Ladi Kwali, Nigeria’s renowned potter, has been the only woman on the N20 note in Nigeria’s 59-year history but Priscilla’s latest feat is another history made.
She is the first female director of currency in the history of CBN, and her signature has been appended on the naira notes, starting from the N1000 naira.
