Every human being is intended to have a character of his own; to be what no other is, and to do what no other can do.” – William Ellery Channing.

In the beginning … 

Omolara Adesanya, an indigene of Lagos State, was born 61 years ago on the 23rd. of June, 1957 to the Williams family. She is the eldest sister to the famed late Pastor Bimbo Odukoya.

All round rich experience …

She started her unbroken 35 years career with the Central Bank of Nigeria, immediately after serving her NYSC with the organization, rising through the ranks as Finance/Accounts Officer, Internal Auditor, Senior Manager Banking Supervision until she retired on June 23, 2017 as a Deputy Director to pursue her dream as a world class Event Planner. In the course of her career she undertook a plethora of local and offshore executive training programs to further sharpen her professional cutting edge. She holds a Master’s degree in Business Management, and is presently the Managing Director of Royal Dainties Events, an event planning and management company located in Lagos.

Well grounded pedigree … 

Lara, as she is fondly called by friends and associates, is focused and down to earth. She is a loving and virtuous wife to the love of her life, Quantity Surveyor Kolawole Adesanya. She is a doting mother of three grown and well groomed children. She is an amiable women leader and a large hearted philanthropist. She is a God fearing woman of impeccable pedigree, and a minister of the gospel with the Fountain of Life Church in Ilupeju. She is an astute entrepreneur manning a string of thriving businesses.

Breath of fresh air … 

Her entry into the world of politics on the platform of Providence People’s Congress is a breath of fresh air, and a welcome game changer to the Lagos State political landscape where she is running as the Governorship candidate of her Party.

What a man can do … 

At the advent of two past women Deputy Governors in the history of governance in Lagos State, it is Omolara’s opinion that the State is ripe and ready for a Lady-Governor. The sweeping trend in successful governance with women at the helm in other climes should serve as inspiring testimonies.

No haunting baggage … 

As a team player, she has an insatiable appetite and passion for value driven leadership contributing to goal achievement and efficiency which will reflect on her governance. Graced with the blessing of no sordid baggage, she is a sworn enemy of money politics and the concept of ‘godfatherism’, but rather a firm believer in God the Father.

Professional membership …

She is a fellow of the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Nigeria and Taxation. She is also a member of Institute of Pension Administrators, Women in Business (WIMBIZ), Anointed Women Of God Ministry (AWOGM)and Pastor Bimbo Odukoya Foundation

 (PBOF).

Athletic, sporty Lara … 

Omolara was also a great athlete in her prime who represented Lagos State at various sporting field events during National Sports Festivals raking in altogether about 17 medals which included gold, silver and bronze.

Finally … 

In Omolara’s acceptance to run as her party’s Lagos State Governorship candidate at the 2019 polls, she also accepted to be a restorer of hope to the hopeless, a voice to the voiceless, a lover of the neglected, a bridge builder to the new, young and old, to the weak and strong, and to the rich and poor. She accepted the challenge to build upon and improve all existing economic and infrastructural development in the State making it conducive for living and business for all and sundry to the admiration of other States and the general comity of nations.
