“God first in everything. All glory and honour to the Almighty. This victory is an affirmation of your love for my contributions to the development of Oluyole Federal Constituency. It stresses further the importance of continuity”, she said.
“In all facets, my constituents should expect more from me, I will not disappoint or betray the confidence reposed in me”, she added.
