Dame Patience; First Lady of African First Ladies

 Nigeria was on Thursday in Abuja re-elected unopposed as president of the Africa First Ladies Peace Mission for another two years. The four regional vice-presidents were also elected. They are Cameroun, Libya, Sudan and South Africa. Nigeria’s first lady, Patience Jonathan, took over the leadership of the mission from Turai Yar’Adua following the death of her husband, President Umar Yar’Adua, in 2010. The Africa First Ladies Peace Summit, which started on Tuesday, ended on Friday. Among other things, the Mission is aimed at strengthening the roles of African first ladies in fostering peace on the continent.
