My friend Dr. Anwar Ahmed Osman introduced me to her in her office. I think it was on the 16th floor of the tallest building in Sudan. The Telecom building on Nile Street . Tahani Abdalla Attia was the State Minister of Science and Communication then. I took a picture of the Blue Nile and Manshiya Bridge from her window. I found her to be a very simple and intelligent lady. She was in the Faculty of Engineering & Architecture at the University of Khartoum before her Ministerial post. Today I read the news about her promotion as Federal Minister of Science & Communication and sent her a Congratulatory message through SMS. Prompt came her reply thanking me.I wish her all the best.
