WSSCC is pleased to announce that the winner of the WSSCC Steering Committee elections for the Global Seat with effect April 2016 is Engineer Ebele Okeke.

Ms Okeke welcomed her new role as WSSCC Steering Commitee member by thanking all voters: “I want to use this opportunity to thank you for the confidence invested  in me through your votes.  I am therefore looking forward to helping support the goals of the WSSCC in impacting lives in communities around the world.”

Former Steering Committee member Mr. Dennis Mwanza congratulated Ms Okeke by emphasizing the importance of her role as a dedicated WASH ambassador in Nigeria and her previous work with WSSCC: “While losing is not the best of news, I am pleased that we have a woman, Ebele Okeke joining the Steering Committee, especially someone who has been involved with WSSCC for a long time (I think even longer than myself). It also is good news that we now have two elected women on the Committee which is good progress and the Chairperson continues to be a woman.

I wish to congratulate Ms Ebele Okeke and who is currently the WASH Ambassador in Nigeria for being elected to the Steering Committee of the WSSCC. I believe her immense administrative and professional skills will be only serve to benefit WSSCC.

It was certainly a great pleasure for me to have served on the WSSCC Steering Committee over the last three years since March 2013. I will continue being involved in anyway that I can with WSSCC activities and contribute to achieving our vision of a world where each and every person has access to safe water and adequate sanitation.”
