Lady Aqueen Ibeto came into prominence with her election as the deputy president of Ohanaeze UK, representing Enugu State in 2018. She made history, weekend, when she became the very first Igbo woman to be entrusted with the office of Ohanaeze President anywhere in the world.

She founded Adaure Women, a non-governmental organization and was the first Vice President of Igbo communities in the UK.
