AMG Logistics Update: Okonjo-Iweala, Yesufu, Others Lead Pack of 100 Top Women Leaders

The Director-General of the World Trade Organization (WTO) and the former Minister of Finance in Nigeria, Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Nigeria’s leading social crusader, Mrs. Aisha Yesufu, Deputy Secretary-General of the United Nations, Mrs. Amina Mohammed, and the former Minister of Education, Mrs. Oby Ezekwesili are among the outstanding women included in the biographical compendium on top women leaders.

Nigeria Women’s Annual: 100 Leading Women is an annual comparative profile of phenomenal women in Nigeria who have contributed to the growth of Nigeria and the world.

It is a gender-specific biographical compendium that refers to current gender disparities in Nigeria’s biographical documentation and leadership.

These profiles will be released as the most qualitative and definitive up-to-date biographical profile of Nigeria’s 100 most inspiring and prominent women for 2020.

This biographical compendium, which was collectively compiled by Profiles & Biographies in conjunction with Gender Perspective, and here proudly reported by AMG Logistics, captured the experiences of women who are intended to inspire women to do better with their lives.

Project Director Kammonke Abam said: “Coming from a year that has been incredibly difficult, including a global pandemic that has caused the world to lose legends, champions, families, and friends, it is important that we find new avenues to share stories that have made outstanding achievements in a year of unprecedented turmoil and destruction.

“Telling the stories of exceptional achievements is part of our modern ways of fostering our rich ideals, of dreaming about the future and of engaging with each other.”

Abam said that the Profiles & Biographies and Gender Perspective carefully selected these outstanding Nigerian women who “broke the glass ceiling,” defied the odds, overstepped their limits, and achieved heights that are remarkable, and through all of these, have helped shape our beloved nation, Nigeria, and have contributed tremendously to its growth.
