Black History Month Conversation with Councillor Jibs Abitoye
Time & Location
About the Event
Just five years after immigrating from Nigeria, Ajibola (Jibs) Abitoye was elected as a councillor for the City of Fort Saskatchewan, Alberta, in 2017.
“I just wanted to serve and give back somehow,” says Abitoye, who credits the support of her loving husband. “ That’s why, right from when I first got here in 2012, I started volunteering.”
Soon, she found herself on two boards, including serving as chair of the Fort Saskatchewan Multicultural Association.
Let us partake in her life experience and knowledge together as one community.
The conversation will be moderated by Lova Nyemb Bassong.
