  • I am impressed by the reasons why she quit, (MORAL, PERSONAL & POLITICAL CONFLICTS). Let us not judge her too early because circumstances dictates change. After all, the story of Joan of Arc had vaguely similar such reasons. Someone very close to me worked in the office where she was a partner.
