A Nigerian female monarch, Tinuade Babalola Adejuiyegbe who is the Oluborapa of Ibroropa in Akoko, Ondo state, has made history as the first seating traditional ruler to participate in the three weeks National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) camping experience. The excited monarch took to her official page on photo-sharing app, Instagram, to share the news with her followers.
According to the Oluboropa, she is the first traditional ruler to achieve the feat while still occupying the throne. The monarch disclosed that she was a part of camping activities in Minna and did everything other corps members were expected to do apart from domestic works. She added that NYSC officials in the camp were aware of her identity but her fellow corps members were not because she blended so well with them. â€œHistory was made today I went to camp in minna paiko even though NYSC officials were informed of my coming, my fellow corpers didnâ€™t know my real identity cause I blended so well and I did everything all Corp members did with the exemption of domestic work though,â€ her post read in part.
The Oluboropa extended her since appreciation to God, her parents, siblings, her chiefs and the people of Iboropa who all supported her.
