List Of Nigerian Women Hall Of Fame Inductees: Kudirat Abiola, Aisha Buhari by chelseaimmortal: 11:17am On Jun 11

The National Centre for Women Development (NCWD) has inducted the wife of the late Chief MKO Abiola, Alhaja Kudirat Abiola, Dr. Stella Adadevoh, and wife of Nigerian President, Aisha Buhari, into the Nigerian Women Hall of Fame.



The centre said this was in the tradition of keeping records of the wives of heads of states and presidents. The Director-General of the Centre, Mrs. Mary Ekpere-Eta, spoke in Abuja during the induction ceremony of 22 female icons into the Nigerian Women Hall of Fame.



Ekpere-Eta added that the late Kudirat Abiola, who was brutally murdered at the peak of the struggle for June 12, Dr. Adadevoh, who died while saving the country from the widespread of the deadly Ebola Virus, topped the list of the 22 inductees.



She said there was need to celebrate the achievements of Nigerian women considering various barriers which limited them from attaining success, adding that such women had paved way for the success of today’s women.

”The hall of fame features a comprehensive display of records of women from the pre-colonial days, who played legendary roles in trade and commerce, politics, inter-tribal wars etc, but since 2007, no woman has made it to the hall. The Hall of Fame provides role models for younger girls and the society at large on the unlimited potential of women in Nigerian society,” Ekpere-Eta said.

She assured Nigerians that the induction would be held every four years to ensure that women were adequately captured in the Hall of Fame. Ekpere-Eta said the selection was done on merit with documented proofs and assured that modalities, which included quest for excellence, integrity and other positive attributes were the ingredients considered for the selection.



The Wife of the President, Mrs. Aisha Buhari, who was represented by her Senior Special Adviser, Mrs. Hajo Sani, advised the inductees to mentor the younger generation to serve as legacy.

”It is the collective responsibility of women to continue to work in their different areas of specialisation toward contributing to nation building. I urge women to continue to operate in transparency, modesty, honesty and integrity which are core values of this administration and to contribute to next generation of women leaders,” she said.



The Special Adviser to the President on Diaspora, Mrs Abike Dabiri-Erewa, said the Hall of Fame would be a tourist centre for foreign nationals and diplomats who visited the country on official assignments.



She said the Hall of Fame would be one of the official places of call because it had added to the Nigerian story with women as major catalyst to national development. Senator Oluremi Tinubu and Vintage Garba Masi, who were the first females to represent two states in the senate were among the 23 inductees into the Nigerian Women Hall of Fame.



Other inductees included Hajiya Maryam Sanusi Dantata for Women and Youths empowerment, Flt. Lt. Blessing Liman, first female military pilot, Justice Zainab Bulkachuwa, first female judge of the appeal court, Dr Stella Adadevoh, for saving Nigeria from the spread of the Ebola virus, among others.

The Late Prof. Dora Akunyili deserve to top the list after Dr. Adadevoh. These are women that gave their all in the field of medicine and compacting of the menace of fake drugs in the country thereby saving millions of Nigerians in the process.
