Aisha Yesufu, a popular human rights activist, has made the BBC 100 Women List for what was described as ‘demanding good governance in her country. Her work as the co-convener of the Bring Back Our Girls campaign in response to the kidnapped Chibok girls in 2014 was recognised as well as her being a ‘prominent participant’ in the #EndSARS protests.
In reaction, Aisha Yesufu through her Twitter handle said it was a ‘humbling experience’ to have made the list.
“It is an honour and a humbling experience to be amongst @BBC100women,” she wrote.
She also dedicated her appearance on the list to Nigerians.
“My fellow Nigerians, this is for you! I AM BECAUSE WE ARE! One day we will have a nation where lives matter and the child of a nobody can become somebody without knowing anybody.”
