Throughout her career, Ann has consistently displayed initiative, resilience, dynamism, and a vibrant spirit that has propelled her forward in her endeavours.

Her exceptional dedication to helping society and unwavering support for security, good governance, democracy, and societal betterment make her an outstanding leader.

While attending the TEXEM programme, she actively participated and portrayed impressive emotional intelligence and ability to think critically, infectious drive, commendable capacity to multitask and inestimable capability to inspire.

TEXEM UK firmly believes that this prestigious global recognition will serve as a catalyst, inspiring Ann Iyonu to continue her remarkable work and make an even more significant impact on society. With this fellowship, Ann has been bestowed with an extraordinary opportunity to expand her influence, network, and knowledge, further empowering her to drive positive change on a global scale.

Ann’s selection as a Global Yale Fellow reflects positively on the Goodluck Jonathan Foundation, an organisation dedicated to advancing democracy, good governance, and peace across Africa. Her accomplishments highlight the Foundation’s commitment to fostering leadership and excellence in the service of humanity.

TEXEM UK congratulates Ann Iyonu, her family, and her friends on this momentous achievement. We are confident that this recognition will only fuel her passion and determination, motivating her to mentor more high-impact leaders who will join her in shaping a brighter future.
