I Spent 10-years Under Lagos Bridges - Dolapo Osinbajo
Pastor ‘Dolapo Osinbajo, wife of the Vice President of Nigeria, Yemi Osinbajo, has recounted how she spent about 10years with street urchins under several notorious Lagos bridges in a bid to reshape their lives.

Speaking at a ‘Teens Career Conference’ organized by The Everlasting Arms Parish TEAP of the Redeemed Christian Church of God RCCG, Garki, Abuja, Mrs Osinbajo said; “When I became a worker in the church, the first place I worked was the Teenage Church and for 10 years I was in the Children’s Church.

For 10 years, I was under the bridge; under the bridge in Lagos with ‘Area Boys’. So, every kind of drug that there is, I know about it. I have seen it before and I have seen the effects as well and I will like you to know that the ones that use it are not different from you.

Some of them too have parents in the church. Some of them have parents with very big names. There are some streets in Lagos that the names of the streets are names of people, some of which have their children under the bridge.

There were people whose parents lived in America and yet their children were under the bridge. So, do not even imagine that it cannot happen to you, but you must be an example in your conduct”.
