HRH Olori Atuwatse III
Queen Consort, Warri Kingdom

HRH Olori Atuwatse III is a UN SDG Ambassador and a visionary leader committed to making an impact through community, empowerment, education and mind transformation. With a legal background from the London School of Economics and as a member of professional organisations like CIARB Nigeria, Olori combines her entrepreneurial spirit and expertise to create value across various industries.



She has successfully founded start-ups in the fashion and hospitality sectors. She sits on the boards of the Wells Property Development Company, the Wells Carlton, and Wells Bakehouse, and is constantly on the lookout for opportunities to create value through enterprise. Olori is also an avid lover of God, and her mission to transform lives extends through her ministry, where she helps people build their faith and identity by teaching them to hear God for themselves. She founded Abba’s Jewels in 2017, a community of pioneering women who have together impacted communities through outreaches and prison drives across Nigeria.


Beyond enterprise, Olori has a passion for coaching young people and mentoring them at various learning phases with practical skills, through education and vocational training.


The Captain Idahosa Wells Okunbo STEM and Innovation Lab is another initiative by the Queen Consort in partnership with CleverMinds Educational Foundation. The flagship centre located in Iyara Community teaches orphans and disadvantaged children in Warri and its environs to reach their full potential by exposing them to the innovative world of STEM-based quality education, entrepreneurial skills, and psychosocial support


Olori Atuwatse III is also a strong advocate for children’s education, particularly the empowerment of the girl-child. She believes that quality education should not be the preserve of the privileged few but for every child regardless of their socioeconomic status. The Queen Consort has endowed hundreds of children with scholarships and is a champion of youth upskilling, character reformation and self-leadership. Olori champions early literacy and creativity through Storytime with Mama Iwere, an initiative close to Her Majesty’s heart that teaches children core values and soft skills. Storytime is also a kids’ club that seeks to develop a flair for the arts in children through drama and dance workshops.



Olori champions several empowerment initiatives such as the Warri Women Entrepreneurial Fund (WWEF), which collaborates with financial institutions to provide financial support and tools such as Point of Sales (POS) training and distributions of POS machines, as well as mentorship programmes for young business owners.



HRH Olori is named among the 2023 List of 100 Most Influential African Women by Avance Media.
