Call it destiny or sheer providence, the fact remains that Salmot Badru, a fomer Ogun State Deputy Governor, is one of the luckiest politicians around. The Awori-born politician served as the deputy to former Governor Otunba Gbenga Daniel. After the expiration of their eight-year tenure, she was hardly seen in social or political circles. It was rumoured then that she had returned to her initial profession, NURSING, as she was said to own some hospitals in Lagos.
The quiet woman recently bagged another appointment from the Federal Government as a member of the board of the Federal Capital Development Authority. The President Goodluck Ebele Jonathan recently approved the constitution of nine new boards of federal parastatals featuring people like prominent businessman, Ben Murray Bruce and others.
The composition of the boards was made public with a statement signed by the Secretary to the Government of the Federation, Chief Anyim Pius Anyim. Badru, who had to quit politics about two years ago, is back in the fold.
