Olori Badirat, youngest wife of the Alaafin of Oyo, Oba Lamidi Adeyemi, has concluded her one-year National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) programme.

The mother of three got her certificate of national service in a low-key ceremony for 2019 Batch “B” Stream 2 corps members on Thursday, July 16.

She posted a picture of herself fully kitted in NYSC uniform with her certificate on Instagram

“VERIFIED HOLDER. Delayed not Denied,” she captioned the post.

She also tagged her mum, actress Adewumi Bello, asking “hope I make you proud?”

Queen Ola, as she is known on Instagram, began her NYSC programme in August 2019.

She announced her enrolment for the scheme with pictures of herself fully dressed as a Youth Corps member.

“NIGERIA WE SERVE. Alihamdulilahi for the journey so far,” she captioned the pictures.

With the suspension of NYSC activities across the country because of the coronavirus, the young queen confessed in an Instagram post on May 7 that she missed wearing the uniform.

“I miss this uniform,” she wrote, adding the hashtag #2monthstogo.

The NYSC had earlier announced the presentation of certificate to 2019 Batch “B” Stream 2 corps members will be low-key as a precautionary measure to the threat posed by COVID-19 pandemic.

A statement signed by corps’ spokesperson Adenike Adeyemi further revealed that the distribution of  certificate shall be staggered for a period of 10 days in the first instance, in keeping with the safety measures established by Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC).

Olori Badirat is a graduate of the University of Ibadan.

She was recently caught in a storm of controversy when it was maliciously reported that she was chased out of the Alaafin’s palace because of an affair with fuji singer K1 de Ultimate.
