Africans Rising, Sylv Saki, OSIWA and TrustAfrica invite you to a discussion of Ayisha Osori's "Love Does Not Win Elections"

International Women's Day is an opportunity to recognize the great contributions of African women to the advancement of our continent. As part of our celebration this year, TrustAfricaAfricans RisingOSIWA, and Sylv Saki (“Un Mois, Un Livre”) are excited to welcome Ayisha Osori for a round table discussion of her book, Love Does Not Win Elections. Ayisha's beautifully written memoir pulls the reader in from the first sentence, as she takes us on her often unbelievable journey contesting for elections as a woman in Nigeria. Osori gives a much-needed first-hand account of Nigerian politics, from an unapologetically feminist perspective. A must-read for anyone interested in the mire that is Nigerian politics and, beyond Nigeria, in what women have to go through, almost everywhere, to "get a seat at the table".


  • Presentation of the book by the author, Ayisha Osori, Executive Director of OSIWA
  • First discussant: Ebrima Sall (TrustAfrica)
  • Second discussant: Gilles Yabi (WATHI, TBC)

The discussion will be moderated by Coumba Touré, Coordinator at Africans Rising, and Chair of TrustAfrica's Board of Trustees. 

Copies of the book will be available for sale. Please join us!
