Igbinedion's Name has Been a Blessing and Curse to Me-Osasu Igbinedion
Igbinedion’s name has been blessing, curse to me – Osasu, ex-Edo gov’s daughter
Osasu Igbinedion is from the affluent and influential Igbinedion lineage. She is the daughter of former Governor Lucky Igbinedion of Edo State, and her mother is Eki Igbinedion.
She is the initiator of the Osasu Show Foundation, a non-governmental organisation, and a TV presenter whose show, The Osasu Show, is a platform to connect the electorate and the elected.
In spite of her affluent background, Osasu still believes that the less privileged need to be taken care of.
According to her, if the downtrodden are ignored in society, there would be a time when they would feed on the rich as food.
She told Daily Sun recently in Abuja that the name Igbinedion has both been a blessing and a curse for her.
Could you give us some insight into your academic background?
I attended Igbinedion Education Centre, from where I proceeded to Stonehill College and got a degree in communications, then I attended Northeastern University, where I studied corporate and organisational communication. Thereafter, I took a certificate course in television and film producing from the New York Film Academy.
