Nigerian lawyer, Olufunke Akindolie conferred with MBE award

By Patricia Uyeh,

Nigerians at home and in diaspora were made proud after multi-award winning lawyer, Olufunke Abimbola-Akindolie was awarded the Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) by Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II, for her role in the diversification of the legal profession.

According to www.financal-style, Funke is a senior lawyer and leader for the world’s largest biotech. She is currently the most senior black lawyer working within the UK pharmaceutical industry and one of the most senior globally.

Funke has continued to distinguish herself excellently in her field. In 2015 alone, she won the Gender Role Model award (National Diversity Awards), Career Woman of the Year award (Women4Africa), Outstanding Woman in Professional Services award (Precious Awards) and Inspiring Member of the Year award (Inclusive Networks Awards). Then in 2016, she was awarded the 2016 Outstanding Diva and International Diva of Colour awards held in London.

Just recently, she got admitted as a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts, recognizing the positive impact and outstanding contributions that she has made to Britain.

  5. We are sooooo funny. The ONLY relation she has with Nigeria is her name. So, of what benefit to Nigeria? Did Nigeria invest in her? So where is the “proud.” I am happy for her on her personal achievement as an individual. Nigeria should start investing in her own and NOT try to “steal” another country show.
