Olatorera Majekodunmi-Oniru, amidst a crowd of over 120 enthusiastic supporters, has announced her plans for Ogun State Central Senatorial District. An Omo Egba, Princess Olatorera Majekodunmi-Oniru hails from the popular Egba Family of Central Ogun State, the Majekodunmi family. She married into the Oniru Royal Family in 2012 at Olusegun Obasanjo’s Presidential Library in Abeokuta, Ogun State.

Majekodunmi-Oniru’s Senatorial announcement was made at a ward briefing on Sunday, in Abeokuta South Local Government, clearing the air on speculations since her political ambitions filtered out months ago.

At the event, supporters chanted “APC!… Next Level!” and sang “Eje k’omode ko wa o eje k’omode ko wa jojolo, omo kekere jojolo awon lore eledumare eje k’omode kowa” which translates to “Allow the young to come forth!” “The Youth can lead, it is time!”

In turns, Ogun State indigenes stood tall and spoke on the importance of women and young leaders rising to the challenge of political leadership. Speeches radiated from the venue as supporters were all fiercely passionate about Majekodunmi-Oniru’s bold rise, passion, potentials and determination to join the Senate which currently has only 3% women and 0% youth.

Olatorera Majekodunmi-Oniru emphasized her full and unwavering readiness to run for Senate and move the district and nation forward. She iterated that this has been a relenting dream for over 20 years. She stressed all attendees to “Please get your Permanent Voter’s Card (PVC)”, “Mobilize Massively” and “Prepare to vote.” She concluded her speech with “We are ready. Nothing is stopping this movement for Greater Ogun and Greater Nigeria.”

Over the years, she has been an ardent investor, entrepreneur and business mogul passionate about all things Africa. As CEO of Olatorera Consultancy (Olatorera.com), she leads initiatives to realize a pinnacle in Africa’s history whereby we would rely less on importation and innovate more with natural resources and citizenry capabilities.
