In September 2019 she presided at the 49th Benue Women in Prayer (BEWIP) Prayer Convocation in Makurdi. She also inaugurated Mama Abyol Children’s Home and Benue Centre for Enterprise Development and Innovation (BENCEDI).

As A Cultural Icon

The wife of the Vice President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria, Mrs. Dolapo (née Soyode) Osinbajo, a granddaughter of the late Chief Obafemi Awolowo is an epitome of grace and candor. She is an icon of inspiration to the youth. The aesthetic second lady is a good ambassador to her home; her progenitor and the political wizardry of Awolowo.

The quotation above is one of the comments on a viral cultural portrait of Mrs. Osinbajo. She portrays and embellishes our fast-vanishing culture in Yorubaland. It is mesmerizing to see the wife of the Vice President of Nigeria genuflecting admirably to the admiration of Baba Buhari, the President of the Federal Republic of Nigeria.

Every culture in Nigeria has its own beautiful cultural heritage. “A people without the knowledge of their past history, origin, and culture is like a tree without roots.”

The tree will fall! We must work hard to preserve our culture! While we preserve our culture, we must not have contempt or dishonor for other people’s cultures. Mrs. Osinbajo is a cultural icon and renaissance—-and one of the cultural representations of the Yoruba unique tradition.

The infiltration of western cultures has done a lot of damage to our socio-cultural lives. With people like quintessential Mrs. Osinbajo and other great commentators and admirers of her vintage cultural persona, the hope for our cultural revival is not lost after all. Anytime I see Mrs. Oludolapo Osinbajo, she makes me a proud son of “Odû tó dá îwà” (Oduduwa). Admirably, it will be a great privilege for me to pay homage to this woman of substance anytime I am in Nigeria.

Interestingly, I have watched and studied the First Lady, Aisha Buhari along with the Second Lady, Dolapo Osinbajo closely with keen interest over the years. I admire these charismatic and simple women that betoken Nigerian and African cultural anthropology. The two ladies’ respect for elders is admirable and worthy of emulation by all decent men and women around.

The cooperation and mutual respect these women have for themselves are worthy of emulation. Meanwhile, in appearance and beauty, Mrs. Dolapo Osinbajo is an amorous woman. In substance and value, she beautifies potent minds.

In grace and blessings, God endows her with the refinement of movement, elegance, and contingent contentment. She’s a good representation of the young girls growing up in the fouled Nigerian political firmament. Mrs. Osinbajo is also a repairer to other dysfunctional families in our religious environment.

Second Lady Osinbajo is an adorable woman. If you see a family, or a man in a house dwelling in the euphoria of love and happiness, please, do not hesitate to give unblemished accolades and praises to the woman (manager) in the house for a job well done. Our loveable Vice President is a happy man with every simplicity he represents.

The woman is a catalyst for a happy home, and a woman is also an enhancer for a dysfunctional home. As a student of Cognitive Thinking, Mrs. Osinbajo’s advocacy for the prevention of violence against children and women in whatever form interests me a great deal. She believes strongly in the application of cognitive thinking in raising a family and children.

Mrs. Osinbajo’s unpretentious simplicity has embellished my mind in the most profound ways. She is not a two-faced individual. A behavior is very common to most Nigerians. She’s a well-cultured woman—-very respectful, faithful, loyal, and friendly to everyone she comes across.

Mrs. Osinbajo as one of the scions of Late Chief Obafemi Awolowo acts very true to her nurtured nature and cradle. She is the true daughter of her parents and our progenitors. Omo Yorûbá atààtà tó gbayi.

Why would this woman not enjoy the unblemished romance and true love of her husband-Yemi Osinbajo? Why would she not be loved by all lovers of our great Yoruba culture? I love people who possess respect, decency, and a humane demeanor.

Mrs. Osinbajo is one! But I have discreet impatience and zero tolerance for nagging, idiocy, opportunism, and grandstanding! Mrs. Osinbajo is a true representation of the inside and outside beauty of good Nigerian women.

Her self-preservation elated me to show my scions (children) her moral values, respect, and what she truly represents. Vice President Yemi Osinbajo’s wife, Dolapo is a role model for other women in good families and other families in search of their moral values and identities.
