Obama appoints Nigerian journalist as US Human Trafficking Council advocate

US President Barack Obama has appointed Nigerian-American journalist and anti-human trafficking advocate, Bukola Oriola as a member of the US Advisory Council on Human Trafficking.

In a statement by the office of the Press Secretary of the White House on December 16, Obama said he was honoured that Oriola and 10 others appointed to serve in the council have decided to serve the country.

“They bring their years of experience and expertise to this Administration, and I look forward to working with them,” Obama stated. 
The White House statement added that Oriola, has served as an independent consultant, speaker, and author on human trafficking issues since 2009.

She founded The Entian Story in 2013, a non-profit organization which advocates for survivors of human trafficking and domestic abuse after her personal experience when she relocated from Nigeria to the US.
