“We not only commend Governor Abiodun for giving women more sense of belonging since the inception of his Administration, as he is the only governor in Nigeria with a female deputy governor and two female HoS in succession; and in line with our party’s agenda, we also urge him to continue to open up the democratic space for the women folks.”, the statement added.
Describing the new HOS as a thoroughbred professional and administrator, the party urged her to bring her wealth of experience to bear on the Dapo Abiodun Administration’s developmental objectives for the State, especially in this challenging times”.
