Vice-Chairman of Ikorodu local government, Aarebirin Hon Princess Folashade Olabanji-Oba was part of the newly appointed cabinet members in Ikorodu local government secretariat on the 13th of April 2022.
The woman leader who’s also the global director-general of the Asiwaju distinguished Ambassador movement (ADAM) was sworn-in, doubling her obligation at the local government as a supervisor for Education to the administration ably led by Hon Wasiu Adesina.
Affirming her absolute love for women empowerment programs and youth upliftment initiatives, the National deputy chairman of the association of local government vice chairmen in Nigeria, revealed her passion for education to Ikorodu News Network (INN) post-swearing-in.
“Presiding over an endeavour that correlates to women’s upliftment is natural to me (which is crystal clear in the protrusion of my Shelter of Grace foundation), But education is a realm that is very intimate to my heart, so this appointment is another recourse for me to serve”
“I am of the notion that education is an endless foyer in life no matter our age span, it modifies our perspectives and gives us an identity of self-worth and change envoy. Education is an expanse that extricates an average individual to become completely efficient in his/her world” Aarebirin Princess Folashade illustrates
Referencing the Lagos State’s THEMES agenda of Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu, Aarebirin Princess Folashade averred functioning in line with the current administration’s trajectory to improve the academic sector in Ikorodu local government.
She continued, “formal and informal method of education is precisely what I’ll be touching on, just like I said earlier, there is no age restriction to learning”
“It is going to be beyond just the classroom because I’ll be looking at adult education. Coming to the youth, we know that the future starts today and their level of knowledge liberates them from becoming a victim of the society”
“My mother never went to school, but she thought me the importance of education, which has transformed me into the leader I have become today. Showing these youths educational routes will reduce the level of tension we feel around our communities on daily basis”
“The more educated we’re, the more we’ll experience reduced anxiety and tension because it will be about adequate orientation to take advantage of every single opportunity coming our way”
