Dolapo Osinbajo Has Lived Among Prostitutes In Lagos
Do you know that the Wife of the Vice President, Oludolapo Osinbajo has worked among prostitutes and area boys before? Well, Dolapo recalled that experience after watching the play, “Area Boy’’, which reminded her of the time she spent working in the slums of Lagos amongst area boys and prostitutes.
According to the statement, which was published by the PR Agency representing Mrs Osinbajo, during the National Conference for the MTN-led Anti Substance-Abuse Programme, in Abuja. “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 again the times that I spent working in the slums of Lagos, among the area boys, among prostitutes, among the rejects, and the lost. 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,”
Osinbajo encouraged everyone to join in the fight against drug abuse, because this multi-headed monster required a multi-stakeholder intervention.
“Area Boy” play received a standing ovation due to its amazing performance, the elite guests, which included Oludolapo Osinbajo, politician and businessman, Tonye Cole, Wife of Kebbi State Governor, Zainab Bagudu, and others.
The MTN Anti-Substance Abuse Project, ASAP, was so interesting even as it rounded up the event with a performance of an energetic musical show by David Jones, an actor, singer and anti-substance abuse advocate. ASAP, is an initiative spearheaded by MTN Foundation, to deliver interventions that contribute to a significant reduction in the rate of drug abuse among the youths.
