Nike Ajibosin is known to be a powerful civil servant with Lagos State House of Assembly and she is rumoured to have two mansions on highbrow Banana Island, Ikoyi, Lagos.

Details also revealed that has been using her vantage position to allegedly enrich herself to a very good end. It was alleged that her homestead is always besieged by lobbyists, contractors, and general favour-seekers, who throng there in their scores to get assistance and favours from the Speaker.

She is also alleged to be so powerful that even honourable members of the hallowed chambers deal with her at arm’s length for fear of not incurring her anger or wrath, should they step on her toes for any reason whatsoever,” the report said.

Ajibosin began her career in the Lagos State civil servant where she was posted to the Lagos State House of Assembly as a Youth Corp member a few years back during the tenure of the immediate past Speaker, Adeyemi Ikuforiji.

She did her primary assignment in the protocol office of the then Speaker and has grown to wield so much power.
