She hinted us on what inspired her love for fashion and branding, ” I love fashion right from my teenager, to the extent that I replaced to study Law for Fashion at the OPEN University. Infact, I have passion for it since I was a teenager, my late aunt was a sowing mistress to the extent that I used to see her after school hours, to see how she was doing it.

 

 

After her Primary and secondary schools education, she worked at Neraga Fashion House, Awka to upgrade herself and later relocated to Lagos, to join Ginani Fashion House,
she established herself professionally in 2015.

Sharing her challenges with us, Roseline said ” it has not been easy, even up till now,we still face some challenges on how to manage some customers, because they are not patient enough, if I see that I’m not able to meet up with the day I give them to pick up their works, I will call them to reschedule the day, and if the client can’t be patient enough, I will have to work at night to avoid disappointment”.
Other challenges she is facing includes taking measurements of her clients in diasporas, according to her, her clients abroad will just take measurements and sent to her, and after working with it, and it’s not accurate, she will need to call them on video call to take the measurements on video again and be sure of their accuracy.” Customers satisfaction is our watchword…to meet up with clients date, to avoid disappointment and to also make our clients happy, we work overnight but normally, we work 24/7 because we have numerous staff that do shifting on a daily basis” .

For branding, a client approached her if she could sew school uniforms, and she noticed at a point that after sowing, she needed to do branding, which she normally sublet, until when she got a contract from NACA to produce 2,000 pieces of reflective jackets, she took the step to buy the monogramming machines for mass productions and the rest is history.

Her hobby is to create unique designs, while her mentor in the fashion lines is Vid James.

Rose Unique Fashion also deals in sales of local and foreign fabrics.

On her marital life, Roseline met her hubby in Lagos, ” I met my husband in Lagos when I needed something somewhere and he ended up directing me on how to go about what I needed to do and from there, one thing led to another, and today we are happily married with kids to the glory of God”.

However, Roseline described her husband as the pillar of her business, ” My husband is very supportive to my business, he supports me financially and morally”.

Meanwhile, Roseline Okonkwo narrated to us that life has not been fair to her just like every other persons, as she lost her father at a very tender age, and has to struggle all byself to become somebody in life. “At my teenage years, I have lived in many places and worked as maid in some places to keep body and souls together, but glory be to God, that saw me through this hardship periods.

On her best meals, she likes rice and stew.

She appreciates her clients for believing in her for their patronage, and referral. She promised not to disappoint them.

FRN vs Ali Bello: Court Shifts trial till March 14, warns EFCC to be diligent in prosecution

 

The Court, while granting accelerated hearing, threatened to close the charges against the defendants if the prosecution does not do due dilligence.

Justice James Omotoso, who issued the warning on Friday, asked the anti-graft agency to always get all its witnesses and exhibits ready on adjourned dates so as to avoid delay.

He warned that he would not tolerate lackadaisical attitude from any of the parties in the matter while shifting resumption of trial to March 14, 15, 20 and 21 .

Justice Omotoso also directed the defendants to keep further objections against the trial at abeyance, especially to the final address stage.

The Judge, who made this observation while ruling in a motion on notice filed by Suleiman Daudu challenging the amended charges, however, refused to quash the 17-count amended charge, involving alleged money laundering.

The court also declined to transfer the trial of the two defendants to Lokoja, the Kogi State capital, in line with the argument of the 2nd defendant through his counsel, Mr Jimoh Nureni, SAN, that since the alleged offence was committed in Lokoja, the proper and appropriate venue for trial should be at the Federal High Court in Lokoja.

The judge noted that the Federal High Court in Nigeria was one and that trial of any matter could be prosecuted in any of its divisions.
