints in the banking, manufacturing and oil and gas sectors, the fair-skinned woman has withdrawn into her cocoon since her removal.
There are indications that she has since returned to the banking industry, which was her last port of call before she was appointed to head the tourism board.
