Call her an embodiment of poise, allure, aura, finesse, and sartorial elegance, you won’t be wrong in describing the Kwara State first lady Dr. Olufolake Abdulrazaq. The highly delectable and smooth-talking cerebral first-lady is regarded as one of the most pretty first ladies as her ravishing beauty cannot be ignored. She is indeed a classy woman, who loves elegant style and cosmopolitan looks. Despite her ravishing beauty, the former minister/head (Consular Education and Welfare Section, Nigeria High Commission, London) is soft at heart.
This led to the creation and establishment of her Ajike People Support centre, an NGO established to uplift humanity and help the needy. Over the years, she has always been a strong campaigner on raising consciousness on women youth and children by tackling issues threatening their progress, safety, and development. She has also used the platform to facilitate provision of shelter to victims of gender-based violence, sexual abuse, and rape with no access to support and counselling. Through collaboration with mental and women’s health professionals, she assisted victims through medical and therapy sessions to enable them cope with their trauma.
On August 2, the mother of three celebrated her 54th birthday with less fanfare. In her usual manner, she was hosted by workers in her office with birthday cards and cakes. Sources said she also used the occasion to touch the lives of the needy by giving out valuables after which she had a private dinner celebration with her hubby and children.
