First of its kind! A woman and gender advocate, eyeing one of the
House of Representatives seats has blazed a trail, by first winning the ticket of the ruling PDP after a primary was conducted. Then she threw the ticket on the party’s face and crossed the lane to join APC
Ms Ayisha Osori, a lawyer, who made the unusual move today said: “I decided to denounce membership after watching the APC conduct its presidential primary in a fair and competitive manner and after seeing the combination of Osinbajo and Buhari, both men of integrity.
Osinbajo used to teach me at the University of Lagos, Faculty of Law, I believe that is a great combination that would move the country forward and I want to be part of that team. More than 70% of Nigerians are youths who want the change that APC represents.’’
Ms. Osori is a graduate of law from the University of Lagos and Harvard Law School and most recently graduated from the Harvard Kennedy School with a Masters in Public Administration. Osori now runs Nigerian Women Trust Fund, an NGO in Abuja.
She has worked in the oil and gas sector, financial services and FMCG sector. Most recently she was the lead consultant and national co-ordinator for the World Bank DFID Gender Dialogue Sessions. She is the founder of Advocates for Change & Social Justice.
She currently writes a weekly column for Leadership newspaper called ‘Nigerian Citizen’ where she covers social issues ranging from security and good governance to politics and values.”….. anyone who knows her should jst let her kno dt she’ll REGRET ds.
