Mrs. Oyindamola Olorogun, a female Sergeant-at-Arms, became the first woman to bear the Mace (an emblem of authority), on Monday, September 28, as she led Lagos Speaker, Hon. Mudashiru Obasa into the Chamber.
As she signalled the entrance of the Assembly Speaker, she shouted, “Order! Mr Speaker.”
Being unprecedented, members of the assembly, including visitors from Borno Assembly, were astonished when she led the Speaker into the Chambers for proceedings.
Mrs Olorogun, a 33-year-old mother of two, is one of the female members of the Sergent-at-Arms Corps of Lagos Assembly, which was only recently enlarged to include females. She is an HND graduate of Moshood Abiola Polytechnic, Abeokuta.
She joined the Lagos House of Assembly Service Commission in 2019.
