Nigerian-born British Politician Olukemi Badenoch, who was appointed as the junior minister for children and families by Prime Minister, Boris Johnson is an exceptional woman..

It may be known to many that she was appointed following her election as a Member of Parliament (MP).

But here are a few unknown facts about the new junior minister:

1. Olukemi lost an election for a seat in the London Assembly but was later selected after two other members gave up their seats in 2012.

2. A jack of all trades, Olukemi worked as a systems analyst before pursuing a career in consultancy and financial services, working as an associate director of private bank and wealth manager Coutts and later a director at the conservative magazine The Spectator.

She was also previously a school governor at St Thomas the Apostle College in Southwark and the Jubilee Primary School.

3. At an early age of 25, she joined the Conservative Party and contested against Labour and Liberal Democrat candidates.

4. Olukemi was listed at Number 96 on Conservative political commentator Iain Dale’s “100 most influential on the Right 2017”.

Badenoch is a British Conservative politician and Member of Parliament (MP) for Saffron Walden.

39-year old Adegoke was born in Wimbledon, London to parents of Nigerian origin.

Her childhood was spent in Lagos, Nigeria and the United States.
