Her tweet reads:

"Congratulations Dr Njideka Udochi, Maryland’s Family Physician Of The Year. Thank you for your care of COVID-19 patients and for saving so many lives. Proud of you my sister."

Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that Nigerians had reacted to Okonjo-Iweala's husband's shoes in emerging photos.

In the throwback photo making the rounds and shared on Twitter by @huncklechu, the couple gave a cheeky smile as they posed for the camera.

Nigerians gushed about their love story and described them as being worthy of emulation. However, some sections of tweeps were particular about Ngozi's husband, Ikemba Iweala's shoe in the second frame. They argued that his shoe is not a reflection of his current status, a testament to his humility.
