On February 16, 2017, mother of the Vice President of Nigeria, Prof. Yemi Osinbajo, Mrs. Olubisi Osinbajo, clocked 84 years old. Her son, Yemi Osinbajo and wife were present to celebrate with her.
Meanwhile, the mother of four, who is a widow reminisced in an interview with SUNDAY PUNCH, how she trained four boys alone.
She said, “It was very tough raising four boys. That is why I am called ‘Mumisco.’ A mother with all boys will have to behave like a boy herself if she intends to train them properly. When they started growing up, I made it compulsory for them to say their prayers every morning. Whether they liked it or not, it was an activity that must be done. They would grumble but I did not budge. It was not easy training them. But we knew that someday, everything would be okay. And it turned out that way because all of them are doing well in their chosen careers. Two of them were once Attorneys-General and Commissioners for Justice in Ogun and Lagos states."
