Hafsat Abiola Appointed as President of Women in Africa

An activist for human rights and democracy, Hafsat Abiola-Costello has been appointed as the Executive President and CEO of Women in Africa (WIA) Initiative, a day after the 22nd year anniversary of the gruesome murder of her mother, Mrs. Kudirat Abiola.

Announcing her appointment on Tuesday,
WIA Founder, Aude de Thuin, said Abiola-Costello's personality and career as an activist made her the ideal candidate.

"First, because of her personality. She was one of our first WIA Ambassadors, and joined WIA Council a year ago. Secondly, because of her career as an activist for human rights, civil rights and democracy, and values so close to ours made her the ideal candidate. Finally, for her analysis and her vision of the role of women in the economy. All this combined made it obvious that she is the right person at the right place.

"This is the stage of maturity. Since the beginning of WIA Initiative, I have always said that I would give my place to an African woman, because it is in the logic of WIA to have an African President. It is with women that Africa will develop in trust and in complementarity with men," Thuin said.
