HON. MOJISOLA ALLI-MACAULAY (MAMA AMUWO) DEFILING THE ODDS
The Nigerian woman still grapples to make her voice heard in the country’s political scene which is largely dominated by the male folks. Even the privileged few who make efforts to get their voice heard get drowned by the heavy political torrent with little or no impact. But one woman has continued to fan the embers of innovation within and outside the political terrain with her laudable works of ingenuity and empowerment programmes – all tailored towards changing the narratives of the nation’s helpless citizens.
Unknown to many, the name Hon. Mojisola Alli-Macaulay with the sobriquet, Mama Amuwo is one that invokes some romantic images of progress, ambition and possibility. These rare qualities define the personality of Mama Amuwo and the ideals that she stands for.
A woman of impeccable intelligence, Mama Amuwo has earned for herself an impressive track record of success in different managerial positions. She cut her teeth in History and International Relations at the Lagos State University (LASU), where she bagged her first degree (B.Sc.). This fearless reformer has walked her talk in Journalism and Marketing, and her penchant for learning has propped her to master the tenets of legislation at the University of Lagos (UNILAG) where she is currently studying Law.
To the chagrin of many observers, Mama has defied existing norms and stuck out her neck for the struggle for a free and fair internal democracy on multiple fronts. She is a shining example of Mother Theresa, the selfless amazon who dedicated her life to serving the underprivileged people across the world.
Without mincing words, Hon. Mojisola Alli-Macaulay has the cognate qualities and experience to match any female leader on all standards. She commands such admirable poise and confidence that can be likened to world leaders – in the class of Barrack Obama and Hilary Clinton.
The crave for active women involvement in the nation’s politics and female representation are some of the founding inspirations behind Mama Amuwo’s decision to serve the people. Her thoughtful decision to delve into politics is a signal of imminent prosperity, victory and opportunity for the youths, the women and the Nigerian people at large.
Mama Amuwo is no doubt beyond the class of your average woman, as she does not pander to sycophancy, which has become the stock in trade of politicians in the Nigerian polity. She is a doughty reformer committed to changing the status quo, breaking barriers and building a better future for generations to come.
If history serves us right, then Mama Amuwo, some day, may yet become the harbinger of hope for the Nigerian women.
Vote wisely, Vote Hon. Mojisola Alli-Macaulay for effective representation
