Dame Virginia Ngozi Etiaba CON was the first Nigerian female Governor. She ruled Anambra state for 3months after Governor Peter Obi was Impeached by the state's Legislative.

She was a native of Nnewi and a renowned Businesswoman, teacher/Proprietress and political figure. She gave power back to Governor Peter Obi after an Appeal court nullified the impeachment that was carried out on him.
