Theme: A Model for Change: Gender Quotas and Expanding Female Participation in Politics.
On the 8th of April 2014, under the leadership of President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan GCFR, Nigeria officially became the largest economy in Africa overtaking South Africa, for the first time in history.
His policy thrusts have positioned him as the first African leader to fully embrace and execute the Beijing 30% quota; President Goodluck Jonathan boldly appointed an unprecedented number of women into strategic federal level positions directly linked to his Transformation Agenda. Women now have a fair chance to play a part in shaping the destiny of the great country of Nigeria.
