SCTNigeria Appoints Its First Director
At the end of March, SCTN was able to appoint its first Director, Ramatu Umar-Bako, from a very strong field of candidates.
A lawyer, human rights advocate and development specialist, Ramatu has over 11 years experience working in both local and international organisations including the British Council where she was Governance Manager. In recognition of her work for women, she was appointed to the advisory board of Women in the New Nigeria for Empowerment & Positive Change. Ramatu has also contributed to a number of publications and has herself been the face of Tozali magazine.
Ramatu took up her post in April and will be based at ActionAid’s office in Abuja. Her appointment means that SCTN can now plan its own national launch as wellas the first of its local projects, starting in Abuja but, over time, rolling out across Nigeria.
