A Nigerian female ruler, Tinuade Babalola Adejuiyegbe who is the Oluborapa of Iboropa in Akoko, Ondo state, made the history of becoming the first seating traditional monarch to participate in the three weeks National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) camping experience.
The excited ruler took to her Instagram page to share the news with her followers.
Oluboropa is the first female traditional monarch to achieve the feat while still occupying the throne.
The monarch revealed that she part took in camping activities in Minna and did everything other corps members were supposed to do apart from household works.
She further added that NYSC officials in the camp were informed of her status but her fellow corps members were not because she mingled so well with them.
“History was made today I went camping in minna paiko even though NYSC officials were informed of my coming, my fellow corpers didn’t know my real identity cause I blended so well and I did everything all Corp members did with the exemption of domestic work though,” her post read in part.
The Oluboropa extended her genuine gratitude to God, her parents, siblings, her chiefs and the people of Iboropa who all supported her.
