Oludolapo Osinbajo, wife of the Vice President was down of her kneels on Thursday to greet former Head of State, General Yakubu Gowon, rtd, at the Aso Rock Christmas Carol held yesterday night.
This act of humility got Nigerians talking and showering praises on her for upholding the Yoruba culture of respect regardless of the fact that she is the wife of a serving vice president.
The photo is currently trending on social media as people acknowledged her traditional knowledge and respect for the elder statesman.
Meanwhile, Osinbajo’s wife spoke recently at a ‘Teens Career Conference’ organized by The Everlasting Arms Parish TEAP of the Redeemed Christian Church of God RCCG, Garki, Abuja.
At the event, she described how she spent about 10years under several notorious Lagos bridges with street urchins in the bid to reshape them and reverse their life trajectories.
Many don’t know that Mrs Oludolapo Osinbajo is a grandchild of the late Obafemi Awolowo. She lost her mother Otunba Olubusola Soyode, one of the children of the late Awolowo, in 2011. Mrs. Dolapo Osinbajo is the leader of the Ladies Fellowship of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Jesus House Parish.
Addressing the teenagers, Mrs Oludolapo Osinbajo said; “When I became a worker in the church, the first place I worked was the Teenage Church and for 10 years I was in the Children’s Church. For 10 years, I was under the bridge; under the bridge in Lagos with ‘Area Boys’.
So, every kind of drug that there is, I know about it. I have seen it before and I have seen the effects as well and I will like you to know that the ones that use it are not different from you. Some of them too have parents in the church. Some of them have parents with very big names. There are some streets in Lagos that the names of the streets are names of people, some of which have their children under the bridge. There were people whose parents lived in America and yet their children were under the bridge. So, do not even imagine that it cannot happen to you, but you must be an example in your conduct”.
