Dolapo Osinbajo reveals her encounter with the stage play, “Area Boy.”
Oludolapo Osinbajo, the wife of the Vice President, has revealed how the stage play “Area Boy” reminded her of the time she spent working in the slums of Lagos among Lagos area boys.
Osinbajo revealed this on Saturday at the National Conference for the MTN led Anti-Substance Abuse Programme held in Abuja.
A statement credited to Osinbajo reads: “I insisted on watching the play, which is based on the perils of substance abuse, because I wanted to recollect a past experience.
“I wanted to watch the drama to relive again the times that I spent working in the slums of Lagos amongst the area boys, amongst prostitutes, amongst the rejects, and the lost.
“The drama was so life-like that I can pinpoint aspects of my experience in the dramatic piece, and as the drama went on, I can identify some people that I knew so many years ago.”
Urging all stakeholders to join in the fight against drug abuse, Osinbajo noted that the multi-headed monster would require a multi-stakeholder intervention.
