“We all know that it was a well deserved promotion, considering the First Lady’s solid background as an academic prodigy. We are indeed proud of her academic exploits in one of the most venerated nation’s academic hub, The University of Ibadan.

“This coming at a time she is serving the State was a well amplified testimony to her unflagging commitment to coalesce actions, efforts and her mental prowess with our Governor, Biodun Abayomi Oyebanji to serve humanity and radicalise the face of governance in our dear state.
