    Mrs Osinbajo so humble and modest in her ways and attitude. God please give me the grace never to puff-up when my time of glory comes. (Amen)

    Can’t these women dress themselves in something less ostentatious? Going around looking like bunch of circus freaks!

      I admire how lara seems like she’s genuinely interested in getting involved and helping. She’s always the only woman sometimes in the midst of all these babas. I like how he brings her along bcos most naija men will tell their wives at home.

    Lara doesn’t look happy to be among those women. Mrs Osinbanjo really really modest and humble. I’ve got great admiration for people like that.

    Mrs VP Dolapo Osinbajo looking good, this simplicity is a vast improvement, is she channelling Mrs SP Toyin Saraki’s dressing? Plain design dresses suit slim people better than fancy clothing, Mrs Iara Oshiomole hotly pretty woman, but why does she look so pale and scared? Mrs Ambode looks very different from her official pic, does Lagos governor have 2 wives? Mrs Siju Iluyomade? WTH? No words, frocky horror show. In a nutshell “less (and slim figure) is more”.

      Haha, on Mrs Ambode, it seems you’ve forgotten that there is something called makeup, filters and Photoshop. That’s why there are two different first lady for Lagos. Whop!

      True, Mrs Osinbajo and Mrs Saraki are both slim women who dress similarly. They know what suits them. Refreshing

    Pastor siji iluyomade of City of David, doesn’t play when it comes to dressing. Not a member of city of David, but anytime I visit for a weddn or event, I look out for her just to see what she’ll be wearing.

    Mrs osinbajo has got to know she’s a naturally beautiful woman who needs no frills gawdiness and ostentatiousness. Mrs osinbajo might be older than these freakish looking women yet she looks so young and fresh. Less is alwsys more

    Everyone is a pastor these days…..your husband is called, doesn’t mean the wife is called as well.

    That material is horrible…totally wrong . And Pastor Siji missed it with the styling…JUst use plain pink or any color not tthat combo.

    “Pastor” Siju of all things temporal. Pastor Mrs Osinbajo fresh simple and cute. Mrs Fashola of dowdy by design. Iara Oshiomole pretty gal needs a gele expert. Mrs Ambode LOL on photoshop. Kwara “Deaconess” Omolewa Ahmed forming Evangelist Sister Mary Amaka? How market ? Houses and restaurants in America. From rags to looting billions in rags, life is but a contract.. Repent.
