The Executive Director of FAME Foundation and award-winning journalist, Aderonke Ogunleye-Bello, has been appointed as the Representative of the President-elect on Media and Publicity Sub-committee of the Transition Presidential Council.
She remains one of the patriotic and unapologetic fans of President-Elect Bola Ahmed Tinubu.

Shortly after the former Lagos Governor was announced as the winner of the 2023 Presidential polls by INEC, the energetic activist wrote on her Twitter @aderonkew wall: “Tinubu will not give you assignments and sit down to watch. Tinubu is Mourinho, Klopp, and Guardiola in one person. He is a technician, tactician, strategist, and serial winner. He is reliable and will deliver the trophy of success and good governance. Congratulations, Nigerians……”

Despite being a journalist of repute, the gender rights advocate and sports development enthusiast, she took the responsibility of tackling fake news attempting to discredit the president-elect.

She could be described as one of the most versatile APC social media influencers with an interest in ensuring renewed hope in the country. Her Twitter page is a weapon of response to wailers, especially the ‘Obidients’ who are purveyors of fake news.

Recently, Aderonke confidently affirmed that the President-Elect will select at least 35% of women into leadership positions in the country following the number of women listed in the transition committee.

This followed Tinubu’s announcement of the Executive Director of Nigeria Export-Import Bank, Stella Okotete; APC National Women Leader, Dr. Betta Edu; and Zainab Marwa-Abubakar, daughter of the Chairman of the National Drug Law Enforcement Agency, Brig. Gen. Buba Marwa (retd.), in the Transition Committee ahead of the May 29 inauguration.


Aderonke is a fighter and could be described as a strong woman in the midst of millions of active men. A multi-tasking woman of many parts with rare managerial skills and an unquenchable knack for success. Also, a regular facilitator of women’s empowerment across the country.

Her appointment as one of the sub-committee members of the Presidential Councils defines her level of capacity in handling issues.


Her responsibility on social media in addressing facts shows her class of Renewed Hope.

Arabirin Aderonke occupied the space of media when she boastfully declared her undying passion for the President-elect who is taking the oaths of office in a few days.


A fluently spoken Aderonke said: “I’m a woman and one of the reasons I stand for Asiwaju is because of his position for women. I support anybody that stands for women to get the necessary support, the needed freedom, empowerment, and mentorship. I can say to you that I am impressed and convinced that Asiwaju will take women along in his government,” she declared.

This declaration and support has taken Arabirin Aderonke a step further in becoming one of the true face, bold and vibrant women in the Presidential Transition Council.
