Recognition eventually came the way of Member Fesse, one of
the few survivors of Boko Haram bombing of the United Nations office in Abuja
some years ago.
Fesse, a post-graduate student of Poverty and Development at
the Institute of Development Studies at the University of Sussex, was presented
with the prestigious THISDAY game changer award for not giving up on her
dreams.
It would be recalled that face of Hope campaigner was at the
UN office on the fateful day to collect data for her dissertation on social
protection in Nigeria when the terrorist struck.
After her miraculous survival, Fesse refused to stand down
from what she believes is right and just by converting what started as a
support group for her recovery into an advocacy body that demands improved
service delivery and accountability, especially for the poor and marginalised
in society.
Through “Team Member” she is working to provide modern
prosthetic centre in Nigeria where artificial limbs can be made available for
those who need it.
Fesse is currently a staff in the department of Development
Finance at the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).
