I watch a lot of Donald Trump shows but I don’t know if I can call him a president—Sen Bucknor-Akerele + Her beauty routine @ 78

Senator Kofoworola Bucknor-Akerele, Former Deputy Governor of Lagos State

Former Lagos State Deputy Governor, Senator Kofoworola Bucknor-Akerele in
this final part of our exclusive encounter with her inside her Victoria Island,
Lagos (Nigeria) home revealed some of her beauty tips to us and why she still
looks trendy at 78. The former Senator of the Federal Republic of Nigeria
claims she loves watching America’s President Donald Trump’s shows on TV every night but finds it hard to believe
he is the president of world’s most powerful country. She revealed this amidst
a windstorm of laughter which ended the session of the encounter with Asabeafrika. Enjoy the excerpts

You don’t look 78, what is the secret
of your beauty and fitness?

Sen. Bucknor-Akerele….’At 78, i am game with God’

Well, there is
no secret; I just believe it is the grace of God.
Are there things you do that a lot of
people of your age don’t do, maybe in terms of gym or swimming?

The Senator & The GDA in a lighter mood

Well, I can
say I watch my diet. I try to eat healthy and of course I exercise every day.
What other hobbies do you do to keep

The Senator shares a joke with the GDA

Well, I have
a swimming pool in my new house, maybe I will be swimming. (Laughter)
You are firstly a lawyer before you
became a journalist; which of the two professions do you love most?

Sen. Bucknor-Akerele, a lawyer, journalist & politician

Well, I love
both actually because I somehow think they are inter-related.
I think you finally did politics too?
I think they
all help each other.
At your age what other things are you
asking from life?

So what does she wants again? The GDA asks

Well, I
don’t think I am asking anything more from life because I think life has been very
good to me and God has been very good to me.
Do you have a role model, maybe a
global inspirational leader who inspires you?

Indira Ghandi? Yes, she is Sen. Bucknor-Akerele’s global mentor

Well, I will
say globally, I admire Indira
(Priyadarshini) Ghandi a lot.
Oh, you mean the only female prime
minister in the history of India, why?
She was
firm, she was resolute in what she wanted for her country and she executed it.
I was thinking you will go to
Pakistan and name Benazir Bhutto?

Benazir Bhutto? Not Senator Bucknor-Akerele’s favorite World Leader

Well, I love
her too but I think Indira Ghandi was
more of that person for me.
Do you have a favorite channel, CNN,
Al-Jazerra or BBC?

The Senator loves channel shuttling on her TV set

I watch all
of them. I am one of these people who switch from channels to channels and I
watch a lot of Trump shows every night.
(General Laughter) What fascinates
you about President Donald Trump? I think he is one hell of a President who is
brutally frank to a fault and never care whose ox is gored?

The Comic Relief Personality for Senator Bucknor-Akerele is President Donald Trump of America

That is why
I said I watch the Trump Show every
night. (Laughter)
I think he is a natural man just like
our own Chief Obasanjo, he is blunt to a fault?

The GDA & The Senator shared heavy laughter over President Donald Trump’s theatrics

Ah, no, I do
not think you could utterly compare Trump
to Obasanjo. Obasanjo was a President.
So, what is Trump?
I am sorry
to say, I don’t know what to make of Trump
as a president.  (Roaring Laughter)
