Nneka Isaac-Moses, Managing Director, Goge Africa, a culture and tourism promotion brand, has commended Pelumi Nubi, the 28-year-old travel content creator who successfully embarked on a solo drive from London to Lagos in 68 days.
Isaac-Moses, in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Tuesday in Lagos, said Nubi’s journey was a testament to the resilience, courage, and tenacity that define the Nigerian spirit.
NAN reports that  Nubi departed London on Jan. 31 and arrived in Nigeria through the Seme border on Sunday, April 7.
Nubi was treated to a heroic welcome upon arrival by the Lagos State Government, and on Monday, Gov. Babajide Sanwo-Olu presented her a branded car and named her a tourism ambassador of the state.
Issac-Moses said Nubi’s incredible feat highlighted the endless possibilities available to individuals who dare to dream big and push the boundaries of what is considered possible. 

“I am absolutely thrilled and inspired by the remarkable achievement of Pelumi Nubi. Driving all the way from London to Lagos? Wow!
“Her story serves as a powerful reminder that with passion, perseverance, and a clear vision, one can overcome any obstacle and achieve the seemingly impossible.
“I commend her extraordinary journey and wish her continued success in all her future endeavors. May her story continue to inspire others to reach for the stars and embrace the limitless possibilities that lie before us,” she said.
The culture promoter noted that Nubi’s accomplishment should serve as a source of motivation and empowerment for many young Nigerians, especially women.
“This should encourage them to break free from limitations, explore new horizons, and pursue their goals with unwavering dedication,” she said.
Also, Adebayo Olowo-Ake, a consultant of Public and Humanitarian Diplomacy, said that Nubi encapsulates the patriotism of the younger generation who passionately identify with their Nigerian nationality and flaunt it proudly.
“I think she’s quite adventurous, but quite bold given the security problems we’re experiencing in West Africa and of course in Nigeria as well.
“Driving through difficult terrain in these circumstances is quite bold and commendable.
“I think that by this trip, she has contributed to re-positioning Nigerian tourism potential in the consciousness of the travelling public worldwide,” Olowo-Ake said.
Nollywood filmmaker, Funke Akindele, via her Instagram page celebrated and congratulated Nubi.
She said: “This is huge!!! Congratulations on this milestone as the first woman to solo drive from London to Lagos.
“This road trip has been 68 days of strength and determination. This is indeed exceptional and I celebrate your resilience #superwoman.”
NAN reports that Nubi’s road manifest from UK took her through France and Spain into Africa through Morocco.
The manifest indicates that she went across Mauritania, Senegal, Gambia ,Guinea-Bissau, Guinea, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Mali, Burkina Faso, Côte d’Ivoire (Ivory Coast), Ghana, Togo, Benin, and finally to Lagos, Nigeria. (NAN)
