Mrs. Oludolapo Osinbajo the second lady of Nigeria, the wife to the vice president of Nigeria, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo. She is also the granddaughter of one greatest hero that walked past the earth, the perpetrator of free education in Nigeria, talking of no other that Pa Obafemi Awolowo of blessed memory.
She is the daughter of Mrs. Otunba Olubusola Soyode one of the children of Obafemi Awolowo, she lost her mum in the year 2011. Mrs. Oludolapo Osinbajo, nee Soyode, happens to be the only daughter of her parents.
Mrs. Oludolapo Osinbajo happens to be the leader of the Ladies Fellowship of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Jesus House Parish.
In the year 2007, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo and his wife Mrs. Oludolapo Osinbajo founded “The Orderly Society Trust”, a non- governmental organization that is dedicated to the promotion of Christian ethics and orderliness.
Mrs. Oludolapo Osinbajo who studied and been qualified as a lawyer just like her husband. She is also a writer and she is the author of the book, ‘They Call Me Mama!’ which chronicles her experiences interacting with and reforming street boys in Lagos Island.
In October 2014, Mrs. Dolapo Osinbajo launched her book, ‘They Call Me Mama, From the Under Bridge Diaries’ in Lagos. She made mention that her major drive to write the book came from her experiences with some street boys and men in Lagos State, and with the book, she aims to give them a human face.
Mrs. Dolapo Osinbajo further proceeds that; she hopes to sustain her efforts in getting the street urchins off the roads and into homes. She explained that her weekly visits to the ‘boys’ in their hideout under the bridge for several years has filled me with unforgettable stories.
Reminiscences of these times are the focus of this book. Our original meeting spot which was lovingly referred to as ‘Under’, today; it has been transformed to the Muri Okunola Park. To me, they are beloved children and they call me “Mama”. They are lost, but can be found.
That was why I was compelled to write the book and I dedicate the book to everyone who is lost, to the outcasts on the fringes of society, cast out circumstances, poverty, addictions of any sort, broken marriages, child abuses and sometimes family issues.
Mrs. Dolapo Osibanjo urged the society to always say no to violence against women which she said could be perpetrated through attacks when hawking, marrying a violent and uncontrollable man, handing over the child for others to train, rape, slavery among other forms of assault against women and girls.
Mrs. Dolapo Osinbajo happens to be a very faithful, beautiful and well cultured woman, and her friendly act has got her so closed to the wife of the Mr. President, unlike past administration. She didn’t let their difference in religion and culture cause any issue between them.
Vice president Yemi Osinbanjo and his beautiful wife Mrs. Dolapo Osinbajo are blessed with three lovely children, a boy and two girls, Kanyinsola, Kiki, and Fiyinfoluwa in which they happily live together.
