Ethiopia PM Dr Abiy Ahmed Among 100 Most Influential Africans Of 2018

New African Magazine’s List Of 100 Most Influential Africans

Horndiplomat-Ethiopian Prime Minister Dr. Abiy Ahmed and six other Ethiopians, including Group CEO of Ethiopian Airlines, Tewolde GebreMariam and CEO of Ethio Telecom, Frehiwot Tamiru have made it to New African magazine’s list of “100 Most Influential Africans.”
According to New African magazine, the annual list has become an industry and readers’ much-awaited collation – revealing Africans who contributed in shaping the African narrative in the concluding year and envisaged to play a big role in the coming year, both on the continent and in the Diaspora.
There is an equal amount of men and women featuring in this year’s list of “100 Most Influential Africans,” and the report noted Dr. Abiy’s bold moves to ensure gender parity. It said, “Ethiopia even taking a lead in achieving gender parity in Cabinet, and appointing its first ever female President under its new reformist Prime Minister Abiy, the magazine felt it apt to produce a 50/50 ratio in this year’s list…and this happened as much by chance as it did by design.”
