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.
