Uruemu Adejinmi Elected As Mayor In Ireland (First Black African Woman) by Nobody: 5:39pm On Jun 26, 2021
I am now detribalised, enjoy cheesy We celeberate with our Yoruba brethren.

Nigerian, Uruemu Adejinmi has emerged as the first migrant, first African and the first black female to be elected as Mayor in the Republic of Ireland.

With Ms Adejimi’s new election as Cathaoirleach of the Longford Municipal District, she also becomes the first female African mayor in the country, Irish Times reports.

Reacting to her victory, Ms Adejinmi who is the current councillor of Fianna Fail, stated in a statement that she was “deeply honoured” to assume the new position.”

“This is a historic day for Longford and I am delighted to share this moment with my family and friends.

“I look forward to working with my council colleagues, council exec and all stakeholders to continue the growth and development of our municipal area and county,” she added.

After migrating from Nigeria to Longford in 2003, Ms Adejinmi in 2016 joined Fianna Fail before assuming the post of local councillor in 2020.

She attributes her involvement in politics to her neighbour who asked her to join Fianna Fail saying, “If it wasn’t for my neighbour asking me to join his party, I wouldn’t have considered politics.”

Speaking to the Irish Times on the challenges faced by migrants who try to get involved in politics, Ms Adejinmi admonished political parties to “engage more actively” with migrants, noting that, “there is no shortage of talent in the migrant community but there is a shortage of community leaders from migrant backgrounds.”

The Masters of Business Administration holder from Athlone Institute of Technology identified jobs and housing as her key priorities.

“I am hoping to lobby for an influx of industry. Hopefully businesses will take a look at starting in Longford and that would help a lot of people who are leaving or commuting because of the lack of jobs,” she said.

Chidinma Ojukwu would have been a Mayor in Slovakia or Pennis ylvania, (USA) but her monstrous appetite for material things and overaged Pennis caused her downfall.

Very elating.

We need young visionary leaders here in Nigeria come 2023.
Agugbadin:


Let Buhari be the last president above the age of 50yrs that Nigeria will ever produce. Although Demeji Bankole was young but corrupt we will be more careful in selecting our leaders.
Not just young but must be visionary with track records or implementation capabilities.
