The 36-year-old blogger made this known in an interview she granted The Nation where she said the kind of man she likes to have as husband is scarce.

She said, “When I was 30, my standards were extremely high. But I wasn’t really looking. I was just so focused on work because I’ve always been so ambitious. I wasn’t focused on marriage and kids and I felt like that would draw me back… The type of men that some of us are looking for are scarce. If I want to get married next week, I can. I want a man that I can look up to. Somebody that inspires me, somebody that will push me, motivate me; somebody who has had some success in his own career.”

When she eventually gets married, though with caveat, Linda said she would move out of her N500m house at Banana Island for the man’s house, “I will move to the man’s house; as long as it’s not a three bedroom flat.”

She denied claims made by daughter of ex-Oyo State governor, Kemi Olunloye that she was a beneficiary of Dasuki-gate.

She said, “The reason I didn’t make an issue out of the Dasuki stuff is because it was overwhelming. I bought a house in Banana Island for half a billion and people can’t wrap their heads around it. They start thinking it has to be something shady. Up until the scandal blew open, I never heard about the man Dasuki. So I know I’m not guilty of anything.”
