It is with great sadness that JCI announces the passing of the 2018 JCI Niger President Abdoul Karim Soumana on 19 February 2018. 


Soumana made a positive impact on this organization thanks to his significant contributions to JCI as a member and National President. Starting off his JCI career in 2006, Soumana began as a JCI University Niamey member where he served as the Communications Director in 2008. He became a member of his current Local Organization, JCI Niamey in 2010 where he served in several positions, including Legal Counsel, Vice President, and culminating in 2014 as JCI Niamey President. During his tenure as Local President, JCI Niamey’s flagship project was RAU Zero, which aimed to eliminate all urban accidents in the community. This year, Karim was serving as the JCI Niger President. 


“President Karim is the typical portrait of the passionate and dedicated member! Karim was a good man—available [to members], committed, courteous, respectful of values and the hope that I saw for JCI Niger. In such a short time, President Karim was able to open doors that had remained closed for our organization. His memory will guide the march of this organization so that what he started can be completed by others,” said JCI Niger Immediate Past President Moussa Ibrahima Halilou.


On behalf of JCI members worldwide, 2018 JCI President Marc Brian Lim and JCI Secretary General Arrey Obenson extend their deepest condolences to the family and friends of 2018 JCI Niger President Abdoul Karim Soumana. He will be remembered with respect and admiration for his leadership and commitment to the active participation of young people as a way to create sustainable impact worldwide. Share your messages of condolence with the family.
