Omolewa Ahmed, Bisi Adeleye-Fayemi, others discuss women in African politics at Ake Fest17

Some days ago,  the First Lady of Kwara State, Mrs Omolewa Ahmed, Yemi Adamolekun, Mrs Bisi Adeleye Fayemi were held in a conversation about how more women can actively participate in politics in Nigeria and beyond at the 2017 Ake Arts and Book Festival held at the June 12 Cultural Centre, Kuto, Abeokuta.

The panel, with the theme, ‘Getting Women into Politics’ was part of the impressive line-up of activities at the Ake Arts and Book Festival which  in its five years excelled at hosting over 300 writers, thinkers, poets, artists and lovers of the Nigerian culture and society to events focused on appreciating works of art and the literature that has come out of the continent.



This year’s festival, themed ‘This F-word’ is focused on issues around women and feminism and listed Chude Jideonwo and Adebola Williams’ new book, ‘How to Win Elections in Africa: Parallels with Donald Trump’ as one of the festival books.



The event was the official introduction of the Ake Festival guests to the new book by Jideonwo and Williams.
