A small world indeed! According to the U.S. Department of State: Bureau of African Affairs, in 1984, Assistant Secretary Linda Thomas-Greenfield was serving as a Consular Officer in Lagos, Nigeria, when an artist named Tunde Odunlade (pictured above) came to her window seeking a visa to the United States. 32 years later in Washington, DC, Mr. Odunlade recognized the Assistant Secretary when they were both panelists for a discussion on the Chibok girls.
He recently visited her at the U.S. Department of State and he brought along some of his artwork. He also thanked her for approving his visa three decades ago.
