In an effort to honor Nigeria’s impactful female leaders and their pivotal contributions to the nation’s advancement, RED Africa, a premier governance communication firm, is thrilled to announce the launch of the “Women Behind The State (WBTS)” list, in collaboration with Ubuntu Tribe, a pioneer in the financial tech sector of tokenized real-world assets, starting with gold. Ubuntu Tribe is driven by sustainability, diversity, and equal opportunities, regardless of place of birth or wealth at birth.

The WBTS list is a testament to the outstanding achievements of women across various sectors in Nigeria. Recognizing their exemplary leadership in governance, social policy, business, and committed activism, this initiative shines a spotlight on their unwavering dedication to shaping a prosperous future for the country.

On the importance of the WBTS list, Ayodeji Razaq, CEO of RED Africa, stated, By celebrating their remarkable achievements, we not only recognize their dedication to progress but also champion their pivotal role in fostering a more inclusive and equitable society. Through the WBTS list, we honor their outstanding contributions, amplifying their voices and paving the way for a future where every woman has equal opportunities to thrive and succeed.”

Chinyere Akataobi, Business Lead at StateCraft Inc., emphasized the importance of this initiative, stating, “The WBTS list serves as a powerful inspiration for women and girls nationwide, showcasing the limitless possibilities available to them. The diverse array of accomplished women featured on this list exemplifies the pivotal role women play in shaping Nigeria’s governance, social policy, business landscape, and advancing committed activism for the betterment of the nation.”

Partnering with Ubuntu Tribe underscores the initiative’s commitment to celebrating success and promoting economic empowerment. Leveraging blockchain technology, Ubuntu Tribe facilitates access to gold through its GIFT (Gold International Fungible Token) and Utribe Wallet, fostering financial inclusion and sustainability.

At Ubuntu Tribe, we see a future where Africa’s prosperity is powered by the touch of female leadership,” declared Mamadou KwidjimToure, Founder. “Financial inclusion for all is our mission, and empowering women, the continent’s matriarchs, is the key to unlocking exponential economic growth. We’re honored to celebrate these remarkable women shaping Nigeria’s future through the WBTS initiative with Red Media.”

The WBTS list showcases women who have made tangible impacts across Nigerian society. From influential figures such as the Head of Service Civil, Folashade Yemi-Esan, Senator Ireti Kinigbe to dynamic business leaders like Funke Akindele and Owen Diana Omogiafo, to dedicated social activists such as Ndidi Nwuneli, Kehinde Ayeni, and Aisha Yesufu these women have left an indelible mark on Nigeria’s trajectory.
