Who is Aisha Achimugu: The socialite who hosted Sanwo-Olu at lavish Grenada birthday bash


Babajide Sanwo-Olu, the governor of Lagos State, recently returned from a lavish celebration in Grenada, where he attended the 50th birthday of businesswoman, Aisha Achimugu.

The governor, who left Lagos amid uncertainties about his whereabouts, partied on the Caribbean Island for several days, alternating between Calivigny Island and Silversand Grenada, according Premium Times.

The extravagant event, hosted by Achimugu, included chartered jets for guests, opulent parties with international musicians, and an estimated cost in billions of naira.

Sanwo-Olu’s absence during this period has raised questions about the use of public funds and his responsiveness to the challenges faced by Lagosians.

In her role, Aisha oversees various companies under the group.
At the forefront of the initiative for the development of a Deep Sea Port in South-South, Nigeria, Aisha serves as the first female consultant/transaction advisor for this project through Felak Concept Limited.

Born on January 22, 1974, to Capt. J.E. A & Mrs. Adole (Rtd.), Achimugu began her journey from humble beginnings, attending the Federal Government Girls Science School in Kuje, Abuja, and later earning a B.Sc in Accountancy from the University of Jos, Nigeria, in 1998.
