“I am sure she will be a wonderful deputy governor because I am confident of her intelligence.”
Other dignitaries present at the event includes the representative of the Ooni of Ife, Oba Babatunde Awosile; Speaker of the Ogun State House of Assembly, Olakunle Oluomo; former Senator representing Lagos West, Musiliu Obanikoro and former deputy governor of Ogun State, Mrs Salmot Baduru.
