She is said to have always loved to look exceptional and have eyes for details. She is one woman who does not like to go wrong in fashion.

Also before becoming the wife of the governor, Mrs. Obiano had been involved in charity programmes helping the less privileged. She undertook church welfare projects and was a marriage counsellor among other humanitarian endeavours. It is therefore no surprise that as First Lady of Anambra State, she set up an NGO, Caring Family Enhancement Initiative (CAFÉ) in August 2014 to advance her charity programmes.
Building houses for widows is said to be one her passion. So far, she has built and handed over 22 houses to widows in different communities. She facilitates free surgeries to children with congenital abnormality of Cleft lip and Cleft palate where over 100 has benefited.
