Nigerian Senator Who Has 15 Kids, Ipoola Omisore Says He Loves Women
July 8, 2014 – Nigerian Senator Who Has 15 Children Ipoola Omisore Says He Loves Women
A Lagos-based senator representing Ifako Ijaiye Const. 2 at the Lagos House of Assembly Senator Ipoola Omisore disclosed that he has 15 kids during a press conference today.
The 66-year-old Senator said his condition is hereditary.
Omisore however warns other men not to follow his footsteps.
Here is an excerpt from his press statement
“Having many children is hereditary. My grandfather, the real Omisore, died in 1941. He was survived by 99 sons and 58 daughters yet ‘abiku’ (evil spirit that kills infants) worried him so much.
“I am the 58th child of my father and I have 18 younger ones. In my family number does not matter and we believe so much in education, even ordinary carpenter in my family might be a graduate.
“For those who come from a background of one or two children, if you try to copy me, you would regret it.
“My own is in-born and it is not deliberate. I had nine children at the age of 36, today, I have 15 children and almost all of them have graduated and are working. My first two children are doing well in Britain,”
“I would be 66 soon and it has nothing to do with what I do. If you want to be old, you would be old, if you want to be young, you would be young, it is a thing of the mind.”
Ipoola Omisore also revealed that the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, in Osun, Iyiola Omisore, is his nephew, and that his father is a monarch in Ile-Ife.
“Iyiola Omisore was a member of the progressive family, but by error of omission or commission he got himself out of progressive politics; he was the Deputy of former governor Bisi Akande then in Osun State.
“He was in a haste to become governor, so he lost his bearing and got edged out of progressive politics. He moved to the PDP and he became a thorn in the flesh of our party.
“He is my brother; if you talk about radicalism, he is behaving like the Omisores, but he is not as bad as he is being painted. He wants something and he is displaying the attributes of his political party and I am displaying that of my party. I am an embodiment of progressive politics.”
“Legislature is a different ball game unlike the executive where they say you can only serve two terms. The more you are here, the more you know the job. It was in the third year of my first term that I started to know what I should know.
“They had cheated me for long, and by the time I knew it, election was coming. By the time I came for the second term, I had been established. In your first term, you are a trainee legislator, in your second term, you are established and in your third term, you would be grounded,”.
