About Kudirat Aka-Bashorun

Mrs Kudirat Alao Aka Bashorun came from a Muslim background and got married to her late husband on the 11th day of November 1964. She is blessed with four children.

At the age of 53, she converted to Christain.

She stood solidly behind their husband during his many activities against military dictatorship. She took care of the home front in the dark days of military rule. Kudirat, whose father was the Ajiroba of Lagos, became a councilor in Surulere Local Government Area of Lagos State.

Her husband, Alao Aka-Bashorun who also died at the age of 75 was considered as one of the unsung heroes of June 12.

The activities of the late Alao Aka-Bashorun undoubtedly contributed to shaping the agitation against the annulment of the June 12, 1993, presidential election.

The military regime of General Ibrahim Babangida also seized his passport in 1990 because of his unending opposition to military rule. He pursued lofty ideals for the NBA to be a fortress for the oppressed and the weak until he died on October 1, 2005.

The late Kudirat Aka-Bashorun is the mother of the foremost TV host of ‘Your View’ on TVC, Morayo Afolabi-Brown.
