Vice President Yemi Osinbajo may have his hands full with the duties of statecraft, but he did not forget matters of the heart as he remembered his wife, Dolapo on the 28th anniversary of their wedding.

In a six-line poem characterised by rhymes and rhythms, Osinbajo, the professor of law wrote on his Twitter page:

When our worlds collided, it was just a matter of time.
Our story began today, many years ago
The harmony in the symphony,
My treasure!
Happy Anniversary Oludolapo
Your heart is my home.

Surely bards will be filled with regret why literature lost the 60 year-old professor to the legal profession.

The romantic poem as at 11pm yesterday had attracted 3,600 retweets and close to 10,000 likes, setting a record on the page.

Osinbajo and Dolapo, nee Soyode, married in 1989. Dolapo is also a lawyer and the granddaughter of Obafemi Awolowo, the revered political legend in Nigeria. They have three children together.

Dolapo is a very religious woman. She  is the leader of the Ladies Fellowship of the Redeemed Christian Church of God (RCCG), Jesus House Parish.

The Osinbajos: Still a strong bond of romance 28 years after

In  2007, she collaborated with her husband to  found “The Orderly Society Trust”, a non- governmental organisation that is dedicated to the promotion of Christian ethics and orderliness.

She had  also shown a great concern about the street boys, who sleep under the bridge in Lagos. She chronicled her experience with them in a book: ‘They Call Me Mama!’, which was launched in 2014.
