MAPOLY Graduate Breaks 41-Year-Old Jinx, Becomes First Lagos Assembly Female Mace Bearer

A female Sergeant-at-Arms, Mrs. Oyindamola Olorogun, made history on Monday as the first woman to bear the Mace (symbol of authority), which led Lagos Speaker, Hon. Mudashiru Obasa into the Chamber.

The 33- year- old mother of two is a Higher National Diploma graduate of Moshood Abiola Polytechnic, Abeokuta. It was the first time in history of the assembly that a female would bear the mace.

 

She was the focus of all eyes at the plenary session as she shouted “Order! Mr Speaker,” signaling entrance of the Honorable Speaker. Not a few members, including visitors from Borno Assembly, were taken aback when she led the Speaker into the Chambers for proceedings.

 

Olorogun is one of the female members of the Sergent-at-Arms Corps of Lagos Assembly, which was only recently enlarged to include females.

 

She joined the Lagos House of Assembly Service Commission in 2019.
