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 fit?
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)
