Meet The First African And Nigerian Woman To
Earn A Degree In Oxford University
It is good to be the first to accomplish a feat and it
feels really good to be recognised for it. Today,
Nigerian blog Factboyz wants to recognise a hero
who should be known by all as she accomplished
a great feat setting an example for African and
Nigerian women.
Kofoworola Ademola was born in 1913 to the well
renowned Lagos lawyer Omoba Eric Olawolu
Moore, a member of an Egba royal family, and his
wife Aida Arabella (née Vaughan), who descended
from Scipio Vaughan (through whom she also had
Cherokee ancestry.
She studied at the CMS Girls school in Lagos before
proceeding to New York USA where she was
admitted into the Vasser College. She moved to
Portway College Reading, United Kingdom and St.
Hugh's college Oxford where she studied from 1931
to 1935.
Due to her determination and sheer ruggedness to
pursue her dreams, she earned a degree in
education from Oxford while at Oxford she wrote
a 21-page autobiography at the insistence of
Margery Perham, a British historian and a scholar
on African affairs to challenge British stereotypes
about Africans, she wrote of her childhood as a
mixture of western cultural orientation and African
orientation.
In 1939, she married Adetokunbo Ademola, a
renowned Nigerian lawyer who went on to
become the Chief Justice of Nigeria from 1958 to
1972. He also doubled as the Chancellor of the
University of Benin. The union was blessed with 5
children.
Lady Ademola as she is often called helped to
pioneer women affairs in Nigeria. In 1958, when
the National Council of Women Societies was
formed she was chosen as the first president. As
president, she became a board member of the
International Council of Women.
Ademola was also a social worker, teacher and
educator, she co-founded two schools: the Girls
Secondary Modern School in Lagos and New Era
Girls' Secondary School, Lagos. She was a director
of the board of trustees of the UBA (United Bank
For Africa) and secretary of the Western Region
Scholarship Board. She also wrote children's books,
many of them based in West African folklore,
including
Greedy Wife and the Magic Spoon, Ojeje Trader
and the Magic Pebbles, Tutu and the Magic Gourds,
and Tortoise and the Clever Ant, all part of the
"Mudhut Book" series.
She was appointed a Member of the Order of the
British Empire in 1959, receiving the award from
Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother.
Abubakar Tafawa Balewa's government in the
1960s awarded her the honour of membership of
the Order of the Federal Republic.
She holds the traditional chieftaincy title She held
the chieftaincy titles of the Mojibadeof Ake and
the Lika of Ijemo
