Meet The Female Senator Who Is The Only PDP Political Office Holder In Ekiti State

Meet the courageous Sen. Abiodun Christine Olujimi, a Senator representing Ekiti-South senatorial district, and Deputy Minority Whip at the Upper Chamber of the National Assembly of Nigeria. 

She is the only member of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP), who holds a political office in Ekiti state. Also, Senator Olujimi is the only Ekiti woman representative at the Upper Chamber. 

Sen. Abiodun Olujimi is considered as a woman with man's courage; a political juggernaut and the nationally recognised PDP leader in Ekiti state. She had previously dumped the All Progressive Congress and joined the PDP in 2002. 

A year after, Olujimi became the Special Assistant to the Executive Governor of Ekiti State. In 2005, she was elected Governor Ayo Fayose’s Deputy Governor of Ekiti State. Under the PDP, she has achieved greater heights and is now a two-term Senator. 

The former APC National Publicity Secretary was born on the 25th of December 1958, in Omuo Ekiti. Olujimi began her education at Our Lady of Apostles in Ibadan, Oyo State. In 1976, she bagged a Diploma from the Nigerian Institute of Journalism. 

Biodun Olujimi proceeded to the University of Abuja where she bagged a degree in Political Science and later obtained a Postgraduate degree in Public Relations and Marketing.

Today happens to be her 61st birthday celebration. Happy Birthday Senator Abiodun Olujimi.
