Kudirat Abiola, Adadevoh, others to be inducted into Hall of Fame.
The late female politician, Kudirat Abiola, the wife to the late presidential aspirant, MKO Abiola, and Dr Stella Adadevoh are among the prominent Nigerians to be inducted into the hall of fame by the Federal Government.
The Ministry of Women Affairs, through the National Centre for Women Development, Abuja, has perfected arrangements to honour the selected 22 Nigerian women who have done phenomenally well in their respective endeavours.
The government agency, while speaking on the induction, said the women who would be inducted on Monday June 10, two days to the Democracy Day, were selected for their iconic contributions to national development.
The induction is themed, “Celebrating Nigerian Women: Icons of Hope.”
Recall Adadevoh, who died in August 2014, was a Nigerian doctor who helped to curb the spread of the Ebola virus by ensuring that a Liberian patient, Patrick Sawyer, remained quarantined despite pressures from his country.
Kudirat was assassinated on June 9, 1996, during the heat of the June 12 struggle for democratic freedom in Nigeria.
