In politics, greatness lies not in influence but in its pursuit for the greater good of all and the individual. Judging by her life outside power corridors, it could be assumed that the lessons of political experience, as of personal experience, were never lost on Hon. Titi Oseni. The once influential Speaker of the Ogun State House of Assembly has undoubtedly embraced the consequences of her actions in office, but unlike several of her peers, she understands that she cannot force the odds or negativities in her favour. Neither can she maul unforgiving fate to rewrite her life’s script. Oseni simple makes the best of her current situation.
Ever since she made history by becoming the first (and only) female speaker of the Ogun State House of Assembly, Hon. Titi Oseni has remained in the eye of the public. Her tenure as the state’s Number 3 citizen coupled with her closeness to the then governor, Gbenga Daniel, made her one of the most influential figures in the Gateway State. However, since she left office, the chocolate-skinned woman has refrained from visible participation in politics. She has maintained a low profile, living a life of semi-retirement from the political arena.
Her non-visibility even led some to suggest that she was busy re-knitting her marriage from the severe strain her involvement in politics had brought on it. It was a delightful surprise for many, therefore, when she was sighted at the 60th birthday bash of Senator Jumoke Okoya-Thomas a few weeks ago. And the fact that she stepped out with her husband was indication that all is well on the home front.
