Wife of the Vice-President of Nigeria, Dolapo Osinbajo took everyone by surprise when recently she revealed emotionally what could be termed a dark of her life at an event.
The amiable First Lady said that she used to work among area boys and call girls in some slums of Lagos, according to her, this has made her able to identify with these set of people. Wife to Yemi Osinbajo gave people a glimpse into her past life and endeavours.
This she did while rendering a speech at an Anti-Substance-Abuse programme to commemorate the International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking. In her speech which came after an enacted play, Dolapo said that she used to work in the slums of Lagos among area boys and call girls. The Public Relations Agency which made the statement available to newsmen on Saturday, said that Mrs Osinbajo specifically made it clear disclosed this at the National Conference which was held in Abuja.
They also quoted her as saying that the event reminded her of the time she spent with some area boys in Lagos and identified with their lifestyles.
Her original statement read thus:
“I insisted on watching the play, which is based on the perils of substance abuse because I wanted to recollect a past experience. I wanted to watch the drama to relive the memory of the times that I spent working in the slums of Lagos among area boys, prostitutes, people who had been rejected and those who seemed lost already.
“The drama was so life-like that I can pinpoint aspects of my experience in the dramatic piece, and as the drama went on, I can identify some people that I knew so many years ago.”
Dolapo also urged everyone, all stakeholders involved, to join in the fight against substance abuse. The play which had caused Dolapo to talk about her past received applauses from several guests which included politician and businessman, Tonye Cole, wife of Kebbi governor, Zainab Bagudu, and others.
Another performance (a musical show) about substance abuse was also performed by an actor, singer and anti-substance abuse advocate, David Jones.
Dolapo Osinbajo shared a beautiful family photo after her husband Yemi was inaugurated for the second time as the vice-president of Nigeria. The lovely picture also featured her son, two daughters and son-in-law Seun Bakare.
